Do you feel you have a contribution to make for how theory and methods are used in higher education research?

The editors of the book series “Theory and Method in Higher Education Research”, Prof. Jeroen Huisman (Ghent University, Belgium) and Prof Malcolm Tight (Lancaster University, UK), are now seeking a few additional contributions to complete the 2016 volume.

The first two volumes of this series were published by Emerald in 2013 and 2014 as part of the series International Perspectives on Higher Education Research. Their success persuaded the publishers to start a separate series, Theory and Method in Higher Education Research, publishing one volume a year. The first volume of this series is now with the publishers and will come out later in 2015. The second volume is in the process of being put together for publication in 2016.

Expressions of interest in contributing a chapter should be emailed to both editors.

Deadline for abstracts, 30th of November.
