The Standard Celeration Society publishes the Journal of Precision Teaching and Celeration (JPTC) once a year. JPTC provides a forum for research, practical applications and discussions of Precision Teaching and Celeration technology. JPTC has dedicated itself to the promotion and diffusion of Precision Teaching and Standard Celeration technologies.
Authors may submit their original contributions to one of five sections of JPTC:
I. Application Articles: “Application articles” require:
(1) Use of Standard Celeration Charts;
(2) Use of basic charting conventions;
(See the JPTC guidelines for guidance on the “basic charting conventions”);
(3) Description of variables or procedures supporting the interpretation of the data.
“Application articles” usually represent data from applied settings such as schools, clinics, human service agencies.
II. Research Articles: “Research articles” require:
(1) The use of Standard Celeration Charts;
(2) Descriptions of the collection and analysis of data;
(3) Use of basic and advanced charting conventions and analysis;
(See the JPTC guidelines for guidance on the “basic” and “advanced” charting conventions and analysis);
(4) Description of variables or procedures supporting the interpretation of the data;
(5) Control for extraneous variables or report of their influence.
III. Discussion Articles: “Discussion articles” offer explanations, reviews, and extensions of Precision Teaching and Standard Celeration concepts.
IV. Chart Shares: “Chart shares” contain data displayed on Standard Celeration Charts along with brief descriptions of the performer, what occurred, and other relevant observations. [Note: We encourage performers (e.g. students, clients, patients) to submit their own charts to the chart share section.]
V. Technical Notes: Brief technical descriptions clarifying, elaborating, or reporting upon Precision Teaching and Standard Celeration concepts.
