NACTA Journal Resumes Submissions, Unveils New Manuscript Platform

The NACTA Journal is excited to announce the launch of their new manuscript handling platform, Open Journal Systems, which is now active and accepting new manuscripts for publication consideration. As part of this unveiling of new and updated NACTA Journal processes, the Editorial Board has put together a guide for best practices for authors from the first draft to publication. 

NACTA Journal Style
All papers submitted to the NACTA Journal will now be required to follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Seventh Edition. To help prepare your manuscript for submission, we have created a new guideline for authors that includes quick references and best practices that can be used. Please review that document here before submitting your manuscript.

Setting Up Your Manuscript in Word
This video walks you step-by-step through setting up a Word document in APA 7th edition format.

Getting Started in OJS

Submitting a Manuscript
When you are ready to submit your manuscript to the NACTA Journal, visit The NACTA Journal presents papers on all aspects of teaching, including methods, problems, philosophy and rewards. The Journal offers something for every teacher in agriculture or a related discipline. Whether traditional classroom or extension-related, its primary purpose is to strengthen professional competence in college and adult teaching.

Manuscripts that have previously been submitted through the FastTrack system and are currently in the review or revision process will continue to be handled through FastTrack until December 15, 2021. We are working diligently to get these papers through the final steps and to publication as quickly as possible.
