Practitioner Research in Higher Education:  Assessment Special Edition



The Practitioner Research in Higher Education journal publishes research and evaluation papers that contribute to the understanding of theory, policy and practice in teaching and supporting learning. The journal aims to disseminate evaluations and research of professional practice which give voice to all of the participants in higher education and which are based on ethical and collaborative approaches to practitioner enquiry.

The on-line, open access journal will publish a special issue comprising papers from the sixth International AHE Conference.  All those who presented at the conference via a research paper, practice exchange or poster are invited to submit an article for this special edition. It is important to note the author guidelines for the journal, including the requirement for all papers to be underpinned by critical engagement with relevant literature. The deadline for submission of papers is 29 Sept 2017.

Practitioner Research in Higher Education is useful in building your research impact because as well as being fully peer reviewed it is open access. Papers that are approved through the peer review process are then published under a commons licence agreement. This means that in addition to the journal open access website you are free to upload a copy of your paper to research network sites, to your personal website and to your university repository.
