The Journal of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (JTMAE) is ATMAE's on-line peer-refereed scholarly journal. It was published from 1984 through 2011 as the Journal of Industrial Technology, and was renamed the Journal of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering as of January 2012. The JTMAE publishes peer-refereed scholarly articles involving research and applications, along with non-refereed informational articles. Our audience is Technology, Technology Management, and Applied Engineering faculty, students and professionals in both industry and academia. The JTMAE uses an electronic submission and review process. See the links below for complete information for authors, referees and JTMAE personnel. The JTMAE continually posts new articles in an annual volume, with 4 issues in each volume, posted in January, April, July and October.

Find a JTMAE Article!:
- JTMAE Articles by Volume & Issue / Author Search - JTMAE articles listed chronologically beginning with the current Volume and Issue. Within each issue, titles are listed alphabetically by title. As links to the titles include author's names, you can also search for a specific author through this page.
- Search by Key Word - Topical keywords associated with individual articles. Each JTMAE article is identified by several of over 70 keywords. Scanning this list can help you find JTMAE articles in your field of interest.
The JTMAE publishes peer-refereed scholarly and research articles, along with non-refereed informational articles, that are of interest to Technology, Technology Management, and Applied Engineering students and professionals in both industry and academia. Peer-Refereed articles fit into four broad categories: 1) Applied Papers, 2) Research Papers, 3) Pedagogical Papers, and 4) Perspective (Meta-Analysis) Papers (e.g., sound literature reviews to update the state-of-the-art). Non-Refereed articles also cover Technology, Technology Management, and Applied Engineering topics; non-refereed articles are usually non-research pieces of importance to the readership, or articles that have some research basis but do not meet the criteria for review as a peer-refereed article. Appropriate content for non-refereed articles include book reviews, opinion pieces and editorials, reports on development and implementation of new programs and curricula, accreditation and certification information, and other topics of interest to the JTMAE audience.
For more information on appropriate content for peer-refereed and non-refereed articles, see the Submission and Review Process Information for Authors.

The Review Process, Manuscript Guidelines and Submission Guidelines
- ATMAE Membership: At least one author of a paper submitted to the JTMAE for possible review and publication must be an ATMAE member or join ATMAE before the review process begins. Authors may contact the ATMAE office at email@example.com to confirm ATMAE membership status. See the Membership section of the ATMAE Website for membership information and to join ATMAE or renew your membership. At the time a paper is accepted for publication, all authors must be ATMAE members or, in lieu of membership, authors may elect to pay an $100 publication fee.
- Is your paper topic a good fit for the JTMAE? Read the JTMAE Article Vetting Criteria - Expanded for Authors to determine if your paper's topic, style and content is a good match for review by the JTMAE. You can also look at the JTMAE articles that have been posted, skimming them or searching the Keyword index for papers relating to the same topics. The JTMAE Review Criteria may also provide further guidance.
- Preparing your paper: Read the JTMAE Manuscript Guidelines and prepare your paper accordingly prior to submitting a paper. Papers that do not comply with submission requirements will be returned to the author.
- Revising your paper: You must use the "Track Changes" feature in Word, so the Editorial Panel and Referees can easily understand how you addressed issues raised in the review process. Papers that do not comply with submission requirements will be returned to the author.
- Email submission: All submissions, either for peer-refereed or non-refereed consideration, must be submitted via email. You must follow the JTMAE Electronic Submission Guidelines to submit your paper to the JTMAE.
- Questions? Contact the JTMAE Administrator, Dave Monforton, at the ATMAE office for more information. You can reach the JTMAE Administrator by phone at (734) 677-0720.
The JTMAE uses a double-blind peer-review process for "peer-refereed" papers and each "peer-refereed" paper is submitted to three peer referees for comment and criticism. Before being sent to review, papers are vetted by the JTMAE Editorial Panel to determine if their topic and format fit the JTMAE and if they meet minimum content requirements for one of the four broad paper categories noted above. Most papers are returned to the author for revision after the first review and then go through a second review after the author makes revisions. The review process will usually take between four months and eight months to be completed; occasionally the process may take a full year. When published online as a JTMAE article, the cover page of each paper accepted through the peer-referee process indicates that the article was "peer-refereed."

The initial bylaws of the new Journal of Industrial Technology Board were approved by the NAIT Executive Board in November 2005 (NAIT was renamed ATMAE in 2009), the result of the efforts of the JIT Steering Committee appointed by NAIT's Executive Board in November 2003 to recommend changes to further professionalize and upgrade the JIT. The bylaws include a governing structure for an independent journal board, and sections dealing with an editorial panel, referees, topical guidelines, and information on the review process. The JIT Bylaws were revised in November 2010 for consistency with the transition to ATMAE, and again in November 2011 as the name of the journal was changed to The Journal of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (JTMAE).

Questions about the bylaws and governance of the JTMAE may be directed to Dr. William Brauer, Chair of the JTMAE Board.
