Please note: This news item was published on 16 February 2017. Research in Learning Technology is fully operational and accepting submissions. To access the archive and to submit manuscripts please visit

Research in Learning Technology is ALT’s Open Access online journal. Research in Learning Technology publishes papers concerning the use of technology in learning and teaching in all sectors of education, as well as in industry. The focus of the journal is on publishing high quality evidence-based manuscripts from researchers, practitioners and policy makers which serve the needs of the diverse and international readership. Manuscripts can be purely research-based or draw critically on practice-based approaches in the area of technology-enhanced learning. Articles can be focused on any level of education, from formal primary, secondary, further and tertiary (higher) education to professional learning (e.g. CPD) and informal learning. Its publisher, Co-Action, joined Taylor & Francis last autumn.

The formal transition of the journal to Taylor & Francis is now complete; however, due to a large number of unresolved issues we do not currently accept new submissions. The full archive of journal articles remains available and papers already submitted will be processed as normal.


The Journal will continue to be available as an Open Access journal and you can read it here.  The full archive of articles has also moved and is available.


The journal does not currently accept new submissions while we complete the transition. Once the system is open again from the end of April you will be able to  submit your articles via the new website. Please read the guideline for authors as these have changed slightly.

Editors and Editorial Board

The governance and editorial leadership of the journal will not change. Members of the Editorial Board and Editors are being kept informed of changes to the submissions system.


Do contact us if you have any questions.

We would like to thank all our readers, authors and editors for their patience and support during the transition. Please continue to provide feedback and help is iron out any problems while we get to grips with the new systems. We hope you will continue to benefit from reading the journal.
