The scope of JLS and instructions for authors are explained at the publisher's website (above). Here we mention 3 areas specific areas where we currently would like to see more submissions:

  • Articles that help the field understand how learning-sciences research can better impact policy and practice. Please see the open-access guest editorial by Susan McKenney for a detailed call.
  • Reports and Reflections: These are short articles of 4000 to 6000 words that aim to stir up debate and support the development of the field. For 3 examples, see volume 23 issue 1 (2014). We are interested in articles that help to make connections to other fields, methodological papers, and many more topics.
  • Articles that enhance the international reach of JLS. Articles from regions that are relatively new to the learning sciences.
