About The Journal

Malaysian Journal of Learning and Instruction (MJLI) is abstracted in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) since 2016 and Scopus 2012. It is a double-blind peer reviewed, international academic journal published biannually (January and July) by Universiti Utara Malaysia. The aims of the journal are to communicate research and stimulate discussion, study and critique of teaching and learning, and to encourage scholarly writing on learning and instruction.

Aims and Scope

Coverage of MJLI includes, but is not limited to critical examination of ecosystems and issues surrounding the processes of meaningful teaching and learning and better educational practices. These could be addressed at micro level (e.g., innovative modes of delivery, instructional design and technology, learning engagement, instructional settings) or at macro level (e.g., motivation, engaging curriculum, impact of socio-psychological and cultural factors on learning).

We welcome original empirical research articles with novel perspectives and/or methodological approaches that would appeal to an international readership. We do not accept unsolicited conceptual and theoretical papers.

MJLI is an open access journal. The electronic full text version of the journal is available free of charge at mjli.uum.edu.my.

Malaysian Journal of Learning and Instruction is recipient for potential journal for Ministry of Higher Education’s CRÈME Award 2019 and Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE)'s current research in Malaysia (CREAM) in 2017.
