About the Journal

Issues in Teacher Education (ITE) is a peer-reviewed journal published twice yearly by the California Council on Teacher Education (CCTE). The journal publishes original manuscripts focusing on topics, concerns, and methodologies for improving the quality of teacher education, broadly conceived to include pre-service preparation, the induction years, and the professional development of career teachers. The journal welcomes submissions in a variety of genres, 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. Submissions should be between 5000-7000 words (exclusive of references, tables, and figures).   

Manuscripts should follow the style outlined in the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and should be submitted as Microsoft Word documents. Submitted files should: be “blind” (all identifying information removed, including in Word’s “properties”); have "track changes" turned off; use 12-point font; be unlocked; and not exceed 2 MB in size (including embedded graphics, if any). If your 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. Issues in Teacher Education will not consider manuscripts that do not meet these style or electronic file standards.
