The Journal of Information Technology Education: Research (JITE: Research) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes scholarly articles on the use of information technology at all levels of education. This includes using technology to enhance learning, to support teaching and teaching administration. In addition, articles on the teaching of information technology are also welcome. While information technology is the central focus, a sound underpinning of pedagogical principles is requisite.

The journal publishes conceptual, theoretical and empirical papers that make a substantial contribution to determining the role of information technology in education.

All manuscripts are submitted and reviewed electronically.  We provide our published authors with both a quality print publication and the widespread readership that comes from publishing all articles online within a few weeks of acceptance. This approach ensures that published works are read and cited by the widest possible audience.

Mission

The mission of the Journal of Information Technology Education: Research is to promote scholarly research on the integration of information technology in education to enhance learning and teaching. This implies the application of appropriate pedagogy to such efforts. We aim to achieve this by:

  1. Publishing contributions that cross boundaries such as geographical, discipline and methodological approaches.
  2. Rapid online publication of accepted articles.
  3. Giving useful, timely feedback on submissions through a rigorous review process that is also one of collegial mentoring.
  4. Continuing as the most authoritative journal on IT in education research.
  5. Acknowledging and embracing the diversity of teaching and learning models in use around the world.

We have placed a copy of the Informing Science Institute Policy on Professional Ethics here.

Message from the Editor in Chief

The Journal of Information Technology Education: Research is a scholarly forum for those wishing to explore and advance all aspects of education through the considered and appropriate application of information technology. We believe that sharing ideas and views from diverse communities, fields and epistemologies provides alternative perspectives and suggest novel solutions.

We provide authors with both rapid turnaround and collegial mentoring.  With more than 20 editors from 17 countries on 5 continents and over 300 reviewers from around the globe, we are truly an international journal. 

All of our editors have been promoted from our International Board of Reviewers.  If you are willing to turn around reviews quickly and wish to join our International Board of Reviewers, go to http://jiteresearch.org/reviewers.
