The Journal of Educational Leadership, Policy and Practice has two issues per year. It publishes the work of established and new scholars and practitioners.  The journal aims to highlight new knowledge and important ideas from New Zealand and internationally.  In particular, JELPP welcomes studies that further international debates in the field of educational leadership.

The Journal of Educational Leadership, Policy and Practice is indexed in INNZ and is published on line with the Informit e-library.   An international board of leading academics supports the journal. Read more about the Board here.



Two issues of the Journal are included with annual membership of NZEALS.  Journals cost $25 each, including p&p within New Zealand, and will be sent with an invoice. To order an individual copy of JELPP, email your request to Michele Morrison.

Paper submission

Papers may be submitted at any time of year; in addition, calls for papers will be issued before each journal deadline.  All papers are subject to refereeing by two independent scholarly reviewers before being considered for publication. Once accepted, papers may be subject to minor editorial revisions.
