A Message from the Editor-in-Chief:
Welcome to 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). The aim of JET is to provide a forum for the dissemination of original scholarly articles as well as review articles in all areas related to engineering technology education. The journal is indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded through Elsevier, the Applied Science & Technology Index through Ebscohost, Technology Collection through ProQuest and Ei Compendex and Engineering Village through Elsevier. The journal features a distinguished editorial board, which brings together a team of highly motivated and experienced researchers and educators. The diverse experience of the board members allows our editorial panel to lend their expertise to a broad spectrum of engineering technology subjects.
The Journal of Engineering Technology® invites authors to submit their original unpublished scholarly works in the following areas: accreditation, active learning, applied research, assessment, capstone projects, classroom activities, curriculum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. Before submitting a manuscript, potential authors should refer to the JET Editorial Policy, the Manuscript Guidelines, and the Style Guide on the “Information for Authors”. The manuscript must be written in a scholarly tone, have a research component, and have applications to engineering technology. Manuscripts should be submitted using the “Submit via Scholastica” portal for review. (See the right side menu of this page for the submit button.) For the latest call for manuscripts, please click Call for Manuscript.
All JET manuscripts undergo double-blind peer review as well as an editorial board review. I am dedicated to providing authors with a productive, fair, and timely review experience. Potential manuscript reviewers can sign-up by clicking this link to become a peer reviewer. Existing peer reviewers should refer to the JET Reviewer Guidelines on the “Information for Reviewers” page for manuscript review requirements.
My primary goal as editor-in-chief is to ensure that the Journal of Engineering Technology® remains flexible in attending to the rapidly shifting engineering technology landscape, while also maintaining and intensifying the high standards of quality and excellence for which the journal is known. I sincerely hope that engineering technology educators will eagerly access the Journal of Engineering Technology® as both submitters and readers. Please browse through the various sections of the JET website and do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

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. This is the only official website of JET. Please be aware that the website engtech.pl is a fake website of the predatory journal.
