Call for Articles for the International Journal of Continuing Engineering
Education and Life-Long Learning.
The journal is publishing a special issue on "Engineering eLearning".  It is our
goal to arrive at the best possible overview of sophisticated rationales,
methods approaches and tools to improve Engineering eLearning.  The aim of this
journal special issue is for its audience (practitioners, researchers and
developers) to become more aware of the mistakes made in the past and the good
practice that has developed in the general, broad area of Engineering eLearning
so that future work build on past experience rather than falling foul of the
same traps. This would therefore lean towards the sharing of research in which
the unique properties of eLearning are taken advantage of to provide, in
particular, an improved learning experience for the learner and possible
benefits and payoffs for the tutors and administrators. This would include
systems that foster "community" or allow resources to be shared and customized
by tutors and do not simply replicate more traditional techniques with a limited

The field of "Engineering eLearning" is taken to have a broad definition to
cover, for example, software development as well as the field of general
engineering. The definition would include both education and training. Suitable
topics in Engineering eLearning would include but are not restricted to:

* telematic tools
* CMC & CSCL approaches to education
* training environments
* eLearning and virtual learning environments
* media projects
* training management
* technology in Engineering Mathemarics

The special issue is expected to contain around 8 - 10 articles with a total of
100 pages. A shorter draft (around 2-3 pages) paper should be submitted in
February 2002 and, if accepted, a final paper (of around 10 pages) by June 2002.
The full list of deadlines is given below. All communications and papers should
be sent to Dr. Chris.
Bowerman (see address below).
        Draft paper by  01/03/02
        Acceptance by   15/04/02
        Final papers by 01/06/02
        Publication     01/09/02 - 01/02/03

Formatting Guidelines
Papers should be written in English on A4 or similar sized paper, double-spaced
with a wide left margin. A complete typescript should include, in the following
order: short title, author(s), address(es) (position, department, name of
institution, full postal address), abstract (100-150 words), keywords (ten words
or phrases), biographical notes (100-150 words per author), introduction, text,
acknowledgements, references and notes (in APA format - sequential numbering),
tables, figure captions, figures (numbered sequentially and placed at end of
document). An original plus two copies and an electronic copy (in an industry
standard word processor such as MS Word) should be provided. Papers should not
exceed 15 pages in total length.
