AbstractThree journals were dedicated to publishing scholarly and professional papers in the field of educational technology and teacher education at the beginning of the year 2000: * Journal of Computers in Teacher Education (JCTE).* Journal of Information Technology for Teacher Education (JITTE).* Journal of Technology and Teacher Education (JTATE). These three journals, plus the proceedings of the annual meeting of the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education, constitute the primary publication outlets for work in the area of technology and teacher education. Many other journals, of course, publish papers on the topic, but these four publications are the only ones dedicated solely to the topic of technology and teacher education. Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education ( CITE Journal ) is an online journal that will serve as an electronic counterpart to the Journal of Technology and Teacher Education . The CITE Journal will complement rather than replace the Journal of Technology and Teacher Education . The rationale for an online journal is governed by three factors: demand, format, and participants.
