Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education: An International Journal (DIME)
A quarterly peer-reviewed journal focused on critical discourse and research in diaspora, indigenous, and minority education – is dedicated to enhancing cultural sustainability in a world increasingly consolidating under national, transnational, and global organizations. It aims to draw attention to, and learn from, the many initiatives being conducted around the globe in support of diaspora, indigenous, and minority education, which might otherwise go unnoticed.
DIME invites research from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives that emphasize the centrality of marginal voices and a peripheral gaze, and which draw attention to the complex interrelations between political, economic, historical, and social contexts, as well as the ways in which these various contexts shape educational policies, practices, curricula, and outcomes. The journal welcomes articles that ground theoretical reflections in specific empirical research and case studies of diverse locations and peoples as yet underrepresented within scholarly research and literature, as well as action or participatory research studies of exemplary or “best” practices.
Intended to bridge arbitrary disciplinary boundaries in which such research and theorizing are currently conducted, DIME encourages cutting-edge work from around the world to enhance understanding of the relationships between home and school cultures; educational development, curriculum, and cultural change; local, regional, national, and/or transnational forces or institutions; culture, ethnicity, and gender in identity construction; migration and educational change; and societal attitudes and cultural variation.
International researchers, teaching professionals and educators, students, community activists and advocates, and policy and program specialists involved in multicultural education, bilingual education, global/international education, migration, diaspora, and immigration studies, and cross-cultural studies, as well as all others who share an interest in educational issues that impact diaspora, indigenous, and minority populations. DIME aims to be of service to these individuals, groups, agencies, and institutions by offering a common forum for sharing their work.
Manuscripts. Submissions to this category must be original research involving either empirical or analytical (conceptual) research, framed within a well-developed theoretical context. The manuscript should be double-spaced—including title page, text, tables, charts, references, notes, and appendixes—and must adhere to the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th ed.). The first page should include the title, name(s), and affiliation(s) of author(s) and full contact addresses for correspondence (including e-mail). The second page should include the title (but no author identification), an abstract of not more that 150 words, a list of up to 6 key words, and a word count. Use either American or British spelling consistently within an article. Manuscripts must be single-sided, typed on 8½" x 11" or A4 paper and should not exceed 8,000 words in length (including references, notes, and tables). Minimize the number of notes. Direct quotation in another original language should be followed immediately by the English translation. That said, we will consider innovative alternative formats if appropriate and well-executed.
Tables and figures should be placed after the references, each labeled and on a separate page. Placement of each table and figure in manuscript should be marked. Figures in manuscripts accepted for publication must be submitted in camera-ready form. A list of acceptable file formats will be provided.
Perspectives. Submissions in this category involve well-developed scholarly reflections on a key issue in the field. Possible topics include current issues in the field affecting research (methodology), theory, policy, educational administration, or curriculum and pedagogy. This category of submission also includes critical reflections on a previously published article in the journal; in this case, the author of the original article will be invited to respond in 1,000 words. Critical reflection pieces should follow the submission guidelines and should be no longer than 3,000 words.
Only original work not previously published and not currently under review elsewhere will be considered. Contributions should be in English and will be reviewed anonymously.
Reviews. Please contact the editors to inquire about serving as a reviewer. Unsolicited reviews will not be accepted. Reviews should be between 500 and 1,000 words. The title page should include your name and affiliation, as well as the name of reviewed book and its author(s), publisher, number of pages, and ISBN# if available. For all types of submissions, please send one electronic version (Word Document) to each editor and three (3) additional copies to either editor.
