Focus and Scope
JOTSE is an international Journal aiming at publishing interdisciplinary research within the university education framework and it is especially focused on the fields of Technology and Science. JOTSE serves as an international forum of reference for Engineering education.
Teaching innovation oriented, the journal will be issued twice per year (every 6 months) and will include original works, research and projects dealing with the new learning methodologies and new learning supporting tools related to the wide range of disciplines the Engineering studies and profession involve.
In addition, JOTSE will also issue special numbers on more technological themes from the different areas of general interest in the industrial world, which may be used as practical cases in classroom tuition and practice. Thereby, getting the working world reality closer to the learning at University.
Among other areas of interest, our Journal will be focused on:
2. General Science (Physics, Chemistry, Maths,…)
4. Electricity and Electronics
5. Industrial Computing (Digital, Analogic, Robotics, Ergonomics)
6. Aerospatial (aircraft design and building, engines, materials)
7. Automotive (automotive materials, automobile emissions)
JOTSE select the articles to be published with a double bind, peer review system, following the practices of good scholarly journals.
JOTSE is published semiannually exclusively on-line, and following an open access policy. On-line publication allows to reduce publishing costs, and to make more agile the process of reviewing and edition. Jotse defends that open access publishing fosters the advance of scientific knowledge, making it available to everyone. JOTSE publishes articles in English only.
|Open Submissions||Indexed||Peer Reviewed|
These may be on any topic relevant to engineering education in higher education and may take the form of pedagogic research papers, case studies, critical reviews and evaluations; they may describe investigations of new methods and the results of action research; they may consider policy matters and the changing context of engineering education.

Peer Review Process
JOTSE selects its articles following a double blind, peer review process. Once the editorial team has checked that the contribution follows the formatting and content author guidelines, it is sent to two external anonymous reviewers (the reviewers can not belong to the same institutions as the author/s) with expertise in the contribution's field. Grounded on reviewer's recommendations, the editor will communicate the results of the evaluation to the corresponding author. The editor will communicate the overall result of the evaluation (rejected, accepted or accepted with modifications), including the reviewer's comments. If the article has been accepted with modifications, authors should send back to the journal a new version of the article, that will be reviewed again by the same team of reviewers. If authors wish, they can attach a letter to the editor, which should indicate the modifications made in the article following the editor's and reviewer's comments. If the authors decide not to follow a particular reviewer's instruction, they can expose in the same letter their reasons for not doing so.

JOTSE is published twice a year (March and September). The two issues of one year are the two numbers of one volumen. Occasionally, JOTSE can publish special issues about specific research themes. These special issues can have specific editors. For these special issues, specific calls for papers will be announced.
