JTMAE Publication Overview

The JTMAE publishes peer-refereed scholarly and research articles, along with non-refereed informational articles, that are of interest to Technology, Technology Management, and Applied Engineering students and professionals in both industry and academia. The full text of Journal articles published since December 2009 are indexed in the EBSCOhost research databases and the Elsevier - Scopus database. Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.

Article Categories 

Peer-Refereed articles fit into four broad categories:

1) Applied Papers,

2) Research Papers,

3) Pedagogical Papers

4) Perspective (Meta-Analysis) Papers (e.g., sound literature reviews to update the state-of-the-art).

Non-Refereed articles are usually non-research pieces of importance to the readership, or articles that have some research basis but do not meet the criteria for review as a peer-refereed article. Appropriate content for non-refereed articles include book reviews, opinion pieces and editorials, reports on development and implementation of new programs and curricula, accreditation and certification information, and other topics of interest covering Technology, Technology Management, and Applied Engineering topics.

JTMAE Submission Policies and Guidelines:

ATMAE Membership: At least one author of a paper submitted to the JTMAE for possible review and publication must be an ATMAE member or join ATMAE before the review process begins. Authors may confirm their membership status by accessing the Membership Section of the ATMAE Website or to join ATMAE. At the time a paper is submitted for publication, all authors must be ATMAE members or, in lieu of membership, authors may elect to pay a non-refundable $100 submission fee.

Is your paper topic a good fit for the JTMAE? Read the JTMAE Article Vetting Criteria to determine if you paper topic, style and content is a good match for review. You can also look at the JTMAE articles that have been posted, skimming them or searching the Keyword index for papers relating to the same topics. The JTMAE Review Criteria may also provide further guidance.

Preparing your paper: Read the Manuscript Guidelines and prepare your paper accordingly prior to submitting a paper. Papers that do not comply with submission requirements will be returned to the author.

Revising your paper: You must use the "Track Changes" feature in Word, so the Editorial Panel and Referees can easily understand how you addressed issues raised in the review process. Papers that do not comply with submission requirements will be returned to the author. Authors have 90 days to submit a revised article. Articles that are not revised and submitted within 6 months will be automatically withdrawn.

Electronic Submission: All JTMAE submissions for peer-refereed or non-refereed consideration, must be submitted through our cloud-based manuscript submission and peer-review platform. Author upload instructions are useful for navigating the online platform.

Review Process: The JTMAE uses a double-blind peer-review process for "peer-refereed" papers and each "peer-refereed" paper is submitted to three peer referees for comment and criticism. Before being sent to review, papers are vetted by the JTMAE Editorial Panel to determine if their topic and format fit the JTMAE and if they meet minimum content requirements for one of the four broad paper categories noted above. Most papers are returned to the author for revision after the first review and then go through a second review after the author makes revisions. The review process will usually take between four months and eight months to be completed; occasionally the process may take a full year. When published online as a JTMAE article, the cover page of each paper accepted through the peer-referee process indicates that the article was "peer-refereed."
