We are increasingly no longer in a world where digital technology and media is separate, virtual, 'other' to a 'natural' human and social life, and education is often at the forefront of these trends. Journals engaged with technology and education tend to view the research field as concerned with the 'effects' of digital media and other technologies on the existing activities of teaching, learning in education, thus continuing to assume a clear division between an authentic educational practice and the imposition of an external, and novel, technology. However, during the past years, we are witnessing a rapid growth in number of academic books and articles dealing (explicitly and implicitly) with education and research in and for the postdigital age. Postdigital Science and Education fills the gap in the scholarly community as the first academic journal in education, as well as in the humanities and the social sciences, with an explicit focus to postdigital themes and research approaches. It is an exciting hub for a growing body of scholarship in the field and enables communication, dissemination, and community building for researchers, authors, and students. If you have any questions about the journal and how to submit, please contact the EiC, Petar Jandric, at email@example.com.

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
The purpose of this special issue is therefore to critically examine the relationship between digital technologies and the learning spaces of higher education. With the aim of addressing this question from a range of cultural, global, disciplinary and thematic contexts, we use a broad definition of a learning space as any setting where learning activity takes place
In this call we would like to hear your (re)-definitions of Networked Learning, and your ideas about Networked Learning, as they apply to theory and practice. We are intrigued to read responses both from people who see themselves as newcomers to the field of Networked Learning and from those who identify as old-timers within this field. We would like especially to encourage submissions by authors who identify with some aspects of the spirit and purpose of Networked Learning but who do not (yet) label themselves and their work in this way.
In September 2019 Postdigital Science and Education has sponsored the Higher Education Institutional Research (HEIR) Conference 2019 ‘Measuring Excellence’ in Higher Education: Approaches and their Impact, and papers developed from selected conference presentations have been lined up for the Special Issue under the same title. The journal is now accepting papers for a special issue on this theme. More info...
