Manuscripts should be original works not previously published nor concurrently submitted for publication to other journals. Manuscripts should be written clearly and concisely for a diverse audience, especially counseling professionals. The TCAJ target audience is counselors in all specialty areas, and we invite articles of interest for professionals in all areas of counseling. Topics appropriate for the Tennessee Counseling Association Journal include articles that: (a) integrate theory and practice; (b) discuss current issues; (c) provide research of interest to counselor sin all areas; and (d) present examples of creative techniques, innovations and exemplary practices.
Research reports describe original studies that have applied applications. Group designs, single-subject designs, quantitative, qualitative methods, mixed methods and other appropriate strategies are welcome. Research review articles provide qualitative and/or quantitative syntheses of published and unpublished research and other information that yields important perspectives about at-risk populations. Such articles should stress applied implications.
Manuscripts are to follow the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). Manuscripts are not to exceed 25 typed, double-spaced, consecutively numbered pages, including all cited references. Submitted manuscripts which do not follow APA referencing will be returned to the author without editorial review.
