The Journal of Literacy and Technology calls for submissions as the

throughout the calendar year rather than set dates. The editors believe
that publishing articles as they come in better reflects The Journal of

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.
