Journal Special Issues

All accepted and registered full, short, and work-in-progress papers that are presented at TALE 2018 in the Academic Stream will be published in the conference proceedings (USB with ISBN) and submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library. Content loaded into Xplore is made available by IEEE to its abstracting and indexing partners, including Elsevier (Scopus, Ei Compendex), Clarivate Analytics (CPCI—part of Web of Science) and others, for potential inclusion in their respective databases.


In addition, the TALE 2018 Organising Committee has negotiated with a number of prominent journals to expand the opportunities potentially available to authors. As a result, authors of selected papers in the Academic Stream will be invited to submit revised and expanded versions of their papers for possible publication in special issues of journals, which may include those listed below. This process will be conducted externally to the TALE conference organisation.

Education and Information Technologies (Springer)

Education and Information Technologies (EAIT) is the official journal of the IFIP Technical Committee on Education. It covers the complex relationships between information and communication technologies and education. The journal provides perspectives at all levels, from the micro of specific applications or instances of use in classrooms to macro concerns of national policies and major projects; from classes of 5-year-olds to adults in tertiary institutions; from teachers and administrators, to researchers and designers; from institutions to open, distance and lifelong learning. This breadth of coverage allows EAIT to examine fundamental issues at all levels, discuss specific instances and cases, draw inference and probe theory. This journal is embedded in the research and practice of professionals.

International Journal of STEM Education (Springer)

The International Journal of STEM Education (IJSTEME) is a multidisciplinary journal in subject-content education that focuses on the study of teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The journal provides a unique platform for sharing research regarding, among other topics, the design and implementation of technology-rich learning environments, innovative pedagogies, and curricula in STEM education that promote successful learning in Pre K-16 levels including teacher education. We are also interested in studies that address specific challenges in improving students’ achievement, approaches used to motivate and engage students, and lessons learned from changes in curriculum and instruction in STEM education.

International Journal of Technology and Design Education (Springer)

The International Journal of Technology and Design Education (IJTDE) encourages research and scholarly writing covering all aspects of technology and design education. The journal features critical, review, and comparative studies. In addition, readers will find contributions that draw upon other fields such as historical, philosophical, sociological, or psychological studies that address issues of concern to technology and design education. The Editorial Board views the teaching of technology and design as an emergent rather than an established practice, with many open issues requiring research. Among these issues are the preparation of technology teachers, the assessment of technological competence, and the relationship of technology to other curriculum elements, notably science. There are also significant policy questions that need to be addressed relating to the practice and rationale of curriculum change.
