Policy Reviews in Higher Education
Policy Reviews in Higher Education aims to open up a space for publishing in-depth accounts of significant areas of policy development affecting higher education internationally. Authors from a range of disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to analyse higher education from fresh perspectives, including drawing on concepts and theories from other academic fields.
Policy here is conceived as relevant to all areas of higher education activity, including transnational education, university governance and leadership, quality assurance and enhancement, academic work, curriculum development and student learning, occurring at the local, regional, national and international levels. Comparative analyses across higher education systems are particularly encouraged
Contributions are invited which are:
- original and provide in-depth analysis
- historically grounded and forward-looking
- reflections on implications for policy broadly
- presented in a style accessible for an international readership
- between 8,000 and 12,000 words
