Open Competition and Guidelines for Special Issues

The CJLT publishes a maximum of one special issue per year. All proposals
submitted for Special Issues undergo an open call followed by a formal peer
review by the CJLT editorial team.

If you are considering submitting a proposal for a special issue in the
CJLT, please refer to the proposal guidelines and send the proposal to the
CJLT managing editors (cjlt@ualberta.ca).

Special Issue Proposal Guidelines

A Special Issue proposal should contain the following information:

– The title of the proposed special issue.
– The names, institutional affiliations, emails, and positions of the
proposed Guest Editor(s) together with brief biographical details.
– A brief description of the rationale, fit with aims and scope of the CJLT,
its innovative nature and significance in relation to existing published
work in educational technology, contribution to learning theory, and a
statement on why this special issue will appeal to our readership (not to
exceed 1500 words).
– Names and position of each proposed contributor and a 300-word abstract of
their planned paper, together with an indication of their commitment to
contribute to the special issue.
– A statement that all manuscripts submitted are not currently under review
elsewhere, the material is original, and has not been published in prior
conference proceedings, journals, or other scholarly fora.
– Provision of at least three names and corresponding emails, per
manuscript, of arm’s length academics (not personally affiliated with any
of the authors and/or the guest editors) with a brief statement of the
reviewers’ research expertise in the area.
– Proposed timelines for the special issue manuscript submissions to the
managing editor that are ready for peer review (e.g., the guest editors have
reviewed each manuscript for APA format, references have been cross-checked,
writing is free from editorial errors, etc.).

NOTE: The CJLT editors and managing editors oversee the peer review process
for special issues and make the editorial decision to accept, accept with
revisions, revise and resubmit for review, or reject. This process typically
takes 12-18 months from the proposal submission deadline to the publication
of the special issue.

All manuscripts for the special issue will be subject to standard peer
review and must adhere to the CJLT issue guidelines and timelines (e.g.,
published in a spring, summer or winter issue; 5 manuscripts per issue).
Manuscript word count should fall between 5000-6500 words (not to exceed
7000 words) including references, figures, diagrams and tables.  Guest
Editor(s) are required to adhere to a publishing agreement with the CJLT
once a special issue proposal has been accepted by the Editorial Team.

Special issues are managed via the Open Journal System (OJS) used by the
CJLT, and overseen by the managing editors. Normal CJLT refereeing
procedures (at least two referees per paper) apply.

If you have any further questions, feel free to get in touch with the
managing editors at cjlt@ualberta.ca.

Proposals for special issues to be published in 2018 are due April 1, 2017.
Notification of acceptance will be provided by April 30, 2017.
