Research Notes: Author Guidelines for 2019

The KTR Committee offers EASNA Research Notes to the EAP field.

The Knowledge, Transfer and Research (KTR) Committee is proud to offer the EASNA Research Notes (Notes) to the EAP field and its partners.  The Notes are a series of publications related to various EAP research topics. Published quarterly, the Notes address a variety of current topics in the workplace behavioral healthcare field.

Focus: The Notes highlight the findings of a new study or an extended literature review of an important topic of the day. The goal of the Notes is to encourage new authors to ask relevant questions and writing research articles related to issues arising in their business. The goal of the Notes program is to encourage the community of practitioners & researchers to raise pressing questions from practice to pursue conversations and insights.

These Notes have a unique place among EAP publications in that they provide a forum for nascent and developing research studies to be shared across the EAP field. The hope is that these Notes will provide opportunities for students, researchers, and practitioners to see emerging issues, test out alternative interventions, and provide contacts for those interested in the same issues.

Articles may address: any form of research, case data reports, studies in process, small pilot studies, literature reviews, implementation processes of a new measurement tool, program evaluations, quality improvement projects as well as other related and approved topics.

Submissions: EASNA’s KTR Committee invites submissions from those in the EAP and related behavioral health fields. Submissions must be succinct, 4,000 to 6,000 words in length, and follow the traditional research model for writing articles.  Articles should identify the issue studied, the findings or preliminary results, and the applicability to the EAP counselor/practitioner, managers of EAP programs, EAP vendors, and/or the EAP user.

Submissions and inquiries should be emailed to Nicole Stelter – KTR Chair: email hidden; JavaScript is required or Patricia Herlihy email hidden; JavaScript is required.
