Mission statement and clarification statement regarding the kinds of manuscripts JTE will not entertain.
The mission of the Journal of Teacher Education, the flagship journal of AACTE, is to serve as a research forum for a diverse group of scholars who are invested in the preparation and continued support of teachers and who can have a significant voice in discussions and decision-making around issues of teacher education. One of the fundamental goals of the journal is the use of evidence from rigorous investigation to identify and address the increasingly complex issues confronting teacher education at the national and global levels. These issues include but are not limited to preparing teachers to effectively address the needs of marginalized youth, their families and communities; program design and impact; selection, recruitment and retention of teachers from underrepresented groups; local and national policy; accountability; and routes to certification.
JTE does not publish book reviews, program evaluations or articles solely describing programs, program components, courses or personal experiences. In addition, JTE does not accept manuscripts that are solely about the development or validation of an instrument unless the use of that instrument yields data providing new insights into issues of relevance to teacher education (MSU, February 2016).

The mission of the Journal of Teacher Education, the flagship journal of AACTE, is to serve as a research forum for a diverse group of scholars who are invested in the preparation and continued support of teachers and who can have a significant voice in discussions and decision-making around issues of teacher education. These issues include but are not limited to preparing teachers to effectively address the needs of marginalized youth, their families and communities; program design and impact; selection,recruitment and retention of teachers from underrepresented groups; local and national policy; accountability; and routes to certification. The coeditors can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and at Journal of Teacher Education, 620 Farm Lane, Room 134, College of Education, MichiganState University, East Lansing, MI 48824-1034. E-mail is our preferred method of communication.
General articles and research manuscripts. All manuscripts must be submitted electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jteachered. This system will permit the editorial team to keep the submission and review process as efficient as possible. Our user-friendly, online manuscript submission and review system also offers authors the option to track the review process of manuscripts in real time.
Please note that JTE uses a blind review process; therefore, writers must exclude authors’ names, institutions, and clues to the authors’ identities that exist within the manuscript.
Manuscript Criteria. The fitness of a manuscript for publication in JTE is carefully reviewed based on each of the dimensions listed below.
- Significance/relevance to teacher education/teacher learning
- Conceptual framework (connections to relevant constructs in literature)
- Methods (if manuscript is an empirical study)
- Appropriateness to questions
- Adequate description of methods (including data collection and analysis)
- Rigor of methods
- Findings/conclusions are literature or data-based
- Overall contribution to the field
- Writing style/composition/clarity
JTE does not publish program evaluations, book reviews, or articles solely describing programs, program components, courses, or personal experiences. In addition, JTE does not accept manuscripts that are solely about the development or validation of an instrument unless the use of that instrument yields data providing new insights into issues of relevance to teacher education.
Typing. The acceptable format for electronic submission is MSWord. All text, including title, headings, references, quotations, figure captions, and tables, must be typed, double-spaced, with one-inch margins all around. Please use a 12-point font.
Length. A manuscript, including all references, tables, and figures, should not exceed 10,000 words. Submissions exceeding this limit may not be accepted for review. Authors should keep tables and figures to a minimum and include them at the end of the text.
Style. For writing and editorial style, authors must follow guidelines in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition, 2009). Authors should number all text pages.
Abstract and keywords. All general and research manuscripts must include an abstract and a few keywords. Abstracts describing the essence of the manuscript must be 150 words or less. Authors should select keywords from the menu on the manuscript submission system so that readers may search for the article after it is published.
Professional Editing Services. Authors seeking assistance with English language editing and/or translation should consider using the services offered by SAGE Language Services. Visit SAGE Language Services on our Journal Author Gateway for further information.
Notice to Authors of Joint Works (articles with more than one author). This journal uses a contributor agreement that requires just one author (the Corresponding Author) to sign on behalf of all authors. Please identify the Corresponding Author for your work when submitting your manuscript for review.
The Corresponding Author will be responsible for the following:
- ensuring that all authors are identified on the contributor agreement, and notifying the editorial office of any changes to the authorship.
- securing written permission (via letter or email) from each co-author to sign the contributor agreement on the co-author’s behalf.
- warranting and indemnifying the journal owner and publisher on behalf of all co-authors.
Although such instances are very rare, you should be aware that in the event a co-author has included content in his or her portion of the article that infringes the copyright of another or is otherwise in violation of any other warranty listed in the agreement, you will be the sole author indemnifying the publisher and the editor of the journal against such violation.
Please contact the editorial office if you have any questions or if you prefer to use a copyright agreement for all coauthors to sign.
For more information, please refer to the SAGE Manuscript Submission Guidelines.
