Reading Online, IRA’s peer-reviewed electronic journal, is seeking manuscripts on literacy practice and research in K-12 classrooms. The journal publishes articles about print literacy, visual and media literacy, critical literacy, information literacy and other electronic literacies. It has a special mission to support teachers integrating technology in the classroom, to develop understanding of new literacies, and to promote international perspectives. The journal is freely available to individuals with Internet access and attracts a diverse audience of teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and university students from around the world.
General interest articles with a focus on practice, along with theoretical and research articles (including action research) with a strong classroom connection, are being accepted for peer review. Articles may vary in length, from feature length articles, to short descriptive pieces about effective classroom practice and technology-based projects. Alternative formats such as a photo essay, an interview, or a multi-media composition are welcome.
While not a requirement for publication, authors are encouraged to take advantage of the electronic medium to enhance content and promote reader interaction. Articles may include links to related web sites and integrate graphics, audio, and video. The ROL Communities List serve also provides authors the option of interacting directly with readers. Full instructions for authors are posted at the journal site, at http://www.readingonline.org/about/authors/.
The editors welcome queries and would be pleased to discuss potential submissions with authors:
Special Call for Themed Issue on Struggling Readers and Writers
Deadline for manuscripts: April 1, 2001
We recently completed a reader needs assessment to solicit input to the journal planning process. A recurring theme that emerged was readers’ desire to learn more about how to teach ALL their students effectively, and especially struggling readers and writers. We invite manuscripts on this general topic, including research and practice articles, descriptions of effective teaching and assessment approaches, programs, and materials, and reviews of professional books, Internet resources, children’s and YA literature.
