Corrections and Clarifications
Oklahoma Education Journal seeks to publish corrections and clarifications transparently and promptly after they are brought to our attention.
Reporters should relay potential corrections to the editor as soon as possible via the mode commonly used by said reporter and editor. Corrections will be made by the editor as transparently as possible.
Minor grammatical corrections that do not affect readability or meaning may be corrected without further notification to readers. Errors in headlines and errors in grammatical or factual usage that may cause confusion should be noted using the strikethrough method or through an editor’s note at the top of the story.
We are a very small team of writers who publish quickly and frequently (except during testing season). For this reason, you may see more typographical errors here than you might in a larger publication where several layers of editing are provided.
For this reason, we greatly appreciate our readers who specifically point out those errors via the comment section of our posts. We’ll make those corrections as soon as possible and update both the post and make note that changes have been made in the comments, as well.
Note: Please understand that when writers and editors publish copious amounts of copy in a short amount of time, a greater amount of errors will appear. To put it another way, there is an inverse relationship between the amount of time it takes one to publish an article and the number of mistakes that are likely to appear in said article.
For this reason, we heavily rely on our readers to be our eyes, ears, and editors. After all, as one of my former editors said:
“Writers are only as good as their editors.”
Readers, thank you very much for your help!
