Aims & Scope

The Journal of Teacher Development and Education (JTDED) aims to enhance and contribute knowledge related to education. JTDED publishes research papers, reviews, and argumentative essays on education.

It is expected that the papers published in (JTDED) will raise issues related to teacher education in various field areas; open up discussions related to those issues; suggest different methods of handling those issues or solving the related problems. It is also hoped that the studies published in JTDED will enhance the basis for timely discussions on the various areas of education, and give direction to educational research and practices. The paper accepted for (JTDED) DOI numbers assigned and will be published free of charge and with open access. JTDED is an international peer-reviewed journal published twice a year, in June and December. The peer-reviewing process, (JTDED) uses the double-blind review method for all studies sent for publication.

Once the paper is submitted to the journal system will be assessed for suitability by the editor, and then it will be double-blind peer-reviewed by independent, anonymous expert reviewers, each delivering at least one report about the paper. In order to ease the review process, the authors are required to prepare and then check that their manuscripts do not include identifying information. Authors are encouraged to use MS Word’s ‘Document Reviewing’ feature for this purpose.

Studies to be published in (JTDED) need to be carried out in teacher pre-service education, teachers’ professional development, and in any subject of educational studies. The research that will be submitted to (JTDED) should include the kind of methods and types:

  • Studies can be carried out in any form of quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method research.
  • Literature analyses, meta-analyses, meta-synthesis studies, book reviews will be considered for review and publication in JTDED.  
  • Even though JTDED’s priority is research papers, other kinds of papers are considered for publication. Attention is paid to the issue that the number or quantity of review papers should not exceed the number of research papers.
  • JTDED is published in the English language.
