Submission Information

Manuscripts that support the advancement of learning in higher education are actively sought for publication in The Journal of Learning in Higher Education. Articles that report on innovative practices and articles that research theoretical issues in learning are equally desired. Additionally, papers that take a philosophical perspective on the state of learning yesterday, today and/or tomorrow.

Review Process

Papers will be blind/peer reviewed and judged as either Accept, Revise and Accept, Revise and Resubmit, or Reject. Authors will normally be notified of the status of their paper within a month of submission.

Submission Deadline

None, all accepted manuscripts will be published in the next available edition.


A submission fee of $25 must accompany all submissions. A publication fee of $20 per published page is assessed once a paper is accepted.
