Instructions for authors

Author Guidelines

JETEN does not charge authors for article submission or processing. JETEN exclusively publishes papers presented in Thematic Interest Groups (TIGs) during the ETEN annual conference. 

Thematic Interest Groups leaders review the papers and select ones suitable for the journal and submit them to the editorial board for blind peer review by three referees per article.

The Thematic Interest Groups are:

  1. Arts Education
  2. Creative StorytellingMyths, Fairytales and other Narratives
  3. Education Technology
  4. Identity & Diversity
  5. Language Education
  6. Internationalisation
  7. Mathematics Education
  8. Movement Activities, Play, Health and Outdoor Learning
  9. Reflective Learning and Teaching for Thinking
  10. Special Education Needs
  11. Student-Teacher Transition
  12. Teaching and Learning Science & Technology
  13. Urban Education

The papers for submission to JETEN must be sent to the editors before the September 30, about twenty weeks after the annual conference.

Three members of the JETEN review panel blind review these papers. Authors of the papers selected for publication receive editorial comments for revisions during the first week of January and must turn in the final version before the last day of February. The final revised papers should be 3000 to 5000 words in length, including a 100 word abstract. The most current APA style should be used for referencing procedures. Below are listed some of the guidelines for formatting the article.

Auto formatting
Papers should NOT be submitted using any kind of auto formatting.

Page setup
Top and bottom margins 2.5cm
Left and right margins 3.0cm
A4, portrait
Times New Roman, font size 12
Single spacing between lines
Single spacing between words

Title: Times New Roman, font 18, bold, centered
Authors and affiliation: authors’ names on the second line, not titles or qualifications, Times New Roman, font 12, Institutional affiliation on the third line, city and country on the fourth line.

Abstract: Times New Roman, font 12, bold, starting on the extreme left without indentation, following the abstract text on the next line, adjusted to the left, using Times New Roman, font 12, regular.

Key words: Times New Roman, font 12, italic, maximum 5 words using same font, but regular.

Use headings throughout the paper. Headings are in bold, font 12. Only the first letter of a heading is in upper case, all other letters in lower case except where the word is a proper noun (name), or the first letter following a colon. If there are sub-headings, then use bold and italics together.

Each paragraph starts on the extreme left of the page, there is no indentation. There is a blank line between paragraphs to indicate the start of a new paragraph to the reader. At the end of the last paragraph there are two blank lines before the next heading, but only a single blank line if it is a sub-heading.

Tables and figures
Tables are to be kept to a minimum, adjusted to the center within the page, and single spaced. Tables are to be labeled at the top, for example …

Table 1.

Generalization strategies applied to visual patterns.

All picture based material is to be kept to a minimum, and will be reproduced as they are. Such figures are to be labeled at the bottom, for example:

Figure 1. The instructional triangle (adapted from Lampert & Ghousseini, 2012; & Sträβer, 1994).

References Times New Roman, font 12, starting on extreme left. The references should use font 11, for example:
