Teacher Education Quarterly

Teacher Education Quarterly is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to advancing knowledge and research on the work of teacher education researchers and practitioners.  We seek manuscripts that link research to practices, with an eye toward improving pre-service and in-service teacher education.  Preference is given to well-designed research studies that seek to advance knowledge in the field.
This system permits the editorial team to keep the submission and review process as efficient as possible.  Our user-friendly, online manuscript submission and review system also offers authors the option to track the review process of manuscripts in real time.  The welcome page provides information about the kinds of manuscripts we seek and the criteria we use in our review of manuscripts.

Teacher Education Quarterly has moved to an all-electronic submission process. Please see the Submission Guidelines tab above for further information. To submit a manuscript see the tab Submit Manuscript on the left. The site will guide authors through the electronic submission process. Once an author has submitted a manuscript, the Editor assigns readers, asking for an evaluation of how well the manuscript might fit in the journal with respect to the following criteria:
1. Significance of the work for teacher education;
2. Conceptual framework of the work and the literature reviewed
3. The appropriateness and thoroughness of the methodology - research questions and description of the data
collection and analysis;
4. Findings and conclusions, with connections to the relevant literature
5. Clear writing appropriate for a wide audience, following Teacher Education Quarterly guidelines
Among the topics well-suited for the Teacher Education Quarterly are:
* Preparation of teachers in a standards-based era
* Reform in teacher education
* Teacher education for meeting the needs of diverse ethnic and language populations
* Innovative approaches to teacher education
