Advocate

Thank you for your interest in submitting to the Global Alliance for publication in The Behavioral Health Justice Advocate, an online resource for researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and advocates committed to advancing behavioral health and social justice.

Who we are: The Behavioral Health Justice Advocate is an online publication of the Global Alliance. The Global Alliance is dedicated to informing policy, practice and research to prevent behavioral health disorders and to promoting conditions to ensure that people with disorders can be full participants in society.  

What we do: Faculty Focus features innovative strategies, best practices, and fresh perspectives for creating a better learning environment. Brief and to the point, our emphasis is on the practical, rather than the theoretical. Yes, we’re interested in why a technique works, but we’re even more interested in how it works and how others can adapt and implement your strategies in their courses.

What we’re looking for: Our readers are always looking for new ideas, practices, and techniques to help them improve their instructional effectiveness and increase student learning. Please send us your best strategies regarding course design, active learning, class participation, assignments and activities, online teaching, diversity and inclusion, grading and feedback, teaching with technology, and other topics of interest to today’s college faculty. Articles should relate to one or more of the topic categories found in the right hand column of our homepage. Submissions should be approximately 850 words in length, not counting references.

Submissions should consist of no more than 25% theoretical information; the rest should be practical advice for teachers to use.
Due to the nature of online newsletters, authors are encouraged to adopt a more practical and informal tone than is expected in academic journals.
The best submissions come from regular Faculty Focus readers. Spend some time on the site, read what others have written, see what’s being shared in social media, and check out our annual lists of the top articles of the year. All of those things will improve your chances of acceptance because you will have a better feel for what resonates within the community.
Articles should not have been registered for copyright or published elsewhere (either on paper or electronically) prior to publication here.
Once you’ve written your article, please send it as a Word doc to Mary Bart, managing editor, email address mary.bart@facultyfocus.com. Please include a brief bio (not your entire CV) with your submission.

We look forward to receiving your submission.
