About the Journal of Technology Education

Scope of the JTE

The Journal of Technology Education provides a forum for scholarly discussion on topics relating to technology education. Manuscripts should focus on technology education research, philosophy, and theory. In addition, the Journal publishes book reviews, editorials, guest articles, comprehensive literature reviews, and reactions to previously published articles.

Editorial/Review Process

Manuscripts that appear in the Articles section have been subjected to a blind review by three or more members of the Editorial Board. This process generally takes from six to eight weeks, at which time authors are promptly notified of the status of their manuscript. Book reviews, editorials, and reactions are reviewed by the Editor and Associate Editor, which generally takes about two weeks.

Manuscript Submission Guidelines

  1. Three copies of each manuscript and an electronic version (emailed as an email attachment or submitted on CD) should be submitted to: Chris Merrill, JTE Editor, Department of Technology, Illinois State University, 215 Turner Hall, Normal, Illinois 61790-5100. For questions, please telephone 309-438-7862.

  3. Manuscripts that are accepted for publication must be resubmitted (following any necessary revisions) as an email attachment or submitted on CD in the native word processor format, e.g. Microsoft Word.
  4. Manuscripts for articles should generally be 15-20 pages (22,000-36,000 characters in length, with 36,000 characters an absolute maximum). Book reviews, editorials, and reactions should be approximately four to eight manuscript pages (approx. 6,000-12,000 characters).
