Currents in Electronic Literacy

We seek to publish work addressing theuse of electronic texts and technologies in reading, writing, teaching, and learning in fields including but not restricted to: literature (in English and in other languages), rhetoric andcomposition, languages (English, foreign, or ESL), communications, media studies, and education. We are especially interested in work that takes advantage of the hypertext possibilitiesafforded by our World Wide Web publication format, as well as in articles concerning the use ofemergent electronic technologies."

Language Teaching and Technology
A refereed journal that began publication in July 1997. The thrice-yearly journal seeks to disseminate research to foreign and second language educators in the U.S. and around the world on issues related to technology and language education. It is also a fully-refereed journal with an editorial board of scholars in the fields of second language acquisition and computer-assisted language learning. The focus of the publication is not technology per se, but rather issues related to language learning and language teaching, and how they are affected or enhanced by the use of technologies. Each article is preceded by an abstract. The issues are browseable by author, title, topic and issue while reviews are browseable by author, title and software.
