Journal of Industrial Teacher Education


Information for Authors

The Journal of Industrial Teacher Education (JITE) is issued three 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 Requirements

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, 5 th ed.). Use the APA's "place table here" placeholder in the text for tables and figures and place tables and figures at the end of the manuscript.

Manuscripts may be submitted in electronic form as email attachments, as files on a CD, or on 3.5” disks. The preferred format is Microsoft Word “saved as Word 2003”, or earlier.

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.

General inquiries about editorial policies of the Journal, proposals for special feature issues, and recommendations for topics and authors for guest articles should be sent to the Editor. In addition, evaluative information about the JITE, such as comments from readers and authors that can be used to assist the editors in improving the Journal, as well as nominations for potential reviewers, should be forwarded to the Editor.

Manuscripts that do not meet submission requirements will be delayed in being reviewed since they will be returned outright to the author. Manuscripts must be the original work of the authors and not have been published, be awaiting publication, or be under publication consideration by another source.


The Journal of Industrial Teacher Education reserves the right to make editorial changes on all manuscripts to improve clarity, conform to style, correct grammar, and fit available space.
