HEPE publishes peer-reviewed original empirical research. Research may employ a variety of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method approaches. Single and multi-institutional studies are encouraged, as well as innovative or provocative approaches to research or the way research is reported.
Review articles present critical evaluations of materials that have been previously published. Articles may include meta-analyses, policy analyses, and theoretical papers. Review articles should include the following sections: a) the issue being considered, b) summary of previous literature, c) discussion of relationships including inconsistencies, gaps, and disagreements.
Opinions are short, narrowly focused articles on issues of contemporary interest, viewpoints on published research, or emerging issues relevant to the readers of HEPE. Consider reviewing the following article, Tips for Scholars Writing, for best practices in writing an opinion piece.
