Call for Reviewers – JALN

The Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks is looking to expand our volunteer reviewing base. Reviews are typically needed within 2–4 weeks of assignment. If you have expertise in the topic area of online education and are interested in a first look at some of the latest research being conducted in online education and asynchronous learning networks, please register with our online reviewing site , and indicate on the form that you are interested in reviewing, as well as indentifying your specific fields of interest in the text box below the “reviewer” check box near the bottom of the form.

The aim of the Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks is to describe original work in asynchronous learning networks (ALN), including experimental results. Our mission is to provide practitioners in online education with knowledge about the very best research in online learning. Papers emphasizing results, backed by data are the norm. Occasionally, papers reviewing broad areas are published, including critical reviews of thematic areas. Papers useful to administrators are welcome. Entire issues are published from time-to-time around single topic or disciplinary areas. The Journal adheres to traditional standards of double-blind peer review, and authors are encouraged to provide quantitative data; currently JALN's acceptance rate is 25%. The original objective of the Journal was to establish ALN as a field by publishing articles from authoritative and reliable sources. The Journal is now a major resource for knowledge about online learning.
