Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Cyber Behavior, Psychology and Learning (IJCBPL) is to identify learners’ online behavior based on the theories in human psychology, define online education phenomena as explained by the social and cognitive learning theories and principles, and interpret the complexity of cyber learning. IJCBPL offers a multi-disciplinary approach that incorporates the findings from brain research, biology, psychology, human cognition, developmental theory, sociology, motivation theory, and social behavior. This journal welcomes both quantitative and qualitative studies using experimental design, as well as ethnographic methods to understand the dynamics of cyber learning.
