CFP: The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy

The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy

General Issue
Issue Editors:
Shelly Eversley, Baruch College, CUNY
Krystyna Michael, The Graduate Center, CUNY

The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (JITP) seeks scholarly work that explores the intersection of technology with teaching, learning, and research. We are interested in contributions that take advantage of the affordances of digital platforms in creative ways. We invite both textual and multimedia submissions employing interdisciplinary and creative approaches in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Besides scholarly papers, the submissions can consist of audio or visual presentations and interviews, dialogues, or conversations; creative/artistic works; manifestos; or other scholarly materials, including work that addresses the labor and care considerations of academic technology projects.

All work appearing in the Issues section of JITP is reviewed by the issue editors and independently by two scholars in the field, who provide formative feedback to the author(s) during the review process. We practice signed, as opposed to blind, peer review. We intend that the journal itself—both in our process and in our digital product—serve as an opportunity to reveal, reflect on, and revise academic publication and classroom practices. Additionally, all submissions will be considered for our “Behind the Seams” feature, in which we publish dynamic representations of the revision and editorial processes, including reflections from the authorial and editorial participants.

Research-based submissions should include discussions of approach, method, and analysis. When possible, research data should be made publicly available and accessible via the Web and/or other digital mechanisms, a process that JITP can and will support as necessary. Successes and interesting failures are equally welcome. Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies play out in both formal and informal educational settings. Discipline-specific submissions should be written for non-specialists.

As a courtesy to our reviewers, we will not consider simultaneous submissions, but we will do our best to reply to you within three months of the submission deadline. The expected length for finished manuscripts is under 5,000 words. All work should be original and previously unpublished. Essays or presentations posted on a personal blog may be accepted, provided they are substantially revised; please contact us with any questions at editors@jitpedagogy.org.

For further information on style and formatting, accessibility requirements, and multimedia submissions, consult JITP’s accessibility guidelinesstyle guide and multimedia submission guidelines.

Important Dates

Submission deadline for full manuscripts is May 15, 2019. Please view our submission guidelines for information about submitting to the Journal.

Call for Chapters: Changing Roles, Changing Times: Essays on Academic and Public Librarians’ Responsibilities in an Era of Change

Call for Book Chapters: Academic and Public Libraries

I am seeking chapter proposals for a new edited collection tentatively titled “Changing Roles, Changing Times: Essays on Academic and Public Librarians’ Responsibilities in an Era of Change”, to be published by McFarland & Company.

The monograph’s purpose is to examine the impact of technology on librarians’ position duties and responsibilities.  This evolution is leading to the creation of new positions and the restructuring of old positions in order to meet the increasing demands technology is placing on the profession.  The impact of technology is significantly revising the look of librarianship in the academic and public spheres.  Librarians from all levels are impacted from the newly-hired librarian to the seasoned, veteran manager.

This work seeks to capture the experiences, thoughts, and opinions of librarians whose new roles are transforming their working relationships with faculty and students and related communities. Librarians working in academic and public libraries have valuable experiences to share with the library community. The entire library community will benefit from reading and applying the experiences and knowledge shared by a group of library leaders.

Please submit a proposal of 250-500 words for consideration.

Topics may include, but not limited to:

Digital Services:

  • Big Data Analytics
  • Collaborations with constituents such as students and local communities
  • Data Curation and Preservation
  • Data Management (e.g. data management plans)
  • Data Science
  • Data Visualization
  • Digital Humanities
  • Discovery search services
  • Social Media
  • Virtual Reality

“Open” Activities:

  • Creative Commons Licensing
  • Institutional Repositories

New Book Series: The Routledge Studies in Archives

The Routledge Studies in Archives series publishes new and cutting-edge research in records and archives studies. Recognising the imperative for record-keeping work in support of memory, social justice, technical systems, legal rights and historical understanding, this series extends the disciplinary boundaries of archival studies. It sees the archival in personal, economic and political activity, historically and digitally situated cultures, subcultures and movements, technological and infrastructural developments and in many other places.

Routledge Studies in Archives brings scholarship from diverse academic and cultural traditions into conversation and presents the work of emerging and established scholars, side by side. It promotes the exploration of the intellectual history of archival science, the internationalisation of archival discourse and the building of new archival theory.

The Series Editor invites proposals for books that offer original thinking about archives and records. If you have an idea for a book that you think would be appropriate for the series, then please contact the Series Editor, James Lowry (jlowry@liverpool.ac.uk), to discuss further.
