The Journal of Transformative Education (JTED) is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal focused on advancing the understanding, practice, and experience of transformative education. Transformative education is defined as those educational practices that are informed by transformative learning theory and that foster deep engagement with and reflection on our taken-for-granted ways of viewing the world, resulting in fundamental shifts in how we see and understand ourselves and our relationship with the world.
The Journal of Transformative Education invites researchers from a wide array of disciplines whose work reflects this overall aim and scope to submit original research, reviews and topical dialogue and communication on all aspects of transformative education and learning. These disciplines include but are not limited to:
- Adult education and lifelong learning
- Change, transition, and transformation
- Management and corporate education
- Educational and humanistic psychology
- Experiential education
- Holistic education
- Organizational development, learning, and psychology
- Social change
JTED is particularly interested in articles that seek to test, build on, and elaborate existing theoretical perspectives on transformative learning, that demonstrate innovate and creative applications of the theory in practice contexts, and that explore the international and cross-cultural issues of the theory and practice of transformative learning.
The journal seeks to deliver high academic quality in an engaging, thought-provoking, participative, and reflexive scholarly discourse across the spectrum of issues which transformational education encompasses, including
- Individual experience
- Educational and institutional process
- Formal and informal purposes
- Venues for transformative education
- Cultural issues
- Social context
The journal is global in scope and content and is diverse in its approaches and topics - drawing from theory, research, practice, individual experience, and retrospective insight from past major theorists.

The title page should contain:
- Manuscript title;
- Full names, institutional affiliations and positions of authors;
- Complete contact information for all authors including phone, fax, e-mail, and mailing address;
- Acknowledgement of formal contributions to the work by others, if any; and
- Statement of place and date of any previous oral presentation of the paper.
The first page of text should include an abstract of no more than 150 words. The names of the authors should only appear on the title page.
Style must follow American Psychological Association (APA) (6th Edition) guidelines. All submission must be double spaced and use 1 inch margins on all sides of the document. The reference page should be double spaced with a hanging indent for the second line of the reference.
Please consider viewing the Purdue Owl’s website regarding APA. It is a great resource for all things APA. They can be found at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/.
Letters to the Editor: Journal of Transformative Education encourages dialogue and communication on the subject of transformative education. Please e-mail the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors who would like to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider using the services of a professional English-language editing company. We highlight some of these companies at http://www.sagepub.com/journalgateway/engLang.htm.
Please be aware that SAGE has no affiliation with these companies and makes no endorsement of them. An author's use of these services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and the particular company, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.
IIf you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to nonsubscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self author archiving deposits (green open access) visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.
As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.
The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.
For more information, please refer to the SAGE Manuscript Submission Guidelines.
