EJOPA publishes scholarly articles, with or without embedded multimedia included in the article, including research studies, best practices, reviews of the literature, and book reviews. We will also consider publishing scholarly and creative endeavors in alternate forms of media (e.g., videos, photo-essays, written essays).

Manuscripts submitted are reviewed on a rolling basis, so authors can upload them to https://bearworks.missouristate.edu/ejopa/ at any time they reach closure. Final manuscripts will be subjected to copy-editing proofreading prior to publication.

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
