Aims and Scope 

Higher education around the world has become a major topic of discussion, debate, and controversy, as a range of political, economic, social, and technological pressures result in a myriad of changes at all levels. But the quality and quantity of critical dialogue and research and their relationship with practice remains limited. 
This internationally peer-reviewed journal addresses this shortfall by focusing on the scholarship and practice of teaching and learning and higher education and covers:
  • Higher education teaching, learning, curriculum, assessment, policy, management, leadership, and related areas
  • Digitization, internationalization, and democratization of higher education, and related areas such as lifelong and lifewide learning
  • Innovation, change, and reflections on current practices
  • Issues around teaching and learning, especially those discussions which seek to inform practice are encouraged, ensuring the journal has validity and relevance in the fast-change higher education landscape
"The idea and ideal behind The Journal of Applied Research in Higher Education – to promote improved practice by encouraging informed and meaningful debate into pedagogic and interrelated matters in higher education – is precisely what makes it such a valuable resource for all of us in higher education."
Dr. John M. Carfora
Associate Provost for Research Advancement and Compliance
