Call for Papers

The Journal of Emerging Learning Design special issue: The Digital Humanities

Submissions due date

Due to multiple requests, we are extending the call for Conference Proposals and Journal Articles to December 12th.

Editors

Jerry Alan Fails (Boise State University) and AJ Kelton (Montclair State University)

Introduction

The Journal of Emerging Learning Design is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for its first Special Issue: The Digital Humanities.

With roots reaching back as far as 1940, the term Digital Humanities came into wide usage in late 2012 and has slowly risen in popularity since then. A Google Scholar search for “digital humanities” yields just under 30 results during the year 2000 and over 4,700 during 2015.  The increase in the number of published articles in 15 years is second only to the diversity of the research that is included.

About the ELDj

The Journal of Emerging Learning Design (ELDj) is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal that provides a platform for academics and practitioners to explore emerging learning design theories, concepts, and issues and their implications at national and international levels.

An outgrowth of the annual Emerging Learning Design Conference, which makes its home at Montclair State University (MSU), the ELDj invites scholarly communication in the emerging learning design field and will present best practices in design and implementation by offering articles that present, propose, or review engaging and dynamic approaches to pedagogy and how technology can better enhance it.

More details can be found at http://eldj.montclair.edu/about/

About the Special Issue

The ELDj has purposefully kept the focus of the theme for this special issue broad.  The intent is to continue to break down traditional academic silos and allow for an open dialogue and sharing with respect to what is considered the Digital Humanities.  ELDj is intentionally taking a broad consideration for what is included in the digital humanities with the clear understanding that this issue, and the articles within, will contribute to this growing field and provide a groundwork for further reflection and research.

Timeline

  • Deadline for Submission: December 12th, 2016
  • Notification of Acceptance: March 1st, 2017

Publication and Presentation

The issue will be published prior to, and featured at, the 7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELDc17) on June 2nd, 2017.

Based on when a submission is accepted, authors may be offered the opportunity to present their research at the 7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference in June, 2017.  Presentations must be given in an appropriate presentation format for the conference: panel (full conference audience), workshop (120 minutes), concurrent (45 minutes), or Sparks!

Submission Details

Manuscripts should be the appropriate length for the material being presented.

  • Briefs or Trends papers have a limit of 1000 words.

A description of each type of submission and guidelines can be found at http://eldj.montclair.edu/submission-guidelines/

ELDj uses a double-blind, peer-review process. Submissions should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication elsewhere.   Authors should review the above linked guidelines for important and relevant information.

 

Submissions should be sent to eldj@mail.montclair.edu: questions and information requests may be sent to the Editors at the same address.

 


Emerging Learning Design is looking for reviewers

The Journal of Emerging Learning Design (ELDj) and the 7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELDc17) are looking for reviews for articles and proposals, respectively.

  • The ELDj is currently collecting proceedings articles from the 6th Annual Emerging Learning Design conference, which took place on June 2 & 3.  Review of submissions will begin in early August.  The expected publication of the proceedings issue is January, 2017.
  • ELDj has also announced its first Special Issue.  A call for submissions will be going out shortly but the theme of ELDj’s first Special Issue will be Digital Humanities.  Submissions for this Special Issue will be due in late fall and the publication date will be June 2nd, 2017.
  • ELDc17 is looking for reviewers for session proposals for our Annual Conference, which will take place on June 1st and 2nd, 2017.  Details on theme and the call for submissions will be coming out later this summer.  Review will begin in late fall, 2016.
The review process is simple and straight-forward and takes place entire online.  The process is blind, so being a reviewer does not preclude submitting.
Reviewers are asked to consider a very limited number of submissions, in order to help reduce the work load and time commitment.  The only thing we ask in return is that reviewers agree to respond within approximately 2 weeks.
Those interested in reviewing for the ELDj, ELDc17, or both, are asked to complete this short online form.
If you have any questions on the review process for either ELDj or ELDc17, please do not hesitate to contact me at keltona@mail.montclair.edu
