The all-volunteer EDGJ staff is aware of the following more-than-a nuisance-than-anything observations and will be addressing:

1. The broken hyperlink titles (HTTP ERROR 500). For now, click on PDF to the far right of the respective article title.
2. That the sequence of articles in certain issues of the EDGJ is out of the standard sequence.

Thank you.

Ethical and Legal Standards


The EDGJ attempts to comply with the contemporary standards of ethical and legal principles when publishing issues of the Journal. To this end, we urge all EDGD and EDGJ stakeholders give special attention to ASEE’s policy of plagiarism and duplicate publication (see and pages 13-16 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and its guidance on duplicate and piecemeal publication of data and its guidance on plagiarism and self-plagiarism. This matter will continue to be included on the division’s annual and mid-year conference executive committee meeting agendas. RAC 20160519
