Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Science, published by Berghahn, is currently inviting submissions for Volume 5 (2012) and Volume 6 (2013).
Aims and scope
This peer-reviewed journal uses the social sciences to reflect critically on learning and teaching in the changing context of higher education.
The journal invites students and staff to explore their education practices in the light of changes in their institutions, national higher education policies, the strategies of international agencies and developments associated with the so-called international knowledge economy.
The disciplines covered include politics and international relations, anthropology, sociology, criminology, social policy, cultural studies and educational studies.
The readership spans practitioners, researchers and students. It includes undergraduates and postgraduates interested in analysing their experience at university, newly appointed staff taking a qualification in learning and teaching, staff of learning and teaching units, experienced teachers in higher education and researchers on university reform.
Submissions should be original and not be under consideration by any other publication. Manuscripts should be written for an audience with a basic knowledge of the area, and should be in a succinct, disciplined and precise style, avoiding jargon and convoluted constructions wherever possible. Contributions are likely to fall into one of four categories:
- Articles (5000-8000 words) extending knowledge through original research and scholarship
- Essays (3000-4000 words) offering new perspectives and stimulating debate
- Reports (1000-2500 words) of research in progress and innovations in practice
- Reviews (600-1000 words) of relevant recent publications, electronic media and software and conferences
