Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration.
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word file format.
- The instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed. The submission is de-identified, that is author information, affiliation details and references to the author’s works have been removed.
- DOI (if available) or URLs (where relevant) for references have been provided.
- The text and formatting adhere to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- The submission has a high standard of written English. Please note that the submission will be returned to you after an initial review by an editor if the standard of written English is not of a suitable quality.
- This is a new submission, not a revised version of a manuscript already under review within AJET.
- Authors are expected to include a statement somewhere in their methods section about the ethics issues relevant to the research and approvals under which the data was collected and reported. This requirement may not be relevant for some articles such as literature reviews.
Copyright in individual articles contained in Australasian Journal of Educational Technology is vested in each of the authors in respect of his or her contributions. Copyright in AJET is vested in ASET (1985-86), AJET Publications (1987-1996), and ASCILITE and ASET (from 1997). No part of AJET may be reprinted or reproduced without permission from the publishers, except that authors (or an author's employer at the time of publication) may make multiple copies of their own articles (subject to identifying each copy as an article which was published originally in AJET).
This key part of this statement, applying since AJET's inception in 1985, indicates that we do not compel authors to transfer copyright to AJET, although copyright in the compilation of articles in each issue and volume belongs to AJET. The phrase "Copyright... is vested in each of the authors..." should be interpreted to include cases in which an author's employer is the copyright owner.
However, AJET's Management Committee reserve the right to approve requests for the making of copies for non-profit educational purposes. Authors should note that requests for a copyright permission are infrequent, owing to AJET's policy of open access. Any copies that are made, either in print or on a website, whether by the authors or by other persons, must be identified as having been published in AJET. Copies of the PDF file that constitutes the definitive print version for pre-2008 articles, with embedded bibliographic information and page numbers, may be obtained from the Editors, or from the website in the case of post-2007 articles. In the case of the HTML version, ensure that the 'Please cite as' section in the file footer is included in any copies or remounts.
AJET's Management Committee reserves the right to make agreements with the publishers of database products and indexing and abstracting journals to include AJET content and to receive electronic copies of AJET content for these purposes. These agreements do not affect authors' retention of copyright or the open access status of AJET content.
In accordance with open access principles, it is the intention of AJET and AJET's authors that no charges be levied upon readers or educational institutions by royalty or copyright fee collection agencies, or by database vendors, for reader access to AJET's online, free to the Internet articles.
