JCAEDE invites authors to submit articles related to computer-aided design education and computer-enhanced instruction in the environmental design disciplines.

Articles submitted to JCAEDE must not be under review by any other journal or conference proceedings. Previously published articles cannot be published by JCAEDE but exceptions may be made if permission is obtained and the editors believe the article is of sufficient merit.

Organization of Journal

JCAEDE has two main sections:

  • Research/Theory: Articles (2000-3000 words) with or without graphics.
  • Dialogue: Articles (500-2000 words) relating to tips, experiences with software or hardware in teaching and research.

Format/Manuscript Preparation

The format follows the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, fourth edition. The manuscript should be organized with a title page, abstract, text, and reference list. Headers are not necessary. Include the title page with author's names, addresses, and e-mail addresses. Headings should be provided as needed and also done according to APA format. A 100-120 word abstract should follow the title page.

In the text, cite by the surname and year of publication such as: "In a study ( Jones, 1995 ) of..." or "Jones ( 1995 ) studied..." The reference list should be alphabetized by author surname such as:

Jones , T. (1995). The use of CAD in design schools. Archives of Design , 2, 22-25.

See the APA manual for more examples of the format.

In the text, place the following note regarding location of figures or graphics with filename listed similar to APA style:
