Each article had to go through two reviews and thorough editing before being included in the anthology.

A thorough process was implemented to select the articles of the anthology. Practicing school leaders, educators, experts, and professionals were asked to submit an abstract of their article to be included in the anthology.


The abstract was reviewed by at least two members of the Board of Advisors of ICSL. Authors of selected abstracts were asked to submit their complete article.


Each article received was again reviewed and evaluated on its relevance, usefulness, benefits to readers. The selected articles were then put through a rigorous editing cycle before being finalised for print.

We are extremely sure that each article in the anthology will add tremendous value to the readers.
