National and International Manuscript Submission

Issues in Teacher Education (ITE) welcomes submissions in a variety of genre, including empirical research, philosophical or theoretical investigations, reports by practitioners in various field settings that ground teacher preparation (e.g., descriptions of innovative practices/curriculum situated in the literature), and book reviews related to the theme. All submissions must be scholarly in nature and demonstrate substantive knowledge of teacher education as a field of study.

Manuscript Topics

The possible topics for this publication include the following: 

  • Critical Race Theory (including sub-groupings)
  • Technology Use and Access
  • Post-Pandemic Impact and Solutions
  • Diverse Teaching Lenses
  • Diverse Learners in PK-12 and Beyond
  • Ethnic Studies
  • Anti-Racism
  • Relevant teacher education topics

Review Procedures

Manuscripts are accepted and reviewed year-round, with two dates to be considered for the fall or spring publication. To submit a manuscript, please go to https://www.itejournal.org/ojs to begin the electronic submission process. ITE uses Open Journal System (OJS), a user-friendly online manuscript submission and review interface that allows authors to track the review process in real time. If you are a new user, click on “Register” in the upper right corner of the screen and follow the prompts to complete the registration process. You will receive a confirmation email with your username and password. Login to the website again and follow the steps for Author and/or Submissions. Additionally, please consider signing up to serve as a reviewer. A pool of responsive and active reviewers is crucial to maintain the rigor and quality of publications, as well as to the health and well-being of the journal as a whole.

Manuscript Preparation

Manuscripts should follow the style outlined in the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of American Psychological Association and should be submitted in Microsoft Word up to 7500 words in length. Submitted files should: be ‘blind” (all identifying information removed, including in Word’s “properties”); have “track changes” turned off; use 12-point font and Times New Roman format; be unlocked; and not exceed 2 MB in size (including embedded graphics, if any). If submission includes graphics, you may need to consult your institution’s electronic media department for assistance in re-sizing them to assure they do not make the Word document in which they are embedded too large. Graphics should be camera ready at the time they are embedded in the Word document, and if published, will be reproduced in the journal in black and white. ITE will not consider manuscripts that do not meet these style or electronic file standards. The complete journal submission guidelines can be found at www.itejournal.org.
