CfP: EAI Endorsed Transactions on e-Learning

An announcement on this (continuous) call for papers launched by the European Alliance for Innovation – in short: open access publication, fast and high-quality review; rapid publication; innovative publishing tools; and decision-making really open to the community. The ”EAI Endorsed Transactions on e-Learning” journal is being submitted to ISI, Scopus, EI, DBLP, INSPEC, Google Scholar etc.

Scope

Education is one domain that has accompanied civilization through the centuries, adapting its tools to fulfill the expectations of the students and the needs of the teachers. Such tools can be as obvious and traditional as pencils and a notebook, or as complex and innovative as websites and multi-user virtual environments. Typical in-person learning environments, such as classrooms and meeting rooms, are at times not the best solution to enable and maximize a student’s ability to learn. Although they do fulfill their purpose of giving students the possibility of reaching course material and instructors, they also create a barrier that cannot be easily overcome.

Web-based instruction and multi-user virtual environments break the time-limited barrier innate to typical lectures and explore, through innovative technologies, a concept as old as humankind: socialization and the feeling of belonging to a community. Many universities, public institutions and private businesses are projecting themselves on the Internet and in virtual worlds to reach the customer at any time, giving them the idea of virtual presence that cannot be delivered through a simple website.

Topics to be discussed in this journal focus on (but not limited to) the following concepts:

  • Teaching / Educational Models and Frameworks
  • Accessibility and usability of web-based instruction in the classroom
  • Best Practices
  • Developing courses and content to be used in on-line educational environments
  • Student engagement
  • Experiments
  • Impacts of on-line on traditional teaching and learning strategies

Unique Advantages of Publishing with EAI/ICST

The authors will not be charged with any publication fees and all published papers in the journal will be Open Access under the terms of the Creative Commons with Attribution license.
EAI/ICST offers authors the revolutionary e-SCRIPTS system – a Web 2.0-based peer-review and manuscript management application that guarantees objective and fast reviewing, through an innovative reviewer bidding process that automatically matches the most qualified reviewer to the paper based on internationally recognized indicators such as H-index. Also based on that, acceptance decisions are expected to be now made in weeks instead of many months. In addition, EAI/ICST provides extremely short publication times by posting the paper on-line immediately after acceptance and extreme visibility/impact to the scientific community via synergies with the other EAI/ICST tools such as EU Digital Library and a broad abstract dissemination channel without compromises on the protection of authors’ intellectual property. All these innovative aspects are coupled with traditional elements of technical excellence, such as indexing by ISI, Scopus, EI, DBLP, INSPEC, Google Scholar, and all other major indexing organizations, as well as ISSN registration.
