E-Learning and Digital Media is a peer-reviewed international journal directed towards the study and research of e-learning in its diverse aspects: pedagogical, curricular, sociological, economic, philosophical and political. A Policy statement is available.

This journal explores the ways that different disciplines and alternative approaches can shed light on the study of technically mediated education. Working at the intersection of theoretical psychology, sociology, history, politics and philosophy it poses new questions and offers new answers for research and practice related to digital technologies in education. The change of the title of the journal for 2010 from E-Learning to E-Learning and Digital Media is expressive of this new and emphatically interdisciplinary orientation, and also reflects the fact that technologically-mediated education needs to be located within the political economy and informational ecology of changing mediatic forms.

The journal publishes five kinds of submissions:

  1. quality academic articles (generally 6000-8000 words);
  2. national and international policy reports (unspecified length);
  3. policy research notes (2000 words maximum)
  4. reviews (1000 words maximum)
  5. interchanges (interviews, right of reply etc.)

Articles are:
only available online
 independently (anonymously) peer-reviewed
typeset in familiar printed journal format
published in conventional volume/number/pages sequence

E-Learning and Digital Media (ISSN 2042-7530) is an online-only journal published six times a year, those six issues constituting one volume. Articles are conventionally typeset and appear as familiar journal articles; proofs are sent to the authors as PDF files; the only real difference is that articles are only available for viewing online (and can then also be saved as files and printed).
