Yet, several of the major journals in the discipline such as TJ (1961),JSCM (1965), IJLM (1970), and IJPDLM (1970) have recently or will soon celebrate 50 years in press.

The IJLM will represent a break from traditionally published scholarly research," says Ellen Faran, Director of MIT Press.
We hope that the collaborative nature of the IJLM will fuel a creative and productive dialogue about learning and media among educators, researchers, and policymakers, strengthening the academic and applied field that is emerging around learning and media.
The IJLM is the second MacArthur Foundation-funded collaboration between MIT Press and MITE.
That's how MITE came to be formed and that's why we participate in initiatives like the MacArthur Series and IJLM, as well as our own projects like the National Repository of Online Courses and the free, public access education website HippoCampus.
Co-edited by David Buckingham of the University of London Institute of Education, Tara McPherson of the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, and Katie Salen of Parsons The New School For Design and the Institute of Play, the IJLM will retain the peer review process of a traditional academic journal while also providing a forum for topical online dialogues.
