Research track

Abstracts submitted to the research track should describe original research and apply a rigorous research method. Submissions to this track undergo a single blind peer-review by the Center for Open Education Research (COER).


An extended abstract with a maximum of 500 words (excluding references) is required for the research track that outlines the rationale for the study, research questions, the design and methodology, findings, and implications of the study.


Submissions are evaluated based primarily on originality, significance, methodological rigour, and relevance to the conference themes.


Based on full papers submitted within the research track, a shortlist will be made on papers qualifying for a selection procedure of the Online Learning Journal (OLJ) or the newly established Journal of Open, Distance, and Digital Education (JODDE). Both JODDE and OLJ are peer-reviewed, open access journals dedicated to the development and dissemination of new knowledge at the intersection of pedagogy, emerging technology, policy, and practice in online environments. Selected papers dealing with issues related to teaching and learning in online environments will be invited for submission to the OLJ while JODDE publishes research on the institutional and systems level such as professional development, quality assurance, internationalization, student support systems, etc.
