The Electronic Journal of e-Learning is an online open access journal that aims to publish articles and papers that contribute to the development of theory and practice in the field of e-Learning. For full details of the aims and scope of the journal, click here

It is currently published bi-annually with a general issue and a special issue. The general issue contains papers submitted in response to a call for papers. These papers are reviewed by the Editor and those selected for inclusion are submitted to a double-blind peer review by members of the Editorial board. On the basis of these reviews, the Editor then either:

  1. Accepts the paper for publication with no changes
  2. Accepts the paper for publication with only minor, editorial changes
  3. Accepts the paper for publication provided it is amended in line with the reviewers comments
  4. Recommends a more major re-write and offers the chance to resubmit for consideration in another issue
  5. Rejects the paper as unsuitable for publication
  6. In all instances, reviewers' comments are passed to the authors.
The special issue contains papers selected from the European Conference on eLearning. The papers are selected from those nominated by:
  • Session chairs at the conference
  • Delegates to the conference
  • Members of the Editorial board
The final selection is made by the Editor, with assistance from the Editorial board. These papers have already been reviewed for the conference and are not subjected to additional review, unless substantial changes are requested by the Editor or an additional review is requested by the author(s).
The journal also publishes book and conference reviews and these are welcomed at any time.


In accordance with the practice in the open access community authors are asked to pay a nominal sum to publish in EJEL, which is intended to cover some of the costs of publishing. The current publication charge is GBP250 (which includes 20% VAT which may therefore be recoverable by some authors/universities). This amount is payable only after the paper has been accepted for publication.

There are no charges to access the journal on screen or by printing or downloading the papers. 

Archives of the Journal are held by the Brisish Library.
