Check out The Journal of Expanded Learning Opportunities (JELO), a new peer-reviewed, online, open-access journal. Its aim is to promote scholarship and consciousness of the ways in which students' engagement in afterschool and expanded learning activities contributes to their learning and development through the publication of original empirical, practical, and theoretical manuscripts in two categories:
- Research-based: presentation of new research using data that includes an abstract, an introductory paragraph, a brief literature review, methods (quantitative and/or qualitative), results, and implications. An example would be an academic or field study.
- Practitioner-based: presentation of an essay or brief focused on a specific promising practice that includes an abstract, introductory paragraph, discussion of the practice, and recommendations for implementation, sustainability, and scaling. An example would be a review of a program project/activity.
