AzSCA Journal

Call for Manuscripts

The journal from AzSCA, Inc. (School Counseling Research and Practice) invites the submission of manuscripts for consideration for the next online publication.

Manuscripts on issues of interest to practicing K-12 school counselors and counselor educators are welcome. Topics of interest would include college and career readiness, crisis intervention, counseling support groups, empirical research, action research, innovations in school counseling practice, current trends and professional, legal and ethical issues. This issue will focus on promising programs for K-12 students. We are seeking both submissions about completed promising and beneficial school-based practices or contemporary issues for school counselors, program-related projects, data collection, analysis and your process of determining how to proceed, i.e., what were the roadblocks and successes along the way. Your topic should be clearly connected to the ASCA Model in your manuscript. We are also seeking reviews of current books or other resources of interest to school counselors. The book and resource reviews should include practical implications for school counselors. We encourage counselor educators and their students to submit joint articles.

Manuscripts should not exceed 16 double-spaced typewritten pages, not including title page and references. The manuscripts should also be written according to the American Psychological Association (APA) Publication Manual (7th edition) style. Include on a separate page, the title of the article and an abstract of no more than 150 words. Submissions will be reviewed anonymously. Please be sure that authors names do not appear anywhere in the manuscript other than the title page. Use APA guidelines to eliminate biased language. Manuscripts must be sent electronically as e-mail attachment to editor Dr. Cindy Ruich at

Anyone who has experience as a school counselor or has published in professional journals, books, or has contributed chapters in books and would like to serve on the editorial board should apply to the editor by by e-mail at
