AMTE Connections Submission Guidelines

Connections is published four times a year: fall, winter, spring, and summer. The Editorial Panel will consider a wide variety of types of submissions, including essays addressing questions related to theory and practice, descriptions of innovative pedagogical approaches in courses, programs, and professional development, reviews of resources for mathematics teacher educators, evidence-based reflections on issues in mathematics teacher education, research summaries, and news articles related to mathematics teacher education. Each submission is reviewed by the Editorial Panel for relevance to the AMTE membership and for quality of work. Authors should be mindful that significance for mathematics teacher educators and their work is readily apparent in the manuscript. Authors should pay attention to quality of academic writing, such as organization and flow of reasoning, and to clarity related to usefulness, such as recommendations and implications for mathematics teacher educators. Please direct all comments and questions to the Connections editor Matt Chedister at

Manuscript submissions should support AMTE’s mission statement and goals, be no longer than 6 pages (double-spaced, 12-point font Times) of text or 1,400 words (including references and figures/tables), contain no author information, and sent electronically as a Word File to the Connections editor Matt Chedister ( for a review by at least two members of the Connections Editorial Panel.

For ease of reading by reviewers, all figures and tables should be embedded in the correct locations in the text. All manuscripts should be formatted according to the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition). Allow at least 6 weeks for review of submitted manuscripts.
