IDEA Papers Online Research Series

As the field of online education continues to evolve, the literature related to online teaching and learning also continues to grow and develop. 

IDEA and Oregon State University Ecampus have partnered to sponsor the IDEA Papers Online Research Series, offering comprehensive reviews of online teaching and learning research from disciplinary perspectives. Each paper synthesizes existing research related to online teaching and learning for a particular discipline for the purpose of providing an up-to-date resource for instructors and administrators who are interested in learning more about the efficacy and exploration of online teaching and learning in their field.

The IDEA Papers Online Research Series is a subset of the IDEA Papers, which began in 1979. Approximately six papers will be published in this series each year.

This series follows a double-blind review procedure. Authors are requested to submit a blinded manuscript without any names and affiliations in the text or on the title page. Submission of a manuscript implies that the work has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else, and that its publication has been approved by all co­authors, if any. Authors should follow the latest issue of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association in preparing manuscripts for this series. Authors should comply with "Guidelines to Reduce Bias in Language" as printed in the Publication Manual.

Authors are encouraged to send questions about the Online Research Series, including the submission of paper abstracts for feedback, to series editor, Dr. Katie Linder.

For more information on how to submit a paper for consideration, see Submission Guidelines: Online Research Series.
