JIME is a peer-reviewed open access online journal in educational technology that focuses on the implications and use of digital media in education. It aims to foster a multidisciplinary and intellectually rigorous debate on both the theory and practice of interactive media in education. JIME was launched in September 1996 and is supported by The Open University, UK.
Each year JIME publishes reviews of some of the latest books released on the topics of educational technology and the role of multimedia technologies in higher education.

In April 2017 representatives from 18 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean gathered in São Paulo to discuss the recommendations that would be put forward to the 2nd World OER Congress in relation to mainstreaming OER to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goal on Quality Education. During the discussions that preceded these recommendations, it was noted that countries in Latin America are still in the early stages of adopting OER. This delayed uptake was firstly attributed to the lack of visibility of existing open education initiatives in the region. This Special Collection is an attempt to redress this issue.
This collection is now online and available to read.

Learning in the 21st century has been undergoing both subtle and radical transformation as a result of the impact of digital, networked technologies. Under these conditions, open learning can support learners across the globe by providing unprecedented access to information and education. However, it is not the technologies themselves that represent the most significant changes, but rather the opportunities for openness that flow from their thoughtful application through the availability of and access to formal and informal learning. Yet without supporting research to drive the direction of these opportunities, issues related to exclusion and fair access may negatively impact such educational changes.
Within this environment, the in-depth and cutting edge research produced by doctoral students provides important insights into the field. Yet, there is often a lack of publishing opportunities for those in the doctoral process to demonstrate their work in the area of open world learning. Therefore, we invite contributions from current doctoral students to JIME for a special collection issue on doctoral research to address the previously shown transformations in an open world. Submissions to this special issue should have a clear educational focus or application and should illuminate the special contribution of doctoral educational technology research to current realities of education around the world.
Research conducted by doctoral students covers many interdisciplinary topics, and we are looking for submissions that present either joint research between doctoral students or individual doctoral research.DEADLINES
