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

All papers submitted to the journal are initially reviewed by the Editors and those selected for consideration are submitted to a double-blind peer review by at least two members of the Review Board. On the basis of these reviews, the Editors will then either:

  1. Accept the paper for publication with no changes
  2. Accept the paper for publication with only minor, editorial changes
  3. Accept the paper for publication provided it is amended in line with the reviewers comments
  4. Recommend a more major re-write and offer the chance to resubmit 
  5. Reject the paper as unsuitable for publication
  6. In all instances, reviewers' comments are passed to the authors.
The journal also periodically 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 (this 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 to print or download the papers. 

EJEL now follows a continuous method of publication. This means that once a paper has been finally accepted, an invoice for the publication fee will be sent. On receipt of payment the paper will pass through to typesetting and authors will receive page proofs to check. We will endeavour to provide page proofs within two weeks of the publication fee being received and to publish the paper within two weeks of authors accepting the page proofs. The exception to this process is special issues. In this case authors will be kept informed as to progress of the issue, and where possible all papers will be published together.


Archives of the Journal are held by the British Library.
