The Journal of Literacy and Technology calls for submissions as the
journal publishes two or three times a year, using rolling deadlines
throughout the calendar year rather than set dates. The editors believe
that publishing articles as they come in better reflects The Journal of
Literacy and Technology's mission as an online-only peer-reviewed
academic journal.
 
Submit article manuscripts for consideration at any time. The Journal of
Literacy and Technology currently publishes research articles and book
reviews two or three times a year.
