Guidelines and Basic Information
The Journal of Interactive Online Learning is an online-only journal that disseminates original articles regarding the theory, research, and practice of higher-level learning in interactive online environments.
The Journal of Interactive Online Learning is currently not accepting submissions. The Journal of Interactive Online Learning published its first issue in 2002, one of the first peer reviewed research journals in the discipline to be fully online. For 16 years, the journal has provided a forum for the dissemination of research on interactive online education, and has published numerous articles that have helped readers further their knowledge of emerging innovations in online education.
We will publish a special, invited, final edition this November, 2018.
Finally, we want to thank all of the contributing authors and peer reviewers who have helped the journal achieve tremendous success and readership over these past 16 years.
Where to find issues of JIOL
Each issue will be made publicly available at:
A brief autobiography of the author(s) should be included on the last page of the manuscript. This will be detached before sending on to reviewers in order to facilitate the blind review process. Include full name(s) and title(s), and such information as academic background, research interests, current position, and full contact details (e-mail address, postal address, telephone, and fax numbers). Any references that identify author(s) must be removed from manuscript text before submission.
The Journal of Interactive Online Learning will retain the copyright of all published items.
The journal editors will contact you upon manuscript receipt. Every effort will be made to complete the blind review process within six to eight weeks.
