          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.
          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 "in house" which generally takes
          about two weeks.
