What is GLOKALde?

GLOKALde is an international peer-reviewed semi-annually e-journal dedicated to research on teaching in higher education. International in scope, this scholarly e-journal publishes refereed articles focusing on the issues and challenges of providing theory, research and information services to global learners in any kind of education or open learning applications. The journal will strive to meet the teaching needs of practitioners and educators by providing a forum for the discussion of extended learning strategies, policies and practices, and trends in information technology as they impact the delivery of students. Articles may be theoretical, philosophical and/or quantitative analyses of education/open learning and teaching issues, and may take the form of case studies, research studies or general interest reports. Book reviews, conference reports, cases, literature reviews, news items, editors' notes, announcements of conferences and publications and letters to the editor are also welcomed.


The journal is planning to extend its readership by reaching every part of the world. It will focus on different regions by allocating much more space to contributors from the regions of North Africa, the Middle East, the New Turkic Republics, the Baltic Countries and Eastern European Countries. This strategy will be realized by sharing experiences on effective use of education in both formal and non-formal education fields.


GLOKALde does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sex, national or ethnic origin, or physical limitations. This includes policies and procedures related to editorial membership of the Board, the educational program and personnel practices, admissions, scholarships, authors and readers.

Open Access Policy

We provide immediate open access to all content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Readers can copy and distribute the published work in any medium and format; remix, transform, and build upon the work along with the original author.

Peer Review Policy and Review Process

All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff. To save time for authors and peer-reviewers, only those papers that seem most likely to meet our editorial criteria are sent for formal review. Those papers judged by the editors to be of insufficient general interest or otherwise inappropriate are returned to the author with a clear reason on why the manuscript did not meet the journal’s requirements. Manuscripts judged to be of potential interest to our readership are sent for formal blind peer review, typically to two reviewers, but sometimes more if special advice is needed. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewers' data. The review process usually takes 4-6 weeks since submission time.
