 *Problem-Based Learning Crosses Disciplines
A new educational journal, *The Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based
Learning* (*IJPBL*), edited by Peggy A. Ertmer, Associate Professor of
Educational Technology, and Alexius Smith Macklin, Associate Professor of
Library Science (both at Purdue), was launched March 2006. This quarterly
published, peer-reviewed journal seeks to challenge, stimulate, and provoke
additional research in the area of problem-based learning (PBL).

*IJPBL* offers a forum for problem-based learning research across
disciplines. This scholarly journal publishes the most relevant information
about problem-based learning pedagogy and is the first of its kind in this
exciting field. Articles inside *IJPBL* offer readers instruction and
insights into the best new teaching and learning practices in a variety of
disciplines. *IJPBL* is filled with challenging and practical research that
may be used by educators in numerous disciplines to implement problem-based
learning in their own classrooms. *IJPBL* will also be of great help to all
those who wish to use problem-based learning more effectively in their K-12
and post-secondary classrooms.

*IJPBL* is published quarterly by Purdue University Press in both a
paperback and online version. Additionally, the premier addition may be
accessed free-of-charge on the University Press website. URL: <
