This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Journal of the Learning Sciences. In three decades, the journal has established itself as one of the premier venues for sharing research on learning and design. As a way to commemorate JLS’ 30th anniversary and envision its growth over the next decade, we invite Reports and Reflections papers that offer deliberate discussion of the conceptual and methodological development of the Learning Sciences and articulate new challenges.
These papers might (a) consolidate “big ideas” related to critical research themes and envision future research agendas that synergize different dimensions of learning; (b) re-consider foundational concepts and design approaches in a new context; and/or, (c) present exploratory studies of new concepts, research methods, designs or technologies that are significant for the next generation of Learning Sciences scholarship.
Authors who are interested to write such Reports and Reflections papers are welcome to share their themes and abstracts with the JLS editors for early feedback. Please refer to the JLS instructions for authors regarding the structuring of Reports and Reflections papers. https://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?show=instructions&journalCode=hlns20
