Opportunity to publish in the special edition of Open Praxis

Journal Publication Opportunity

We are very pleased to announce that Open Praxis will publish a selection of papers from the Open Education Global 2015 conference. Open Praxis is a peer-reviewed open access scholarly journal focusing on research and innovation in open, distance and flexible education, published by the International Council for Open and Distance Education – ICDE.  Articles selected for publication must meet the established criteria of the journal, which can be found at http://www.openpraxis.org/index.php/OpenPraxis/about/editorialPolicies.

If you would like your paper considered for publication in the April-June 2015 edition of Open Praxis, please note that papers submitted for publication will follow an additional review process. The Open Education Global Program Committee will first review submissions for inclusion in the conference. Those accepted for presentation will then be forwarded to Open Praxis for peer review and possible inclusion in the April-June 2015 edition.

Instructions to submit proposals can be found at http://conference.oeconsortium.org/2015/call-for-papers/.  Please indicate “Submit for Open Praxis” above the abstract on your proposal.  These proposals will be given an expedited review and you will be notified by 15 December if your paper will be recommended for inclusion in Open Praxis.  Full papers must be submitted by 23 January 2015. Authors will be notified by 15 March 2015 if the paper has been accepted for publication. Additional revisions may be requested during the peer review process.

Papers submitted for publication should follow the word count guidelines for Open Praxis:

  • Research articles (approx. 5000 words) may focus on concepts, analysis and results of studies regarding open and distance education.
  • Innovative practice articles (approx. 3000 words) may provide analysis of concrete experiences.

All papers must be submitted in English. Several Open Education Consortium members have volunteered to assist with English language editing. If you would like such assistance, please contact conference@oeconsortium.org no later than 30 October 2014.
