Online EdD Programs

Submission Deadline: November 1, 2020

Expected Publication: March 2021

The first in the series will highlight innovations in virtual spaces, centering the experiences of those who lead, teach, and learn in primarily online EdD programs. This issue will feature programmatic innovations in virtual spaces that might not have been imagined a century ago. You can find the call for manuscripts here.

IE is currently seeking research articles, essays, and book reviews for a future special themed issue focused on online EdD program (re)design, development, implementation, and impact. Specific requirements for each type of manuscript are detailed in the journal’s editorial policies.

This themed issue is one of a series celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Education Doctorate. Centering the experiences of those who lead, teach, and learn in primarily online EdD programs, this issue will feature programmatic innovations in virtual spaces that might not have been imagined a century ago. EdD programs enacted primarily online take many shapes and forms, so we welcome manuscripts that examine issues unique to e-learning; share strategies for online teaching and advising; explore resources for online course design and delivery; evaluate successes, challenges, and opportunities specific to online programs; and critically reflect on asynchronous and/or synchronous educational experiences.  

Research articles, essays, and book reviews should be submitted by November 1, 2020 via the IE online submission portal. Manuscripts should adhere to IE’s editorial policies (word count, references, formatting, etc.).

  • November 1, 2020: Manuscripts due to the IE online submission portal

  • November 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020: Peer reviews of submissions, Author revisions and resubmissions
