BITS AND PIECES
The Journal of Industrial Teacher Education (JITE) is issued four times annually by the National Association of Industrial and Technical Teacher Education (NAITTE). Published manuscripts are high-quality guest articles, refereed articles, "At Issue" essays, "Comments," reviews of books/media and computer hardware and software in an "Under Review" section, and special feature issues that report scholarly inquiry and commentary broadly related to industrial and technical teacher education, military training, and industrial training.Submission
All manuscripts submitted for publication must be accompanied by a cover letter that specifies the section of the Journal for which the manuscript is intended and an abstract that describes the essence of the manuscript in 150 words or less. Manuscripts must conform to guidelines provided in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2001, 5th ed.) except as mentioned here. Figures and line drawings must be submitted in camera-ready form. If possible, place figures, line drawings, and tables where desired in the text instead of using the APA's "place table here" place holder.
Manuscripts should be submitted on a 3.5" microcomputer diskette and in letter-quality hard copy form. Please be sure to provide six (6) hard copies for refereed manuscripts and three (3) hard copies for "At Issue," and "Comments" articles. The preferred format is Microsoft Word for Windows or Macintosh. It is also helpful to include a copy saved in "text" format. The name of the word processing program used must be indicated in the cover letter. Please label the disk with the author names, manuscript title, and date of submission. The files on the disk should be clearly named.
The submission procedures are intended to facilitate editing and producing the Journal. They should not be interpreted as precluding authors without microcomputer capabilities from submitting manuscripts for publication consideration. Authors unable to meet word processing specifications should contact the Editor.Editing
