Online Learning (formerly JALN) promotes the development and dissemination of new knowledge at the intersection of pedagogy, emerging technology, policy, and practice in online and blended environments. The goal of the journal is to bridge theory and practice to advance this evolving field.
We invite high quality manuscripts for blind peer-review on a wide variety of topics including but not limited to those that investigate how online environments amplify, shape, and constrain teaching and learning. We welcome submissions that systematically investigate questions around online interaction, collaboration, individualized instruction, multimedia, adaptive environments, blended learning, issues of learning at scale (in both MOOCs and “traditional” online learning environments); emerging technologies; analysis of large data sets in understanding online educational processes; and effective approaches and interventions that promote online student engagement, persistence, improvement, and success. We also solicit cutting edge research on how new technologies and the practices they enable urge us to reconsider policy and practice in educational settings.
Occasionally, papers reviewing broad areas are published, including critical reviews of thematic areas. Papers useful to administrators are welcome. Online Learning is published 3-4 times a year, and entire issues are published from time-to-time around a single topic or disciplinary areas. Calls for papers for special issues include specific due dates, but general submissions are accepted year-round.
The journal adheres to traditional standards of double-blind peer review, and authors are encouraged to provide data in support of claims; currently the acceptance rate is approximately 25%.
The journal is guided by its editors and advisory panels. If you are interested in contributing as an author or reviewer, please see guidelines and information for authors, reviewers and researchers.
