AIMS & SCOPE of the Journal
Every issue of this truly interdisciplinary, rigorously refereed Journal contains a wealth of information: articles of value and interest to you, the educator, researcher, scientist.
Designed to convey the latest in research reports and critical analyses to both theorists and practitioners, the Journal addresses four primary areas of concern:
- The outcome effects of educational computing applications, featuring findings from a variety of disciplinary perspectives which include the social, behavioral, and physical sciences;
- The design and development of innovative computer hardware and software for use in educational environments;
- The interpretation and implications of research in educational computing fields;
- The theoretical and historical foundations of computer-based education.
The term “education” is viewed in its broadest sense by the Journal’s editors. The use of computer-based technologies at all levels of the formal education system, business and industry, home-schooling, lifelong learning and unintentional learning environments, are examined.
The wide variety of areas that the Journal explores is reflected in its distinguished Editorial Board, which includes prominent educational researchers, social and behavioral scientists, and computer and information experts.
This single Journal provides an international forum for interdisciplinary communication on an increasingly significant subject: research into the applications, effects, and implications of computer-based education.
