Call for Papers: Special Issue of CS Ed for Doctoral Research

CALL FOR PAPERS

THE JOURNAL OF COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION

SPECIAL ISSUE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION:
DOCTORAL RESEARCH IN COMPUTING EDUCATION
JUNE 2014

Guest Editor:
Allison Elliott Tew, University of Washington Tacoma
Submission Deadline: November 15, 2013
Journal Information: http://www.informaworld.com/cse

Research undertaken in pursuit of a doctorate in any discipline is
important because it is the first work of the next generation of
researchers and highlights the most promising directions for the field.
Doctoral research in our field is particularly interesting because the
researchers have a unique perspective.  Much of the research in computer
science education is undertaken by teaching-active faculty.  Doctoral
students have the opportunity to reflect on our field from the
perspective of studying the teaching and learning practice, often apart
from being the actual teacher or learner. Thus, doctoral research offers
a compelling lens from which to view the computing discipline.

The guest editor invites authors to submit manuscripts for a special
issue devoted to doctoral dissertation research on areas pertaining to
computer science education.  This issue will feature doctoral research
that reports novel contributions to the field of computer science
education and meets high academic standards. Manuscripts should include
a description of the problem, appropriate background research, method of
data collection and analyses, findings, open problems, and future
research agenda.

Full papers will feature doctoral work completed within the past two
years.  It is anticipated that these articles will be on the order of
5,000 to 8,000 words. Shorter articles, between 2,000 and 4,000 words,
introducing well developed doctoral research that is not yet completed
can also be published.

Total length of the manuscript must be indicated, including word number
equivalents for illustrations, tables, figures, and charts. Papers must
contain an abstract summary of about 150 words, briefly summarizing the
essential contents.

Prospective authors are invited to send email indicating their intention
to submit a manuscript to the guest editor of the special issue, Allison
Elliott Tew (aetew@u.washington.edu). General questions may also be sent
to The Journal of Computer Science Education editors, Sally Fincher or
Laurie Murphy (CSE.Editors@gmail.com).
