I've published several times in Assessment and Evaluation in Higher Education - http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/02602938.asp
and in Innovations in Education & Teaching International - http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/14703297.asp
Both have rather long publication delays.  I would like to publish in ALT-J but the lack of impact factor means I am not able to due to pressure of REF (this also applies to several other journals I have published in in the past).

Yep two good suggestions ALan had forgotten about those. The issue of long delays is such a problem and afraid I feel the same about ALT-J - the REF/impact thing is going to really influence where people publish. I can't help feeling there are just too many journals and the whole thing needs a bit of a shake up....

I must admit when I moved to this area from mathematics/crypto I was quite surprised by how many journals there were and how the divisions between them weren't as clear as I was used to. In Mathematics, there are essentially two clearly top international journals, a handful of good local journals and then journals focused on very specific subfields and that's pretty much it. The lead times are better in edtech though, believe me :) In crypto, it's certain conference proceedings that really count not journals, precisely I think because of the lead time issue.

Yes me too - when i was in Chemistry there was only a handful of journals and a clear pecking order. Still think the lead time needs to be much quicker given the nature of the field and how quickly it changes!

Indeed loads of journals, and open journals are quickly extending the list. Among them, I often consult articles in IRRODL - International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning (www.irrodl.org, chief editor Terry Anderson), which provides relevant topic-led issues and overall has an authentic worldwide perspective. In one of the last issues there is an article that you can find interesting for this cloud:
IRRODL (Vol. 10, No. 3), Elbeck, M. and Mandernach, J. (2009) ‘Journals for Computer-Mediated Learning: Publications of Value for the Online Educator
http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/article/view/676/1268


The authors attempt to “‘to determine a comprehensive listing and relative value ranking of scholarly journals whose content informs online educators and motivates scholarship”.
