Micronesian Educator, a journal of the School of Education at the University of Guam, publishes scholarly articles that come from a wide range of areas of educational research and related disciplines. The journal serves as a forum to share empirical findings, literature reviews, theoretical perspectives, and practical applications in such areas. 

The journal accepts the following types of submissions:

  • Research papers (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed)
  • Essays in theory and philosophy of education
  • Position papers
  • Opinion papers
  • Action research (by faculty and graduate students)
  • Creative writing (poetry, fiction, and personal essays)
  • Book reviews
  • Teaching tips

For Vol. 32, as with all previous issues, the Micronesian Educator seeks papers that address student success, academic performance, pedagogical problems, and examples and case studies of student engagement in higher education. Of particular interest will be papers related to faculty or student success, self-care experiences, and challenges during online learning and the COVID-19 pandemic.

As noted above, the editors would like to establish a section of Vol. 32 devoted entirely to articles and essays focused on PEDAGOGIES OF THE PANDEMIC: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS. For some years now, teachers and scholars have heard a slew of reports promoting online learning as the panacea for many educational settings. The COVID-19 crisis has provided a concrete set of circumstances that enable us for the first time to candidly assess the resilience and sustainability of the online model of learning. 

Of course, papers of a wide variety — including reports of research, descriptions of innovative teaching practices, and new empirical findings — will also be considered. 

Basic formatting guidelines for submissions:
  • Font: Calibri
  • Font size: 10
  • Line spacing: Single, with an extra line between paragraphs
  • L/R margins: 1"
  • Tabs: None except for separating long quotations
  • Running headings:  None

    • 4,000-8,000 words for research articles, action research, and essays
