Volume 4, Number 1
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, theory, or practice. In addition, the
Journal publishes book reviews, editorials, guest articles,
comprehensive literature reviews, and reactions to
previously published articles.
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 "in house" which generally takes
about two weeks.
