Transformative Dialogues: Year in Review (2022) 

Each year, the Transformative Dialogues editorial team compiles an annual report.  The following items are highlight from the 2022 report. 

  • We received 44 submissions this year, which shows an upward trend. 
  • Our acceptance rate for primary articles is now 48% (down from 54%) 
  • We have significantly improved our time to first decision, moving from an average of 39 days (last 3 years) to 24 days (2022).
  • Over the past two calendar year (2021 and 2022), abstracts in the journal have been viewed 5083 times and full articles read 6335 times, the latter an average of 167 times per article. And that’s just on our website---it doesn’t count views through third party tools, such as ResearchGate or institutional repositories.
  • Congratulations to the authors of our 4 most widely read articles in 2022:
    • Green, J. D., & Dillard, B. (2021). Scaffolding the scaffold: Creating graphic organizers to support your students’ learning. Transformative Dialogues: Teaching and Learning Journal14(2).
    • Grodziak, E. (2021). We belong: A collaborative reflection on first-year student engagement under COVID-19. Transformative Dialogues: Teaching and Learning Journal14(2).
    • Johnson, K. G., Jakopovic, P., Rech, J., & Hodge-Zickerman, A. (2021). Learning assistantships in college mathematics: Value for preservice teacher development. Transformative Dialogues: Teaching and Learning Journal14(2).
    • Mackenzie, L. (2021). The role of dialectical tensions in making sense of failures in teaching and learning. Transformative Dialogues: Teaching and Learning Journal14(1).

The move to our new home with Penn State libraries was a bit rocky, and we really appreciate all of your patience as we worked through some of the technical hiccups. The platform now seems very stable and we are looking forward to upgrading our look and feel in 2023.

Because of the new platform, we are now able to add DOIs to all articles published in the journal going forward.  We are also working on applying these retroactively, a process that will likely take us some time, but, rest assured, if you’ve published your work with us in the past, your work will get a DOI.

As always, we are grateful for your support of Transformative Dialogues
