Journal of Advanced Technological Education Embarking on New Pilot Program

Journal of Advanced Technological Education - Special Project: Engaging Community and Technical Colleges in Peer Reviewed Journal Publishing.

The Journal of Advanced Technological Education (J ATE) is embarking on a new pilot program: J ATE URE – to promote and advance technician training nationwide by building a community of peer-reviewed published authors from community and technical colleges.

J ATE Undergraduate Research Experience (J ATE URE) will bring together community college and technical education faculty-student teams to write and submit a publication based on their research or project, and create curricular materials that will support future students in doing the same. Teams will be supported with a stipend, training, monthly online meetings, and both peer and professional feedback and support of their publication preparation. Faculty involvement will be September 2023 – July 2024, and student involvement will be October 2023 – July 2024, with most of the program wrapping up at the end of May 2024. The involvement in June and July will be responding to reviewer comments, making revisions, and participating in program evaluation. 

Each J ATE URE Team Will be composed of:

One Faculty member who does undergraduate research or projects with community college or technical education students plus 1-3 Community College student research or project team members who would like to write an article on their work for J ATE. Participants must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents and students must be currently enrolled in a community college in the US or a US territory.

The J ATE URE application window has been extended until Tuesday, September 12, 2023.
