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.

In the opening line of the first issue of JPHE in 2019, the editorial team posed the following pertinent and critically reflective question: ‘Does the higher education research community really need another research journal?’ (The Editorial Team, 2019, p. 1). In their editorial, they provide a well-argued case for answering this question in the affirmative. The journal’s policy statement also makes a good case as to why JPHE is distinctive defining education as ‘a moral and political activity’ and emphasising the way in which ‘the journal is committed to research aimed at the transformation of existing practices and conditions in higher education.’ (JPHE, 2022, para. 1).
