Author Guidelines

Articles submitted for consideration to International Higher Education (IHE) should be emailed to ihe@bc.edu. IHE also welcomes correspondence to discuss potential articles in advance of sending in any submission.

IHE is not a scholarly journal, but rather a periodical that seeks to inform its readers through short well-written articles, written in a lively style and emphasizing analysis. Authors are encouraged to include relevant statistics where needed, although not in tables or graphs. Also, references and citations should not be included in submitted articles.

IHE articles are typically 1,000 words in length; they are written concisely and to the point.

Please include several subheadings to highlight the main sections of your article. To be most effective, the subheadings should be very short—just two or three words.

Please avoid presenting material in the form of numbered or bulleted lists.

Each article should be accompanied by a short abstract and a list of keywords.

All articles written for IHE are edited before final publication. However, authors should take great care with writing style when preparing their articles for submission.
