Journal overview

The Journal of Continuing Higher Education
( JCHE) strives to support continuing higher education by serving as a forum for the reporting and exchange of information based on research, observations, and experience relevant to the field. 

JCHE serves the leaders, administrators, faculty, and staff who work with adult/nontraditional/post-traditional students or provide continuing education within higher education. These students are often employed, may study online or attend as commuters, and are likely to be transfer students. They are served through credit and noncredit offerings in both traditional and innovative formats (i.e., online, off-campus, accelerated, etc.).

We are currently seeking submission of major articles (current research, theoretical models, conceptual treatments) of up to 7,000 words on the following topics:

• Adult and nontraditional students, including veterans

• Students who are served by adult and continuing higher education organizations

• Organization and administration of continuing higher education

• Development and implementation of new continuing higher education program initiatives

• Programs and services designed to support continuing higher education (undergraduate, graduate, certificate, degree and noncredit) students

• Research within continuing higher education (undergraduate, graduate, certificate, degree, online and non-credit ) and related fields

• Assessment of continuing higher education program outcomes

• Social justice issues within continuing higher education

• Diversity/Equity/Inclusion (DEI) issues in continuing higher education

• Design and implementation of effective online and hybrid teaching in continuing higher education

• Use of technology to advance program design, teaching and learning in continuing higher education

• Continuing higher education's role in preparing for the job impact of AI and/or robotics

The journal also encourages the following types of submissions:

"Ideas in Practice" articles of up to 5,000 words. These articles contain descriptions of new, innovative, and successful programs or practices. The programs or practices should be replicable and of significance to the profession. Authors must include an example of how to replicate. We welcome a literature base for the articles in this category. These articles undergo the same peer review process as research articles. Authors are encouraged to provide links to any relevant video content.

• Book reviews of current publications in the field—prospective authors are advised to consult with the editor prior to preparing book reviews to obtain the specific review guidelines.

Peer Review Policy: All major and Ideas in Practice articles in this journal have undergone anonymous double anonymized and editorial review. Inquiries should be directed to Editor Dr. Walter Pearson
