EASNA Research Notes

The Knowledge Transfer and Research (KTR) Committee publishes EASNA Research Notes addressing topics of current interest in the behavioral healthcare field.

Submitting Articles for the Notes

KTR accepts articles from members and nonmembers related to best-practice, cutting-edge research, and innovation that can be shared throughout the EAP field and beyond. Consider submitting if:

  • you are looking for a quick and easy way to share your work with a large EAP audience; or,
  • you recently published research in a peer-reviewed journal and want to be sure the rest of the EAP field knows about your primary findings and where to read the results of your full study; or
  • you submitted an abstract to the EASNA Institute or another national conference, were not selected as a presenter, but still want to share your research with the EAP field.

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.
