Prospective Author Submissions
How to Submit Work for Publication
Insight Assessment welcomes submissions of tests, inventories, books, rubrics, or other works for publication. Authors who own the legal rights to materials, or who have copyright clearances, are invited to submit proposals and materials for publication.
We will not knowingly publish tests, books, or other materials which we are invalid, unreliable, or infringements on the copyrights of others; nonetheless, authors are solely responsible for the originality, validity, reliability of tests proposed for publication.
We encourage submissions with any of the following foci:
- critical thinking,
- individual or group reasoning,
- higher order thinking,
- reasoning processes,
- leadership decision making,
- attitudes toward good decision-making,
- accurate problem-framing,
- successful problem-solving,
- clinical judgment,
- professional judgment,
- cognitive heuristics and reflective judgment, and related topics.
