Clearinghouse: Prepare Resources for Submission

Introduction:

Contributors can enhance the repository of references by adding resources in the K- 12 online and blended learning fields. This process outlines how to include new resources to the Research Clearinghouse.

Details:

  1. First, search the Research Clearinghouse to ensure the resources you are requesting to add are not a duplicate to an existing entry. To assist your effort in monitoring what has and has not been submitted to the Clearinghouse, we recommend using keywords in your bibliographic software that helps you track such information.
  2. Next, confirm resources are relevant. Resources should be focused on K-12 online and blended learning or have strong implications for K-12 online and blended learning. The Clearinghouse is not a place for news reports or articles about the general nature of online learning. Its focus is on primary source documents such as dissertations, reports, white papers, journals, articles, book chapters, books, conference proceedings and legislation.
  3. Then make sure the references are as complete as possible. Please verify that the information is accurately entered following APA 6th Edition guidelines. Key fields that should be completed wherever possible for various reference types are included in the chart below.
  4. Finally, Generate the Output File.
