Planning for Higher Education invites well-written articles about important trends and issues that could influence academic planning and management, about novel or effective planning techniques, and about applied research of relevance to educational decision making. Reviews of books of interest to higher education planners are also welcome.
We welcome timely submissions of practical, actionable content on a variety of topics related to integrated planning throughout the year.
Five manuscript types are welcomed for publishing in Planning:
