DUZ Academic Publishers decided a few months ago, together with our editors, that our publication Internationalisation of Higher Education – Developments in the European Higher Education Area and Worldwide should be peer-reviewed in the future. To ensure a higher quality of academic content, having articles peer-reviewed before their publication is an important step for academic journals.
The transition will start with the second issue that will be published in June 2020. We use a platform called Manuscript Manager that helps us organise and automate the whole process; authors can submit their manuscripts directly on the platform, peer reviewers can then be invited and share their feedback also via Manuscript Manager.
In order to be able to implement this process in the next months, we need your support as authors and/or as peer reviewers.
We are seeking experts from the field of internationalisation of higher education with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests to assist in reviewing articles for the journal. Reviewers will be asked to evaluate articles and make publishing recommendations (which will then go to the editorial board for final approval).
If you are a practitioner or a policymaker in the field of internationalisation of higher education and/or working on internationalisation processes, you might want to share your research results in our journal. The publication covers a broad range of topics in the context of internationalisation: governance, leadership and management; funding; internationalisation strategies and activities; quality assurance, etc.
Please feel free to submit your idea, abstract or article via email.
You can find the current deadlines and calls for papers as well as the author guidelines and information about the scope of the publication and the submission process here.
