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:

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-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.
JTEE welcomes submissions from both experienced authors and those early in their article writing experience.

Articles submitted to JTEE are supposed be structured according to their being review or research articles.

Review articles are supposed to include ‘Introduction’, ‘Theoretical Framework/Contents’, ‘Conclusion’ and ‘References’ sections.

Research articles are supposed to include ‘Introduction’, ‘Method’, ‘Findings/Results’, ‘Discussion’, ‘Conclusion’ and ‘References’ sections.

In terms of style, please follow APA-6 format.

Each manuscript should contain:

Title Page: with full title and subtitle (if any). For the purposes of blind refereeing, the full name of each author with current affiliation and full address/phone/fax/email details should be supplied on a separate sheet. The title should be written in Bold Caps, centered using 14 point fonts.

Typing: All text, including title, headings, references, quotations, figure captions, and tables, must be typed in 12-point font and Times New Roman Style. The paper size must be A4 with 25mm margins. The text should be justified, and 1,5 spaced throughout.

Length: A manuscript, including all references, tables, and figures, should be between 6000-8000 words. Submissions exceeding this limit may not be accepted for review. Authors should include tables and figures at the end of the text, on separate pages.

Style: For writing and editorial style, authors must follow the guidelines in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA-6). Authors should number all text pages. Papers must be written in English or Turkish. Authors should aim at an international audience, using a clear style and avoiding jargon. They must therefore explain, in terms aimed at an international audience, points that might otherwise only be understood within their own education system. Acronyms, abbreviations and technical terms should be defined when they are first used. Do not indent at the start of a new paragraph; instead, leave one line between each paragraph, and at least two lines between each (sub) section and the text.

Abstract and Key words: all general and research manuscripts must include an abstract and a few keywords. Abstracts describing the essence of the manuscript must not exceed 150 words. Authors should select up to 5 key words.

Tables: Tables should be typed on separate pages and their positions indicated by a marginal note in the text. All tables should have short descriptive captions with footnotes and their source(s) typed below the tables.

Illustrations: all graphical images are termed ‘Figures’ and should be referred to as such in the manuscript. They should be numbered consecutively. Graphical images should be presented in a form suitable for immediate reproduction. Authors should include illustrations at the end of the text. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission from copyright holders for reproduction of any illustrations, tables, or lengthy quotations previously published elsewhere.

1. The reference list is arranged in alphabetical order of the authors’ last names.
2. If there is more than one work by the same author, order them by publication date – oldest to newest (therefore a 2004 publication would appear before a 2008 publication).
3. Use “&” instead of “and” when listing multiple authors of a source.
4. The first line of the reference list entry is left-hand justified, while all subsequent lines are consistently indented.
5. Italicise the title of the book, the title of the journal/serial and the title of the web document.
6. Do not create separate lists for each type of information source. Books, articles, web documents, brochures, etc. are all arranged alphabetically in one list.
