  • Special Issue: THE FATE of AIED: Fairness, Accountability, Transparency, and Ethics (abstracts due: Jan 31, 2020; papers due: Mar 30, 2020)
  • Fast Review Track: Journal submissions that follow defined deadlines for submission and review
  • CFP for Special Issues: Proposals for future special issues in IJAIED

Details on these opportunties are below.

Fast Review Track Cycles

This track accepts IJAIED submissions that will be reviewed by predictable deadlines (e.g., similar to a conference). This track maintains rigorous journal reviewing, including revision cycles which lead to papers of the highest quality.

Compared to standard submissions, this track uses strict deadlines for paper submission and review common to peer-reviewed conference proceedings. The benefit to reviewers is the predictability of workload since they pre-commit to do reviews right after the submission deadline. For authors, the benefit is that we can achieve tighter decision cycles, while maintaining high quality reviews.

Fast track review submissions for 2018 have concluded, with these accepted articles also presented in the journal track of AIED 2019. The first cycle for 2019 is in progress.

Schedule for Fast Review Cycle 1 in 2019:

  • Paper deadline: 1 May 2019
  • Decision to authors: 15 July 2019
  • Revised paper due: 15 Aug 2019
  • Decision: 15 Sep, 2019

Authors of accepted papers from this cycle will be invited to present in the journal track of AIED 2020.
