SCOPUS eLearning and ODL Journal Rankings

The SCImago (by SCOPUS) journal rankings for 2017 have recently been released. I have gone through the Education category and listed the journals that are relevant for research in e-learning and open and distance learning. The list is organised by quartile and each journal shows the impact factor or journal ranking and whether it is an open access journal. The SJR ranks journals by number of citations and their average prestige per article.
