Journal of Writing Analytics Open Submissions for Volume 2

Journal of Writing Analytics launched.

The Journal of Writing Analytics (Analytics) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal published by Colorado State University Open Press. Additional support for the journal is provided by the University of South Florida and the National Science Foundation.

Conceptualized as a multidisciplinary field, Writing Analytics is defined as the study of communication processes and genres as they occur in digital educational environments. The journal operates at the intersection of educational measurement, massive data analysis, digital learning ecologies, and philosophical ethics. Intended to give voice to an emerging community, the journal is devoted to programs of research providing evidence of fair, reliable, and valid analytics. Dedicated to application, such multidisciplinary research will demonstrate its usefulness to educational stakeholders as they expand opportunities for diverse learners.

Publication of Analytics is annual and coincides with the International Conference on Writing Analytics, hosted in 2017 by the University of South Florida. When the conference is announced in the fall of each year, solicitations will be open for both the conference and the journal. Researchers may submit a manuscript without attending the conference.

The Analytics web site is updated quarterly in the winter, spring, summer, and autumn. Updates include book reviews, advances in code, new quantitative techniques, and research notes.

  • Manuscripts for Analytics are due January 30, 2017
  • Manuscripts are returned following peer review March 6, 2017
  • Final accepted papers are due April 10, 2017
  • Issue 1 of Analytics will be published June 5, 2017
