Christian Higher Education Call for Submissions

Christian Higher Education

Christian Higher Education: An International Journal of Research, Theory, and Practice is a peer-reviewed journal focused on the study and practice of Christian higher education. International, interdenominational, and interdisciplinary in scope, the journal publishes original research, meta-analyses, analytical essays, book reviews, and descriptions of best practices that are informed by empirical research.

The primary aim of the journal is to expand empirical knowledge about Christian higher education; a secondary aim is to inform best practice within Christian colleges and universities. Articles are selected for their significance to Christian higher education, the rigor of their scholarship and/or the logical development of relevant theory and practice, and their clarity and style. The journal welcomes a variety of scholarly viewpoints and fresh perspectives.

Manuscripts should conclude with a section on Implications for Practice directed toward practitioners in the field and a section on Suggestions for Further Research that delineates where future scholars might continue the scholarly trajectory reflected in the article.
