General Information

Dear Teacher Educators and Educational Scientists,

All authors should ensure that their submitted article is not published in any other journal or sent for publication to any other journal. JTEE-Journal of Teacher Education and Educators possesses all rights of articles accepted for publication. Articles are evaluated as online submissions sent to the e-mail address: jtee.editor@gmail.com.

Authors should submit two copies of the article, one of them the original copy with authors’ names, surnames, and address information and the other one for referees without any information about authors. Authors’ contact information must be given as a footnote at the end of the first page of the original copy.

Conformity of submitted articles to the general publishing rules of JTEE is evaluated by Editorial Board members. Articles which are considered unacceptable according to the general publishing rules of JTEE will be returned to the author without the assessment of the referees.

Articles submitted to the journal are subject to double blind peer review. If two refrees do not come to an agreement on an article, that article is sent to a third refree for evaluation. And if an article is sent to more than two refrees for evaluation, a consensus is needed. Referees are chosen from the members of the board of scholars or from the academic staff of universities. For an article to be published, the referees’ positive views are necessary.

Authors who have received recommendations for changes in their articles must make the necessary changes in accordance with the referees’ recommendations. Authors must indicate the changes in the form of a report, indicating page, paragraph and line. Authors also should indicate the unchanged parts with their reasons.

If the recommendations by the referees are not accepted, the author/s may withdraw the article. In such a case, the Editorial Board is also fully entitled to send the article back to the author or to send it to another referee. Communication between the author and the referee is made only by the Editorial Board. Unless indicated, the Editorial Board makes and continues contact with the first author.

After the referees’ recommendations have been made and the necessary changes have been indicated, the articles and the reports indicating the changes must be sent to the e-mail address: jtee.editor@gmail.com.

JTEE-Journal of Teacher Education and Educators publish only the articles prepared in accordance with the general publishing rules of the Journal and approved by the Editorial Board. If the article is published, the author/s will receive a copy of the issue free of charge.
