These days, I am back in Tucson and it is around 100F here; however, thanks to monsoon, heat becomes more tolerable, if not humid, though.
Of course, after a considerable length of time of not being able to post on my blog, I will not be allocating all of my post to weather and my summer holiday back in Turkey; instead, I would like to introduce a very tech-friendly journal supported by the University Libraries at the University of Arizona. I thought it would be a good idea to briefly mention this new journal since I know there are a lot of students and researchers at every level out there who wish to publish their research and spread their word.
Issues and Trends in Educational Technology is a peer-reviewed open access journal that covers the theory, design, development and assessment of educational technology. It is supported by the University Libraries and uses the Open Journal Systems platform.
Issues and Trends in Educational Technology(ITET) covers design, development, use and assessment of educational technology in innovative ways, and features articles about research and theory as well as book, serious game and article reviews. The journal takes full advantage of its nature as an online publication, and authors are encouraged to submit material that would be unsuited for traditional print publication, such as video, high-resolution color images, software, and interactive data visualizations.
What I like most about this journal and what makes it more tech-friendly in addition to the things above is the fact that ITET publishes articles as they are ready, twice a year. That means there is no need to wait for a specific day for the journal to come out in print or to be published online, which makes it really flexible.
One of the missions of ITET is to provide access to exemplary graduate student work. We highly encourage submission of distinguished student papers (course projects, papers written as part of a graduate coursework, grants, etc.). Graduate student work is presented in a separate section of the journal, with a distinct and clearly-articulated review process.
Then, if you are a student or a researcher who is looking for a peer-reviewed journal that covers design, development, use and assessment of educational technology in innovative ways, and features articles about research and theory as well as book, serious game and article reviews, I am sure ITET must be the right place for you. You can still visit ITET’s website or write to the editors for further information.
