Journal of Interactive Media in Education

JIME is an open access online journal in educational technology that focuses on the implications and use of digital media in education.  It aims to foster a multidisciplinary and intellectually rigorous debate on both the theory and practice of interactive media in education.  JIME was launched in September, 1996.

We aim to publish JIME three times a year

JIME has some exciting special issues lined up for 2014/2015 including a special issue on OER and state-of-the-art research in mobile learning.  Further possible special issues are under discussion.  So, whilst we usually welcoome new papers, we are not currently soliciting new papers except for papers in areas that align with these topics, i.e. OER (including MOOCS) and mobile learning research.

Please also note that we have amended our scope a little to focus on adult learning and so are not seeking submissions on the use of educational technology in school settings.
