The Journal of Technology and Teacher Education is one of the leading journals that publishes empirical and theoretical work at the intersection of technology and teacher education. JTATE traditionally has a very low acceptance rate (~6-9%), leading many potential authors to seek deeper insight on a more successful review process. Readers can learn a lot about a journal based on what is published; this editorial explores data from manuscripts that were published as well as those that were rejected. Results suggest rejected and accepted papers differ in their: a) scope; b) research depth; c) use of literature; d) inclusion of data; and, e) depth and breadth of discussion and implications. The editorial ends with a review of topics submitted in 2015 compared to current topics in technology and teacher education.
