Journal of the Learning Sciences: Special Issue Call for Proposals

Journal of the Learning Sciences invites proposals for a special issue to be published in 2023. Instructions for preparing a proposal are posted on the Instructions to Authors at the publisher’s website, Proposals are due December 14, 2020 and will be peer reviewed by the journal’s editorial leadership team. We will notify the submitters of the accepted proposal in February 2021.

We are especially interested in proposals that develop emerging areas of research and conceptual/methodological innovations that will shape the future of the field and increase its impact on practice and policy. For example, we welcome proposals that address topics including – and not limited to – teacher learning and design; learning and development as part of social activism; changing notions of expertise in transforming technological and relational contexts; analyses of learning at the intersection of race, equity, and technology development; methodological innovations foregrounding the ethical, political, cognitive, and socio-emotional dimensions of learning across the lifespan, possibly linking to new approaches to data analytics; and synergy-building across disciplinary perspectives and frameworks to understand key dimensions of learning.

We encourage proposals that include and reflect international concerns and perspectives. Towards this end, proposal submissions may include names of suggested authors as well as their institutional affiliations and/or brief description of their geographic areas of expertise.
