The International Journal of Serious Games
The IJSG publishes original, peer-reviewed, scientific research articles addressing theoretical, experimental and operational aspects in the areas related to design, development, engineering, deployment and assessment of Serious Games (SGs).
IJSG aims at being a high-level reference point for a growing academic and industrial community, providing innovative research ideas and application results, reporting on pressing challenges and leading-edge research.
The journal encourages submission of manuscripts that enhance foundations of game-based learning and SG design, present new technological solutions aimed to improve teaching and learning, and/or provide user studies about deployment of SGs in instructional or training settings.
All papers should advance the state of the art. Empirical studies are strongly encouraged. Papers may be one of several types: research paper; tutorial/survey; research note/short paper; addendum/corrections. Additional material can be added as software/algorithms; datasets.
By publishing high quality scientific and technological research papers, the IJSG intends to address the need for scientific and engineering methods for building games as effective learning tools.
