Policy of Higher Education

HIGHER EDUCATION is an international journal in the multidisciplinary field of higher education research. Its policy is to give priority to papers that are relevant to the international higher education research and policy community.

It publishes articles that represent significant advances --conceptually, theoretically or methodologically--in the international higher education literature on the topic concerned. It welcomes both empirical studies on higher education which may involve cross-national, cross-sectoral, or relatively large data-sets (e.g. draw on data from several institutions or data over an extended time-span), and smaller-scale research and scholarly papers that provide considerable insights and advancements in our understanding of higher education.
