Journal of Teacher Education (JTE)

The Journal of Teacher Education (JTE), the official journal of AACTE, has been a leading voice in the field of teacher preparation for more than 65 years and is one of the most widely read professional journals in the field.

JTE is produced and published by SAGE Publications in association with AACTE.

AACTE selects faculty at a member institution to serve as journal editors. Currently, Michigan State University’s College of Education is the editorial host of the journal. Coeditors Dorinda Carter Andrews, Robert Floden, Gail Richmond, and Maria Teresa Tatto took over the editorship beginning with Volume 67, Issue 1 (January/February 2016).

JTE is issued five times per year: January/February, March/April, May/June, September/October, and November/December.

The average time from manuscript submission to first decision is 37 days. Overall, the review process can take 3 to 5 months.

Manuscripts that do not get accepted are often not centrally about teacher education, do not thoroughly explain their conceptual framework, are not grounded in the literature, or do not adequately present their methods of data collection or analysis.
