Researchers select their manuscript’s subject matter, scrutinize the content and then must choose a scholarly journal for submission. Matching a manuscript to an appropriate journal is an integral piece of the publishing puzzle. It is a make or break piece and is deserving of substantial time, research and careful consideration.

To support researchers on their journey from manuscript development to publication, eContent Pro offers Journal Recommendation alongside its suite of professional publishing services. As researchers progress through pre-publication, eContent Pro will highlight a reputable journal from a select list of publishers every week across their 11 subject areas. This week, eContent Pro highlights a Computer Science & IT journal: Computers & Education.


Publisher: Elsevier

Subject Area: Computer Science & IT

Overview:Computers & Education aims to increase knowledge and understanding of ways in which digital technology can enhance education, through the publication of high-quality research, which extends theory and practice. The Editors welcome research papers on the pedagogical uses of digital technology, where the focus is broad enough to be of interest to a wider education community.

The journal does not publish small-scale evaluations of specific software/systems in specialist domains or particular courses in individual institutions (unless the findings have broader relevance that is explicitly drawn out in the paper). Papers that include discussions of the implementation of software and/or hardware should focus on the context of use, the user/system interface, usability issues and evaluations of the user experience and impacts on and particularly on the implications for learning and teaching. Computers as a delivery platform only is insufficient. Detailed information on implementation architecture should NOT be included in the paper, but may be provided via URLs.

The journal welcomes systematic review papers and meta-analyses that include clear research questions, a framework of analysis, and conclusions that reflect the aims of the paper. (Elsevier)”
