Academic Journals

Early in my career, I had problems identifying quality journals in educational technology and its related fields, so I compiled a list of the journals that are in circulation in our field. These journals focus on the broad field of educational technology, distance education, and educational psychology. Not all journals were created equally. I tried to avoid including any discipline-specific journals, except in cases where there was a clear focus on educational technology. I pulled the acceptance rate data from Cabell’s directory of White Journals. If you have any journals I should add to my list, please contact me.
