Research in Learning Technology - previously ALT-J

Announcement - Research in Learning Technology - Open Access from 2012

From January 2012 our journal will be fully Open Access, produced in partnership with the Swedish publisher Co-Action Publishing. We are about to complete negotiations on the new publishing agreement with Co-Action, and once finalised the process of transfer of the journal from the current publisher to Co-Action will then begin, taking final effect at the end of 2011. This change represents a major development for ALT. One effect will be that the contents Research in Learning Technology will be hugely more accessible to people world-wide than at present. Another will be much better integration between the journal and the ALT conference. A third is likely to be a modest reduction in the annual costs of organisational membership of ALT, from February 2012.
