Best Article Award Announcement
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management
The Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management’s Best Article Award is awarded annually to the best article from the previous calendar. The Award and $500 prize is announced at the Tertiary Education Management Conference. The journal publisher, Routledge, kindly make the best article freely accessible. The runners up will also be freely accessible for three months.
The best article is determined based on four criteria:
- Relevance to the journal’s Aims and Scope;
- Style and readability;
- Quality of the research process;
- Potential impact to the academic or practitioner community.
The selection process involves the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor shortlisting their top three articles separately, leading to a final short list of between three and six articles. The Journal’s Best Article Award Selection Committee includes three members of the journal’s editorial board (including at least one academic and one practitioner) and each rates the short-listed articles on the above criteria on a four point scale. Selection of the best article, from the short-list compiled by the editors, will be informed by the panel’s ranking of the short-list and comments. Should there be any significant differences in the panel’s rankings, or other discrepancies, final selection will be made by the editors in consultation with the panel. A citation for the award presentation will be based on the committee’s comments.
