We are pleased you are interested in submitting content for publication in Montessori Life. Before you do, take time to read the Montessori Life Style Guide. It contains standards and criteria for photos and manuscripts that we request that you follow. For example—
- basic writing rules (citations, punctuation, abbreviations, etc.) from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
- photo requirements
The Style Guide also addresses time frame (from submission to publication), topics of particular interest to the editors, and other relevant information.
Montessori Life is a refereed publication. Feature stories are read by qualified reviewers from the Editorial Advisory Board and other qualified individuals chosen by the editors.
Style reference is the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition). The Style Guide, referenced above, summarizes the most basic of these items, and will be sufficient for most purposes.
The editors of Montessori Life prefer exclusive submissions. However, if you are presenting an article to several publications for consideration, please inform the editors upon submission.
E-mail your manuscripts to: Kathy Carey.
We are interested in photographs of children from around the world who are actively involved in work or play. Images of students using Montessori materials are especially welcome.
Read about photo requirements in the Montessori Life Style Guide.
Every photo submission must be accompanied by a photo release form, giving AMS permission to publish the photo in Montessori Life. If children are featured in a photo submission, AMS must receive a photo release form, signed by a parent or guardian, for each child pictured.
Photos may be sent either to accompany a manuscript or for general consideration, including for the cover.
E-mail your high-resolution photos to: Kathy Carey.
