The field of education is changing rapidly. We all see it. The master’s degree has become the new bachelor’s degree, students now have the ability to earn a doctoral degree online, and even the most traditional universities are branching into the world of online graduate education.
New research is required to keep up with these trends and to study and identify what works, what doesn’t work, and where the world of possibility may take us next in online and graduate education. As a result, there is a distinct need for platforms presenting research in these advancing areas of education.
JODE is a semiannual, double-blind, peer-reviewed journal that was founded by Northcentral University (NCU) to provide a forum for the best research in the discipline of online doctoral education.
"Online doctoral education is a reflection of evolving contemporary paradigms in the workplace, in education and in the global marketplace,” shares incoming editor Dr. Greg Bradley, who also serves as the Dean of the Graduate School and Vice President of Research at NCU. “The simple truth is that rapid and continuous advances in communications technology have modified the way we work, learn, and transact."
The first issue of JODE launched earlier this month and features contributions from researchers around the world on the subjects of online doctoral education specifically and online graduate education in general. If this is an area of interest to you, or if you are interested in submitting a paper for consideration, be sure to check out the website at: http://jode.ncu.edu. The submission deadline for the Journal’s current Call for Papers is October 15, 2014.
