A call for studies on digital reading and reading strategies!

News |

Which reading strategies are used in a digital context and can they make the difference when it comes to reading comprehension or reading motivation in a digital reading environment? That's what we're exploring in our new meta-analysis. Your (un)published study can help us!

Have you conducted an (un)published study that deals with reading strategies in a digital reading environment? Then send us your work! Whether it's a conference paper, dissertation, report, manuscript, or dataset, every contribution is welcome and helps us build up as large of a database as possible.

Your submission could be eligible if it meets the following criteria:

  • Use of a pre-post control design
  • Conducted in the context of digital reading (regardless of subject, e.g., biology or history)
  • Inclusion of a treatment group using a reading strategy in a digital reading environment compared to a comparison group learning without a reading strategy in a digital reading environment
  • Conducted in a school or university context
  • Had at least one student reading outcome as the dependent variable
  • Published/conducted between the year 2000 and the present

Our meta-analysis aims to determine whether students who use targeted reading strategies in a digital reading environment differ in reading comprehension and reading motivation from students who read without reading strategies within a digital environment.
