About the Journal

The Journal of Praxis in Higher Education 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 with a view to informing attempts to transform it in socially just and sustainable ways.

NEW UPDATE Call for papers: Special Issue "What is academic citizenship"


Academics and wider publics alike highlight the conflicting and often frustrating demands that are levelled against the university academic: be engaged in society, be truth-seeking and objective, be problem-solving, be innovative and entrepreneurial, be independent, and contribute!

With this special issue, we aim to create a collection of thought-provoking essays about where these complexities leave the figure of ‘the academic citizen’ and about which futures can be imagined for academic citizenship. This implies many additional questions, such as who qualifies as an academic citizen, what society one is a citizen of, and how the notions of ‘academic’, ‘society’ and ‘citizens’ relate.

We welcome contributions that inquire into the future(s) of academic citizenship in a university which will not go back to what it was in an often-idealised past. We hope for a number of short academic essays of max. 3000 words; thought-provoking pieces which pointedly discuss important problems of academic citizenship, or new ideas for academic citizenship. The essays are stylistically freer than an academic article and references should be kept in the range of 10-15.    Read more about NEW UPDATE Call for papers: Special Issue "What is academic citizenship"

Diversity, equality, and inclusion are core values within higher education, but what do these values represent when students’ and scholars’ practices are enacted within what Barnett (2000) defines as a world that is “supercomplex” in its character? This issue includes four exiting papers and one book review that highlight some of these values, practices and enactments.
