Submissions should have clearly identified recommendations for research, theory and practice which can lead to the improved condition of African American male students, teachers, faculty, staff, administrators, and fathers in P-20 educational contexts.


Type of Articles that JAAME Publishes


Manuscripts submissions to JAAME should illustrate clear evidence of a theoretical underpinning or conceptual framework. Submissions should be written in a manner which is comprehendible and useful to both researchers and practitioners of education in community and school settings. JAAME publishes several types of scholarly articles: a)research studies,which exhibit rigorous standards of empirical investigation. This includes studies which are mixed-methods, qualitative and quantitative in nature; b) literature reviews/conceptual analysis, whereby researchers synthesize their research to illustrate gaps in current scholarly works on a given subject area, or which present a cogent and new perspective on current theory and research in a given area. This includes studies such as integrative reviews, literature meta-syntheses, meta-analyses and general literature reviews; and c) book reviews, which critically synthesize and/or analyze recent scholarly or practitioner oriented books on a given subject area. Author(s) interested in conducting a book review for submission to JAAME are advised to speak to the editor(s) in advance.
