JPHE is a fully online, open access journal dedicated to high quality research on, or related to, praxis within higher education teaching, learning, research, and activities aimed at impact on wider society (e.g., policy influence, activist research, or capacity building). In an era characterised by internationalisation, increasing accountability, strong ties between universities and national and regional economies, and imperatives concerning sustainable development, university communities are under great pressure to meet ever-increasing and often competing demands. The moral-political dimension of higher education and attention to universities’ civic responsibilities are arguably sometimes forgotten in the daily struggle to meet such demands. This journal has been established with this concern in mind, and seeks to promote continued debate and exploration of some of the key responsibilities of, and tensions pervading, higher education (see the JPHE’s editorial, Vol 1, Issue, 1) with a view to informing attempts to transform it in socially just and sustainable ways.
