The main aim of the Asian Journal of Distance Education (AsianJDE) is to disseminate scholarly works and information useful to researchers and practitioners in the growing field of distance education in Asia. The Journal also aims to provide a forum for discussions within and directly relating to Asia, and so elicits Asian local theoretical and practical solutions to address local concerns. The AsianJDE has a specific focus on the Asian context. The Journal publishes double-peer reviewed scholarly Articles, plus other papers such as Focus Reports on a bounded region or an institution, and Work-in-Progress. Other items include a detailed Calendar of Conferences and Events in Asia, Comments (a moderated discussion forum on previously published articles), Asian Abstracts and others. Additional resources for all those interested in Asia will be available online. Authors from around the world are invited to submit Articles and other information that satisfy the Journal’s aims of relevance to Asia.
