Request for Proposals: Editorship of the Journal of Teacher Education
The AACTE Committee on Research and Dissemination invites proposals for a campus-based team to edit the Journal of Teacher Education (JTE) for a 3-year term, commencing with Volume 67, Issue 1 (January/February 2016). Proposals must be submitted online by November 7. Qualified individuals from schools, colleges, and departments of education at AACTE member institutions may apply.
Pennsylvania State University has served as editorial host of the journal since 2010, led by Stephanie Knight along with coeditors Gwendolyn Lloyd and Fran Arbaugh and supported by a team of associate editors as well as by Dean David Monk and others at Penn State. This team’s many contributions to the journal included instituting a formal board of reviewers, convening a group of senior advisers for guidance on research directions, and increasing international submissions, all while upholding the JTE’s longstanding reputation for excellence, balancing themed with open-topic issues, and staying on top of myriad deadlines and processes.
The JTE, in continuous publication since 1950, is the premier journal for teacher education, providing a vital forum for considering practice, policy, and research in the field. Published five times a year, the journal reaches a worldwide audience and is regularly cited in new research. Among 219 education and educational research journals, the JTE was ranked 17th in the Thomson Reuters 2014 Journal Citation Reports. The JTE is AACTE’s only journal, published in partnership with an editorial team based at a member institution and SAGE.
