Aims & Scope

Academic Perspectives in Higher Education (APHE) is a peer reviewed publication that publishes narrative, theoretical and empirically-based research articles, professional reviews, and reporting on best practices in higher education that are grounded in theory and have implications for professional practice.

Published bi-annually, APHE encourages submission of manuscripts by graduate students and early career scholars from a wide range of academic fields related to higher education including student affairs, community college leadership, anthropology, psychology, sociology, and ethnic/cultural studies.

First authors must be currently enrolled in a graduate degree program or no more than five years removed from graduate school (i.e., early career). More senior scholars, however, may serve as co-authors.

APHE’s audience includes students, faculty, administrators, and educators engaged in research, policy and practice throughout the field of higher education.

APHE publishes three types of articles:

  1. Research papers/scholarly manuscripts
  2. Professional print/media reviews
  3. Reporting on best practices

See Submission Guidelines for more information if you would like to submit your article for publication.

Submission deadline for Spring: January 10
Article review begins February 15

The APHE is a non-profit publication and operates through the voluntary services of board members and editors. No remuneration is provided authors or reviewers.
