Distance Education is the journal of ODLAA Inc. It is edited by Associate Professor Som Naidu and published by Taylor & Francis. The journal is managed by a sub-committee of the ODLAA Executive and ODLAA members receive it as a part of their membership.
Distance Education is a peer-reviewed journal. It publishes research and scholarly material in the fields of distance, open and flexible education. It was one of the first journals published to focus exclusively on this area of educational practice, and it remains a primary source of original and scholarly work in the field for practitioners, teachers and students.
