What research questions the project addresses, aims & themes
JIME is an open access online journal which was launched by IET in 1996. It publishes papers which focus on the implications and use of digital media in education. The JIME editorial board is interested in the extent to which an open online journal can be 'open' and the implications open publishing has on the intellectual reputation of the journal.
The aims of the journal are:
- To publish leading international research on the theories, practices and experiences in the field of educational technology.
- To foster a multidisciplinary and intellectually rigorous debate on the theoretical and practical aspects of digital media in education.
- To clarify the cognitive, social and cultural issues raised by the use of digital media in education.
- To explore and promote open access in education in the age of digital publishing and communication.
- To radically improve teaching and learning through better interactive media.
How the research questions are addressed by the project (methodology and activity/environment)
Several IET academics serve on the editorial board and are constantly exploring innovative ways to support open access in education via digital publishing.
