Call for Papers: Special Issues on Systematic and Meta Studies in Open Online and Distance Education

The ecosystem of education in general and Open Online Distance Education in particular is evolving and transforming due to both rapid developments in technology and changes in the socio-economic context. In order to understand these changes, we think that we are at a time when it is important to evaluate the current situation from a holistic perspective and to plan the future by looking at the past. In this context, Open Praxis journal will prioritize systematic literature review, scoping review, meta-analysis and meta-synthesis studies in its 2025 issues.

Within the scope of this call, relevant studies can be conducted on any subject within the scope of Open Praxis journal. These are:

  • Open education
  • Lifelong learning
  • Open and distance learning
  • Distance education
  • Online learning
  • Educational technology
  • Generative AI

Our expectation in related studies is to have a critical perspective, to analyze the past as well as future trends. Especially in systematic review studies, it is expected to present in-depth findings such as research themes instead of descriptive findings drawn from the database such as the frequency of the number of publications, the distribution of publications by country, the most cited studies.

Accepted papers will be published in regular issues in 2025. For research topics or other inquiries, please contact to Editor-in-Chief Dr. Aras Bozkurt.
