    Simulation & Gaming (S&G): An International Journal of Theory, Practice and Research serves as a leading international forum for the exploration and development of simulation/gaming methodologies used in education, training, consultation, and research. S&G appraises academic and applied issues in the expanding fields of simulation; computer and internet mediated simulation, virtual reality, educational games, video games, industrial simulators, active and experiential learning, case studies, and related methodologies.

    S&G encourages original research and reviews on innovative uses of simulation and/or gaming and ready to use games. We will consider case reports on a case by case basis, where the editors feel that the article will contribute to innovative ways of thinking about the use of simulation and gaming.
