The Journal of Research on Technology in Education (JRTE) publishes articles that report on original research, project descriptions/evaluations, syntheses of the literature, assessments of the state of the art, and theoretical or conceptual positions that relate to the field of educational technology in teaching and learning.
JRTE uses the American Psychological Association’s Publication Manual (6th ed.) style guide. Please be aware that articles without appropriate style usage in text and references will be returned to the author without review. As commonly expected for journal research reports, we expect the manuscript to be organized into four sections: Introduction to the Problem (review of the literature, theoretical framework, and research questions), Methods, Results, and Discussion. (Download JRTE's Word template for guidance on APA style.)
Manuscripts submitted to JRTE must be between 4,000 and 8.000 words, inclusive of the title page, abstract (approximately 100 words), manuscript text, references, tables, and figures.
Please save all components of the manuscript in a single Word .doc or .docx file. Margins must be set at one inch on all sides.
If we deem your manuscript appropriate for the journal, we will send it to at least two members of the editorial review team for critical review, comment, and recommendation. We ask the reviewers to make a judgment concerning the quality and appropriateness of the manuscript for publication in JRTE. (See the review form they use.) On the basis of the reviewers’ recommendations, JRTE’s editor will decide to publish the manuscript as submitted, to publish the manuscript with suggested revisions, to request a significant revision and resubmission, or to reject the manuscript for publication. In all cases, the editor will notify the author of the decision, and in the event the manuscript is rejected, the editor will forward a summary of the reasons for that decision. We will make every attempt to complete the review process within two to four months following receipt of the manuscript.
To submit your article, please email a single .doc or .docx file (download JRTE's Word template) to Associate Editor Andra Brichacek at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first page should be a title page containing the title, author names, contributor information, and contact information for the corresponding author. The article should begin on the second page with the title and abstract. Please do not include any author information on any page but the first page (except in references and citations).
JRTE's acceptance rate is approximately 17%.
