JTSE publishes peer-reviewed original empirical research. Research may employ a variety of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method approaches. Single and multi-institutional studies are encouraged, as well as innovative or provocative approaches to research or the way research is reported.
Research in Progress
JTSE welcomes submissions from early career faculty and graduate students, including masters and doctoral level, wishing to submit preliminary findings from original research. These articles provide research findings and implications for scholars, practitioners, and policy makers.
Practitioner & Theoretical Perspectives
This section offers a platform to discuss the translation of theory to practice. Both scholars and practitioners are welcome to submit thoughtful discussions of critical issues intersecting trauma and education. Through the synthesis of existing scholarship, we seek pieces that translate information into a format useful to educators and policy makers or reflections about successful ways in which research has informed practice. This section may also serve as an outlet for conceptual or theoertical perspectives on the topic of trauma in education.
These reviews place a book within the scholarly discourse, compare the book to other works in the field, and analyze the author's methodology, interpretations, and conclusions. Due to this amount of engagement with the book, reviews of academic titles may appear two or three years after publication of the book.
Periodically, JTSE will solicit guest editors for submissions proposing special issues centering a current topic relevant to the aims and scope of the journal. Guest editors may choose to directly commission papers from colleagues in the field or they may choose to put out a call for papers. Guest editors will work with the Associate Editor for Special Issues to ensure adherence to timelines, style guidelines, and journal scope.
