The Commons is increasingly becoming a publication platform for academic journals. The Commons team works closely with the publishers to find suitable WordPress themes and plugins, coordinate domain mapping, and troubleshoot issues.
Our open access publishing platform comes with a built-in social layer. The Commons front page can be used to advertise new journal issues, list blog posts, and provide a discussion platform that keeps the conversation going via comments and tweets. Your My Commons page aggregates journal articles, comments, and news about upcoming issues once you “follow” the site.
Editors can use groups on the Commons to collaborate on new issues and share reflections on manuscripts.
Contact our team to learn how the Commons can support your publishing project.
The growing number of academic journals now hosted on the Commons includes:
Founded in 1989 and previously edited by Professors Vera Mowry Roberts, Jane Bowers, and David Savran, this widely acclaimed journal is now edited by Professors Naomi J. Stubbs and James F. Wilson. JADT publishes thoughtful and innovative work by leading scholars on theatre, drama, and performance in the U.S. – past and present. Provocative articles provide valuable insight and information on the heritage of American theatre, as well as its continuing contribution to world literature and the performing arts.
The mission of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (ISSN 2166-6245) is to promote open scholarly discourse around critical and creative uses of digital technology in teaching, learning, and research. Educational institutions have often embraced instrumentalist conceptions and market-driven implementations of technology that overdetermine its uses in academic environments. Such approaches underestimate the need for critical engagement with the integration of technological tools into pedagogical practice. The JITP will endeavor to counter these trends by recentering questions of pedagogy in our discussions of technology in higher education. The journal will also work to change what counts as scholarship—and how it is presented, disseminated, and reviewed—by allowing contributors to develop their ideas, publish their work, and engage their readers using multiple formats.
We are committed first and foremost to teaching and learning, and intend that the journal itself—both in process and in product—provide opportunities to reveal, reflect on, and revise academic publication and classroom practice.
Theory, Research, and Action in Urban Education (TRAUE) is an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal published by doctoral students and recent graduates of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. This journal is one of very few that features original work by emerging scholars. TRAUE also serves as a forum in which youth, public school students, educators, community groups, and parents debate issues of educational practice and policy.
We publish articles, reviews, policy briefs, and notes from the field that critically and politically engage with issues of equity in urban schools and communities. We value theory, research, and action that is political and undertaken in collaboration with schools and communities. Our mission is to develop and share tools for imagining and enacting sustainable, systemic educational and social equity. Submissions to this journal should advance social and educational equity, have a strong theoretical grounding, and be well written with fully developed ideas.
