For over fifty years UCEA has offered the field high quality educational leadership cases studies. Building on a long tradition, in the mid-1990s the University Council for Education Administration (UCEA) established the first peer-reviewed journal of cases—the Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership (JCEL). JCEL, a journal published for UCEA by SAGE publications, is one of a kind. JCEL publishes, in electronic format, peer-reviewed cases appropriate for use in programs that prepare educational leaders.
JCEL publishes high quality, peer-reviewed, and class-room ready case studies for educational leaders at all career stages. The journal's editorial staff seeks a wide range of cases that embody relevant and timely presentations of issues germane to the preparation of educational leaders.
UCEA has issues a call for proposals to host the editorial functions of JCEL, beginning fall, 2013. The goal of the editorial team and the journal’s editorial board is to promote sound scholarship and a clear and continuing dialogue among scholars and practitioners from a broad spectrum of education. The editorial team’s responsibilities include refining the journal’s mission, soliciting articles, overseeing the peer review process, and editing submissions in a timely manner; managing an effective editorial board; and collaborating with the publisher to increase the journal’s visibility and readership.
