Call for Papers

The Journal of Effective Teaching in Higher Education (JETHE), formerly called the Journal of Effective Teaching, is currently accepting submissions for future issues. JETHE is an open access electronic peer-reviewed journal that advances the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) focused on institutions of higher education. Theoretical explorations, evidence-based studies, and praxis submissions are welcome. Published twice a year, the journal seeks to foster the following:

  • Encourage critical conversations about SoTL from faculty members with international and/or interdisciplinary perspectives;
  • Contribute to conversations about differences in effective teaching practices among institutional contexts, including traditional and non-traditional learning environments (i.e., online/hybrid models; interdisciplinary programs; heterogeneous student populations);
  • Provide a forum for faculty and course instructors to reflect upon and share strategies, outcomes or projected outcomes, and recommendations resulting from their engagement with new, innovative, and/or revisioned teaching practices.

Two types of manuscripts are accepted for publication in the JETHE: articles and book reviews. Articles encourage critical conversations about SoTL, present research findings related to pedagogical studies, investigate relevant concepts or theories, and/or reflect upon and share strategies and recommendations related to innovative and revisioned teaching practices. These manuscripts are between 3,000 and 6,000 words in length, including the abstract and references, and typically follow the general format of a research article (introduction, review of literature, methods, results or findings, discussion grounded in literature, implications for practice, and references).

Book reviews are also accepted for publication. Manuscript length is limited to 750 words. Book reviews are generally solicited; however, publishers or review authors wishing to suggest a book for consideration, can email

Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process. Detailed information and instructions are located on the Submissions page.
