PDS Partners

Magazine of the National Association for
Professional Development Schools

The National Association for Professional Development Schools publishes PDS Partners, our association magazine, three times per year (Winter, Summer, and Fall). In addition to important news about the NAPDS and its conference, each issue will highlight PDS partnerships, projects, research, and “best practices” from around the United States (US) and beyond. In the spirit of PDS, the magazine will concentrate on articles co-authored by P-12 and college/university representatives. Each issue will also attempt to share stories and reports of PDS efforts from across the regions of the US, and from suburban, urban, and rural settings.

All articles are reviewed by the editor and assistant editor, as well as by the appropriate section editor team. Current sections of the magazine include “Interns and the Internship,” “PDS Partners and Partnerships,” “PDS Researchers and Research,” “PDS Inquiries and Ideas,” “Professional Development and PDS,” “PDS and Alternative Schools/Community Settings.” Authors are asked to identify at least one of the NAPDS “Nine Essentials” addressed by the information on which they are reporting. Article authors do not have to be NAPDS members, but members and school-/university-based teams of PDS constituents receive priority when publication decisions are made. Most articles are invited (the magazine is classified as an “editorial-reviewed” rather than “peer-reviewed” publication), and the editors acknowledge all article submissions via email. Authors receive letters of acknowledgement and complimentary copies of the magazine in which their articles appear. Submission of an article indicates that the authors have not submitted substantially similar reports to any other journal or publication.

Editors:

Eva Garin, Bowie State University
Drew Polly, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
