Journal of School-based Counseling Policy and Evaluation (JSCPE)

Call for manuscripts for inaugural publication

The International Society for Policy Research and Evaluation in School-Based Counseling (ISPRESC) is launching a new scholarly journal for practicing counselors, counselors in training, and academics aligned with school-based counseling. With the first issue, we hope to initiate a serious international conversation about the need for innovative and wide-ranging school-based counseling policymaking that is founded on scientific evidence and rigorous evaluations.

Given the journal is international in focus and distribution, contributions are welcomed from authors who represent school-based counseling in their particular countries. All manuscripts will be blindly reviewed.
