Equity and Access to Higher Education: Special Issue Call for Papers

Submission deadline
30 June 2020

Perspectives, a quarterly review published for the UK Association of University Administrators (AUA) by Taylor and Francis, aims to support the objectives of the AUA: to advance and assist in the advancement of education by fostering sound methods of leadership, management and administration in further and higher education by education, training, and other means.  We define this broadly and we publish work written by both administrators and academics.  Our criteria for acceptance, in addition to the integrity of scholarship, highlight ‘practicality’.  We want to be of use to practitioners.

Our journal is planning a themed issue on Equity and Access to Higher Education. We are looking both for critical analysis of case studies that will help draw out lessons for readers, and for empirical studies in this area.  We welcome submissions from authors who can use their own experience to provide illustrations of the general points that they wish to make.

We encourage prospective authors to take a broad view of the topic.  Our field of interest covers all aspects of the topic.

We will especially welcome submissions from AUA members but this call is addressed to all those who work for the advancement of higher education through the robust application of professional knowledge, skills and practices. We would also be interested in comparative international work.

Submission guidelines

Papers should normally be around 3,500 words in length, but longer or shorter papers may be considered.  Online submission is via the ScholarOne Manuscripts site.  We would welcome prior submission of 300 word outlines (to be sent to one of the Principal Editors, for consideration for this Special Issue). 

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere.  All submissions will be subject to our normal acceptance procedures.

Because we are committed to the enhancement of practice, we encourage new authors to respond to this call. 

Please send your outlines to: d.law@keele.ac.uk. We hope to publish the themed issue either as our final edition of 2020 or in 2021.
