Journal of Engineering Technology®

A Message from the Editor-in-Chief:

Thank you for visiting the website of the Journal of Engineering Technology (JET)®. JET is a refereed journal published semi-annually, in spring and fall, by the Engineering Technology Division (ETD) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and is indexed by the Engineering Index (EI) Compendex and the Science Citation Index (SCI). The journal was first published in 1984 and has since become one of the major publication venues of refereed scholarly works for engineering technology educators. The purpose of the Journal of Engineering Technology® is spelled out in the JET Editorial Policy document.

Potential authors should refer to the JET Editorial Policy, the Manuscript Guidelines, and the Style Guide on the “Information for Authors” page for submission requirements and style. Manuscripts should be submitted to the JET Manuscript Editor, Moin Uddin, for review in the following areas: accreditation, active learning, applied research, assessment, capstone projects, classroom activities, curriculum design, distance learning, industry partners, innovative pedagogy, laboratories, non-technical skills, and other topics related to engineering technology practice and education. For the latest call for manuscripts, please click here Spring 2019 Call for Manuscripts.

All JET manuscripts undergo double-blind peer review as well as an editorial board review. Potential manuscript reviewers should contact the Manuscript Editor, Moin Uddin, for more information on how to apply to become a peer reviewer.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PREDATORY JOURNALS

All researchers should familiarize themselves with the concept known as predatory journals.  This topic was the subject of an article published in ASEE’s February 2017 PRISM magazine which can be viewed at http://www.asee-prism.org/the-dark-side-of-open-access/.  In the past several years the Journal of Engineering Technology® has been the target of predatory journal web sites hijacking the official ISSN associated with JET.  All authors who wish to publish with JET should be aware that ISSN 0747-9964 is a high quality print journal which is circulated only to subscribers.  An on-line version of JET does require a separate ISSN. Websites claiming to be associated with ASEE and an on-line version of JET with ISSN 0747-9964 are not legitimate websites.
