Submit Papers for Consideration

The AARC Education Section invites educators to submit papers for consideration. Preference will be given to papers that emphasize original research, applied research, or evaluation of an educational method. Other topics that may be considered include interpretive reviews of literature, educational case studies, and point-of-view essays. Submissions will be reviewed based on originality, significance and contribution, soundness of scholarship (design, instrumentation, data analysis), generalizability to the education community, and overall quality of the paper.

Papers should be approximately 6–10 pages in length and must follow the guidelines as established by Respiratory Care. Abstracts should not exceed 250 words. Guidelines for authors, including general guidelines for the manuscript as well as guidelines for preparing the manuscript, text formatting, and reference formatting is available.

For more information, contact Dr. Dennis Wissing, Editor, at (318) 573-9788 or Dr. Shawna Strickland at (972) 243-2272. Please send all manuscripts to the Editorial Board via the Respiratory Care Education Annual manuscript submission form. Deadline is typically early February. The annual call for papers will be published in the AARConnect Education Specialty Section community and in the AARC Times.
