CALL FOR PAPERS

THE JOURNAL OF COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION

SPECIAL ISSUE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION:
DOCTORAL RESEARCH IN COMPUTING EDUCATION
JUNE 2015

Guest Editor: Anthony Robins, University of Otago, New Zealand
Submission Deadline: November 14, 2014
Journal Information: http://www.informaworld.com/cse

Doctoral research in any discipline is important because it explores
and highlights the most promising directions for the field. Within
computer science education, most research is undertaken by active
teachers / practitioners, limiting both the duration and the scope of
potential studies.  Doctoral students are in a position to undertake
substantial research, and to reflect on teaching and learning practice,
often apart from being the current teacher or learner. Thus, doctoral
research offers a powerful lens through which to view our field.

The guest editor invites authors to submit manuscripts for a special
issue devoted to doctoral research in computer science education.
Submissions should contain novel contributions, and meet high academic
standards.

Papers will feature doctoral work in progress or completed within 
the past two years.  Manuscripts should include a description of the 
problem, a review of relevant research, methods of data collection and 
analysis, findings, discussion, and future research agenda. It is 
anticipated that these articles will be on the order of 5,000 to 8,000 
words.  The total length of the manuscript must be indicated, including 
an abstract (of about 150 words), and word number equivalents for
illustrations, tables, figures, and charts.

Prospective authors are invited to send email indicating their
intention to submit a manuscript to the guest editor of the special
issue, Anthony Robins <anth...@cs.otago.ac.nz>. General questions
may also be sent to The Journal of Computer Science Education editors,
Sally Fincher or Laurie Murphy <cse.edit...@gmail.com>.

Please submit manuscripts by email to the guest editor (you should
receive an acknowledgement within a week of submission):
