THE JOURNAL OF EDUCATION, COMMUNITY, AND VALUES
The Berglund Center for Internet Studies at Pacific University Oregon facilitates both theoretical discussion and practical action relating to the impact of the Internet upon individuals and their communities worldwide. We study the effects of the Internet on the ways we work, communicate, teach, and learn. The audience for the Journal is a very broad one, including all those interested in the impact of the Internet, and the pool of potential articles and authors also varies.
All queries are welcome and should be directed to Jeffrey Barlow, Editor, Interface. (email@example.com. Please place "BCIS Journal" in the subject header.) Continue reading for more information about the process of submissions and desired pieces.
Interface publishes ten times per year, on the first working day of each month except for January and July. Submissions are welcome at any time. Documents received before the 15th of the month will be published in the following month's issue, space permitting. Articles selected for publication but not posted due to space will be published in the following issue.
We invite those with an interest in the impact of the Internet upon the individual and society to contribute to the Journal. Potential articles might stem from the author's experience in working with electronic communications, in a business tied to the industry, as a teacher developing electronic materials, or some other experience relevant to our diverse audience. Following publication, we pay one hundred dollars for individual articles, which are expected to be between one thousand and one thousand five hundred words. Before submitting, please read our Style Sheet.
We are accepting submissions intended to be published under a professional peer review process. Upon attaining a peer-reviewed status, we will be happy to provide letters for evaluation files or processes discussing our standards, the readership of the journal, and any responses we have received concerning pieces published under our peer review guidelines. We cannot pay for peer-reviewed articles, as the process of peer reviewing is an expensive one for us involving the time of additional editors and often corrections and re-submissions. For standards and more information about these submissions please see Peer Review.
We particularly welcome submissions from those interested in writing a regular column or feature for us. We continue to pay one hundred dollars per article published, and copyright remains with the author rather than with the Berglund Center. We also honor our regular contributors by adding them to our Editorial Board. For more information about contributing regularly, see our Call for Editors.
Published articles are assigned labels to indicate the level of authority they represent in a given field, and the corresponding level of trust the articles should be given by a reader. For more information about authority levels, please read About Authority Levels.
