Journal of Campus Title IX Compliance and Best Practices
The Journal of Campus Title IX Compliance and Best Practices (Campus IX) is the flagship, peer-reviewed journal of the Association of Title IX Administrators. This journal will offer a space for Title IX coordinators, investigators and administrators to come together and explore emerging best practices, cutting-edge research, legal opinions and practical case studies relevant to the field of sexual assault prevention, investigation, remedies and response.
The journal will be launched for the ATIXA/SCOPE 2015 Joint National Conference with the call for submissions having been made during the ATIXA/SCOPE 2014 Joint National Conference. Article submissions are encouraged in a variety of content areas. These include:
- Original research in the areas of campus sexual assault, investigation, coordination, administration. Preference will be give to studies that have generalizable results and are based on findings from multiple college and universities rather than a single school.
- Case studies that provide clear teachable moments and illustrations for those working in the field.
- Summary of law and policy and/or exploration of legal issues related to Title IX and sexual assault.
- Discussion of policy and administration challenges and best practices.
- Review of current prevention programs, investigation procedures or educational efforts.
Those interested in submitting an article should do so via email to the Campus IXmanaging editor, Dr. Brian Van Brunt, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission criteria are included below.
Articles should be submitted prior to July 15, 2015 to be considered for publication in the 2015 edition of the Campus IX journal.
Guidelines for Authors
The Association of Title IX Administers announces the launch of its flagship, peer-reviewed academic journal, The Journal of Campus Title IX Compliance and Best Practices (Campus IX). Campus IX is intended to encourage academic research and scholarship regarding sexual assault prevention, investigation, coordination and administration at two- and four-year colleges and universities. Top Title IX scholars and practitioners on the editorial board review all submissions to Campus IX.
Original Research studies may include quantitative, qualitative, or mixed method designs and should follow American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines for content and format. Research manuscripts should address questions important to the field of sexual assault prevention, investigations, coordination and/or administration of policy. Articles should include implications for practice and future research. Submissions should not exceed 25 pages in length (double-spaced, size 12 font, 1 inch margins), including references, and up to three tables and two figures. Campus IX actively seeks research manuscripts.
Case Study manuscripts are published in the Campus IX to encourage discussion among those practicing proactive approaches and illustrate important aspects of Title IX compliance and best practices. Authors should take appropriate steps to safeguard private information (e.g. changing names and identifying details). Case Study submissions are actively encouraged. Case studies that encourage discussion are preferred. Submissions should not exceed 10 pages in length (double-spaced, size 12 font, 1 inch margins), including references, and up to three tables and two figures (or photos).
Innovative Practice manuscripts may present an in depth analysis and discussion of current issues related to the practice of Title IX compliance and best practices in higher education settings. These manuscripts should include a critical review of the relevant literature and research related to the professional issue addressed. Submissions should not exceed 25 pages in length (double-spaced, size 12 font, 1 inch margins), including references, and up to three tables and two figures. Campus IX actively seeks practical application manuscripts.
All manuscripts should be prepared according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). APA guidelines should be followed for all aspects of manuscripts, including format of manuscript, figures, tables, references and citations, and other details of editorial style. Authors are encouraged to report data in terms of effect sizes and to discuss the practical significance of results for campus compliance and best practice.
All manuscripts should include a 50- to 70-word abstract. Care should be taken to avoid language that would imply bias against individuals on the basis of race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, age, or disability. Do not use footnotes.
Lengthy quotations (generally 500 cumulative words or more from one source) require written permission from the copyright holder for reproduction. It is the author’s responsibility to secure such permission, and a copy of the publisher’s written permission must be provided to the editor immediately upon acceptance for publication.
Manuscripts should be submitted in electronic format (MS Word, WordPerfect, RTF, or DOS text) as an e-mail attachment sent to email@example.com.
Authors whose manuscripts have been accepted for publication are expected to work collaboratively with the editorial board to address editorial comments. ATIXA will provide authors with page proofs (in PDF format) of the edited manuscript for their final review prior to publication. Authors bear full responsibility for the accuracy of all references, figures, and tables.
The editorial board will anonymously review manuscripts and authors will be notified of their manuscript status within 30 days.
ATIXA Research Awards
Three $2500 research awards will be given to those creating new and innovative research in the field of Title IX Compliance and Best Practices. Research awards will be granted based on the scope of the study, the contribution to the field and advancement of best practices.
Those chosen for the research awards will publish their results in the Journal of Campus Title IX Compliance and Best Practices (Campus IX) and present their research during a 90-minute ATIXA online training.
The 2014-2015 submission for research grants is now closed.
