Journal of Teacher Education and Educators (JTEE) presents articles focused on teacher education. The journal's primary aim is to reveal the discussions on teacher education and development, and to bright light on the policies about teacher education. Therefore, the journal intends to become an academic and international platform for discussing all aspects of teacher education, sharing the practices from all around the world about teacher education and development, and determining the actions to be taken to develop more qualified teachers. 

Journal of Teacher Education and Educators is fundamentally concerned with the improvement of teacher education, curriculum, policy, and in-service training. Besides these, the journal also accepts researches related to the problems of teacher educators and researchers in the field of educational sciences.

The Journal of Teacher Education and Educators particularly welcomes articles that explore alternative, critical and re-conceptualized views of teacher education; articles written for academics, educators, and practitioners that present the relationship between theory and practice explicitly.

Steps in the publishing process:

1 - Submission: Authors submit their manuscripts along with a separate title page as shown in author guidelines.

2 - Pre-review: The submissions are reviewed by the editorial board to understand whether they are (i) prepared according to the author guidelines, (ii) compatible with the JTEE's scope, (iii) qualified enough for potential publishing decision.

3 - With editor: The submissions meeting the criteria defined in Step 2 are forwarded to one of the editorial board members. The editor reviews the manuscript for ethical concerns, possible research and publication misconducts, reduntant publication and plagiarism. The editor ensures that the submission is reviewed by at least two scholars who are field experts with Ph.D. or Ed.D and have studied on the subject of the submission.

4 - In review: The editor assigns at least two suitably qualified reviewers for external review of the manuscript. The editor may assign another reviewer for statistical review where appropriate. The reviewers review the manuscript to ensure the rigorous standards of the scientific process and ask for revisions where needed. The reviewers may also comment on ethical questions and possible research and publication misconduct raised by submissions and originality of submissions, and to alert to redundant publication and plagiarism.

5 - After review: After the reviewers have completed their reports on the manuscript, the editor sends them to the authors in their entirety. The editor decides to revise, reject or accept the manuscript based on reviewers' comments.

6 - Revision: If the editor decides on minor/major revision based on reviewers' comments, the authors need to revise their manuscript accordingly. The authors need to submit their revised version of the manuscript, and files including explanations for the reviewers, which are prepared for each reviewer separately.

7 - Decision: The editor checks the revised version of the manuscript whether the authors have completed the necessary revisions, then sends it along with the explanation files to reviewers to learn if they have any concerns about the revised manuscript. The editor decides to reject or accept the manuscript by considering the reviewers' second reports. The editor may also ask the authors to revise the manuscript again.


Authors must follow APA-6 for citations:

  • Include an in-text citation when you refer to, summarize, paraphrase, or quote from another source.
  • For every in-text citation in your paper, there must be a corresponding entry in your reference list.
  • When citing in-text within an assignment, use the author/s (or editor/s) last name followed by the year of publication.
  • When using multiple authors' names as part of your narrative, rather than in parentheses, always spell out the word and. For multiple authors' names within a parenthetic citation, use &. For example, 'Hoy and Miskel (2013) stated that .......' or 'It is stated that ...... (Hoy & Miskel, 2013)'.
  • If a study has three (3), four (4) or five (5) authors, cite all authors the first time and from then on include only the last name of the first author followed by the words et al. (‘et al.’ is Latin for ‘and others’).
  • If a study has six (6) or more authors, cite only the last name of the first author followed by et al. each time you refer to this work.


  • The reference list is arranged in alphabetical order of the authors’ last names.
  • 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).
  • Use “&” instead of “and” when listing multiple authors of a source.
  • The first line of the reference list entry is left-hand justified, while all subsequent lines are consistently indented.
  • Italicize the title of the book, the title of the journal/serial and the title of the web document.
  • Do not create separate lists for each type of information source. Books, articles, web documents, brochures, etc. are all arranged alphabetically in one list.
  • When there are eight or more authors, include the first six authors’ names and then use ellipsis points (...) before concluding with the last author’s name.
