Publication Opportunity! - The Internet and Higher Education: Online Learning Environments (Due Date - June 1st)


I just discovered a great publication opportunity on the "Instructional Systems @ FSU" blog. for anyone focused on emotions in online learning environments! :)

Here's the information:

The Internet and Higher Education

Special Issue Call for Papers on Emotions in Online Learning Environments: Theory, Research, and Practice

Special Issue Editor: Anthony R. Artino, Jr. Ph.D.

Scholars have recently called for more inquiry on the role of emotions
in education. Although the dynamics of emotions that emerge during
online learning may be less apparent than those experienced during
traditional classroom instruction, limited empirical evidence suggests
that emotions are important contributors to learning and achievement
in online environments. However, educators currently know little
about the complexity of student and teacher emotions and their
potential influence on academic outcomes in online contexts.
Accordingly, The Internet and Higher Education (INTHIG) invites papers
for a special issue focusing on understanding the role of emotions in
online learning environments (OLEs). Specific areas of interest
include, but are not limited to:

How emotions develop and evolve in OLEs;
How students and teachers regulate their emotions in OLEs;
Emotional states and traits in online learning processes;
Assessing emotions in OLEs;
The influence of emotions on cognition, motivation, behavior,
collaboration, and achievement in OLEs;
The emotional experience of being an online instructor;
How emotional factors can be integrated into existing theories of
online learning; and
OLE design features and instructional activities that impact student
and teacher emotions.

Manuscripts that focus on theoretical, empirical, and practical issues
will be considered, and manuscripts that employ qualitative,
quantitative, and mixed-methods designs are welcomed and encouraged.
All submissions should follow the usual format for INTHIG submissions
and should adhere to existing INTHIG Author Guidelines, which can be
found on the submission website (see link below).

Authors are requested to submit manuscripts via the Elsevier Editorial
System no later than June 1, 2011. The submission website can be
found at To ensure all manuscripts
are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, authors
are asked to please select <<>> when they reach the
“Article Type” step in the submission process.
