JTE Editorial Board, Advisers, and Reviewers

In addition to the editorial team at Penn State University the Journal of Teacher Education is supported by hundreds of volunteers in the field. Oversight is provided by the AACTE Committee on Research and Dissemination, which serves as the journal's editorial board. Another group, called Senior Advisers, provides an annual sounding board for the editors on professional issues and trends in research, policy, and practice. Most important, the 60-member Editorial Review Board and hundreds of ad hoc peer reviewers enable the journal to publish dozens of top-quality manuscripts each year.
