The Journal of Educational Computing Research is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary scholarly journal that publishes the latest in research reports and critical analyses on educational computing for both theorists and practitioners. The Journal addresses four primary areas of research interests: 

  1. The outcome effects of educational computing applications, featuring findings from a variety of disciplinary perspectives which include the social, behavioral, physical, and computational sciences;
  2. The design, development, and effectiveness of innovative computer hardware and software for use in educational environments;
  3. The interpretation and implications of research in educational computing fields;
  4. The theoretical and historical foundations of computer-based education.

The terms "education" and "computing" are viewed broadly. “Education” refers to 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. “Computing” refers to all forms of computer applications and innovations - both hardware and software. For example, this could range from mobile and ubiquitous computing to immersive 3D simulations and games to computing-enhanced virtual learning environments. Each issue features articles useful for practitioners and theorists alike.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

The goal of this Journal is to provide an international scholarly publication forum for peer-reviewed interdisciplinary research into the applications, effects, and implications of computer-based education. The Journal features articles useful for practitioners and theorists alike.

    Originality: Only original articles are considered for publication. Submission of a manuscript represents certification on the part of the author(s) that neither the article submitted, nor a version of it has been published, or is being considered for publication elsewhere.

    Abstracts of 100 to 200 words are required to introduce each article.

    Format: Prepare manuscripts according to the latest Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. See: http://www.apastyle.org/

    You will be submitting two files through: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/joecr.

    (1) The Main Document file is a Microsoft Word file that contains the Abstract along with the manuscript text. The Main Document file also contains all of the figures and tables.

    (2) The Title Page file is a Microsoft Word file that contains the title, running head, author name(s) and complete contact information.

    During the submission process you will have an opportunity to submit other files, if any, containing any permissions that you gathered.

    Footnotes are placed at the bottom of page where referenced. They should be numbered with superior Arabic numbers without parentheses or brackets. Footnotes should be brief with an average length of three lines.

    Figures should be referenced in text and appear in numerical sequence starting with Figure 1. Line art must be original drawings in black ink proportionate to our page size, and suitable for photographing. Indicate top and bottom of figure where confusion may exist. Labeling should clearly identify all figures. Figures should be drawn on separate pages in the manuscript document and their placement within the text indicated by inserting:

    -Insert Figure 1 here-

     

    Tables must be cited in text in numerical sequence starting with Table 1. Each table must have a descriptive title. Any footnotes to tables are indicated by superior lower case letters. Tables should be typed on separate pages in the manuscript document and their approximate placement indicated within text by inserting:

    -Insert Table 1 here-

     

    Prepare the Main Document for anonymous peer review.

    1. Text: The Main Document text must not contain any personally identifiable information.

    2. File Properties: All personal identification information must be removed from the Properties area of the Main Document file. In Microsoft Word 2013 & 2016: File/Info/Check for Issues/Inspect Document/Inspect. [Complete directions for other Word versions are available via the Microsoft Word Help function. Type “remove hidden data” into the Help field.

    3. File name: The file name must not contain any of the authors’ names.

    Manuscripts containing personally identifiable information in the file name, text, or in the Properties area cannot be considered for publication.
