(From Stewart Marshall)
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new refereed e-journal: "International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology (IJEDICT)" located at http://ijedict.dec.uwi.edu/. Articles in the first issue will be published early in 2005.
The journal is published on the WWW as an open resource journal, i.e., with free and open access to all, but it has the status of commercially published journals by having an International Editorial Board and academic peer-reviewed articles.
The journal concentrates on ICT in education and development in hitherto less developed parts of the world, e.g., developing countries (especially small states), and rural and remote regions of developed countries. It has a research section for academic, peer-reviewed articles, and a "studies from the field" section for edited (but not peer reviewed) case studies/reports.
Call for Papers
We are now calling for research papers, case studies, reports from the field, book reviews and other submissions you may wish to offer to this community. There is no set deadline – articles are published as soon as they have been reviewed and copyedited.
For further details on how to submit your article, please visit the IJEDICT website located at http://ijedict.dec.uwi.edu/.
