In this page, we have collected links to scientific journals that are potentially relevant to the students and researchers in the edTech research group at the School of Computing, UEF.

Please inform Jarkko Suhonen (jarkko.suhonen@[REMOVE_SPAM]], if you think that the list needs updating.


For students and staff of UEF. Most of the journals listed on the page are available to UEF students and staff. Inside the UEF network, you should have direct access via the journal website or database. Outside of the UEF network, you should be able to gain access to the journals via UEF Primo

We have divided the journals into seven categories.

  • design and design research
  • educational technology
  • online, open and distance learning
  • computing education & technology education
  • ICT for development
  • misc

For each of the categories, the journals are sub-categorized according to the Finnish Publication forum classification (JUFO). The JUFO classification has three levels: 1 = basic; 2 = leading; 3 = top. For those journals that are included in the InCites Journal Citation Report, the Journal Impact Factor (IF) is mentioned. The label Open Access indicates that the articles published in the journal are openly available.
