Research into Higher Education Abstracts
ISSN (printed): 0034-5326. ISSN (electronic): 1467-5862.
Research into Higher Education Abstracts exists to propagate knowledge about, and encourage discussion of significant research into, higher education. Published by Carfax Publishing on behalf of the Society for Research into Higher Education, it provides a regular survey of international periodicals relevant to the theory and practice of higher education and also offers a selective coverage of books and monographs. More than 600 abstracts are produced each year. They are grouped under eight headings; national systems and comparative studies, institutional management, curriculum (including subject studies with wider relevance), research, students, staff, finance and physical resources and contributory studies (including research design and methodologies). A key word subject index in each volume allows easy reference to those which cross category boundaries. An author index and a list of journals, with addresses, from which abstracts are drawn are also included in each issue, with a cumulative index annually. This index will include all countries that provide a key context for work reported (except the UK and USA), subject context where relevant, the research methods (e.g. focus groups, surveys, action research) and instruments used, theoretical bases, and key themes from sections of the abstracts other than the one where any entry appears. Research into Higher Education Abstracts gives a major emphasis to work published in, or dealing with, provision in Europe and the British Commonwealth, reflecting the identities of its operational base. It will also cover selected texts from elsewhere in the world, including the USA. Readers may wish to note the existence of a similar journal Higher Education Abstracts, published by Claremont Graduate School, California, USA, which gives emphasis to work published in the USA. The editor welcomes suggestions for journals to abstract to extend our coverage in appropriate academic and geographic domains. Offers to provide such abstracts are even more welcome.
