Here is an invitation we’ve received:

NET, an eJournal of Faith-Based Distance Learning is currently receiving paper submissions. NET is a peer-reviewed, online, open access publication sponsored by Faith-Based Online Learning Directors (FOLD). The journal seeks to publish articles that promote distance education at faith-based institutions.

Articles may comprise scholarly research, reports, case studies, best practices, reviews, essays, and other related works. Due to the nature of a rolling publication date, Net accepts submissions continuously.  For priority peer-review, submissions for the 2018 edition (issue 2) should be submitted as soon as possible.
