Editorial: Going for gold: Research in Learning Technology makes the switch to a fully Open Access publishing model

Frances Bell, Seb Schmoller, Rhona Sharpe


The publication of issue 20(1) of Research in LearningTechnology(RLT) is a landmark for the Association for Learning Technology (ALT). It is the first issue since the journal made the switch, on 1 January 2012, to Open Access, and the first with our new publisher Co-Action Publishing. Traditionally, research journals have been published under a subscription model, whereby subscribers (individuals or institutional libraries) receive access in return for payment, sometimes as part of their membership of a scholarly society, as has been the case for ALT.
