HLRC is an open-access journal with an international focus published by Walden University. It is indexed in Scopus and is listed in other indexes and abstracting services. Its aim is to disseminate both high-quality research and teaching best practices in tertiary education across cultures and disciplines. HLRC connects the ways research and best practice contribute to the public good and impact the communities that educators serve. ISSN 2157-6254 (Online)Higher Learning Research Communications.
HLRC IS LOOKING FOR MANUSCRIPTS RELATED TO THE COVID-19 IMPACT ON HIGHER EDUCATION.
Colleges and universities around the world have closed campus classrooms as the coronavirus has spread. In order to adapt to this new situation, higher education institutions have migrated to entirely online classes.
But this raises questions:
- Are institutions prepared to switch all of their classes online?
- How has the learning process changed for students and the teaching process for professors?
- What has higher education learned from this experience?
The HLRC journal, indexed in Scopus, requests papers, which include editorials, research articles, research briefs, critical literature reviews, and essays, that contribute to a better understanding of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted higher education. Given that COVID-19 continues to impact higher education and is expected to do so over the upcoming year, we are extending our submission deadline to December 31, 2020, in order to provide timely information. The Special Issue will be published in 2021, but the HLRC publishes upon acceptance, and your manuscript will appear in published form once it completes the editorial process.
Please see the HLRC Guidelines for Authors for submission information.
