Journal of Learning Analytics is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal,
disseminating the highest quality research in the field. The journal is the
official publication of the Society for Learning Analytics Research
(SoLAR). With an international Editorial Board comprising leading scholars,
it is the first journal dedicated to research into the challenges of
collecting, analysing and reporting data with the specific intent to
improve learning and teaching practice. “Learning” is broadly defined
across a range of contexts, including informal learning on the internet,
formal academic study in institutions (primary/secondary/tertiary), and
workplace learning.

The journal seeks to connect researchers and developers with practitioners,
creating and disseminating new tools and techniques, studying
transformations, and providing ongoing evaluation and critique of the
conceptual, technical, and practical outcomes. The interdisciplinary focus
of the journal recognizes that computational, pedagogical, institutional,
policy and social domains must be brought into dialogue with each other to
ensure that interventions and organizational systems serve the needs of all
stakeholders. The journal seeks to bring into dialogue the intersection of
the fields of Education, Computation and Sensemaking.

Journal of Learning Analytics welcomes papers that either describe original
research or offer a review of the state of the art in a particular area.
The journal also welcomes practice-focused papers that detail Learning
Analytics applications in real-world settings, provided that they offer
innovative insights for advancing the field (see the About section).
