Volume 21(4), December 2017 Now Available

The Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement Volume 21(4), December 2017 is now available. There is much that goes on behind the scenes to produce four issues of JHEOE each year, and as the editorial team wraps up another year of publication, we are particularly reflective about the Journal’s accomplishments due to some forthcoming changes in our operations and management. In this issue, we recognize co-editor Lorilee Sandmann, who will be stepping down from her editorship at the end of this calendar year. This issue is dedicated to Lorilee for her scholarly contributions to and leadership of the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement. As we look at the state of JHEOE, it remains a strong, vibrant, and relevant publication that has attracted new audiences and scholarly voices under Lorilee’s leadership, and we are indebted to her. As Lorilee has shown us over the years, the role of an editor is similar to a gardener who must tend her plots with care, consistency, and expertise to ensure a healthy harvest. The articles in this issue can only be described as a bountiful harvest of scholarship that explores community engagement and engaged scholarship across a diverse spectrum of practices, methods, and contexts. Such a fruitful harvest is a direct result of Lorilee’s care and tending of the Journal as a place where engaged scholarship and engaged scholars are nurtured and subsequently flourish. We thank you, Lorilee—our master gardener—for your care and tending of our ideas, knowledge, and voices, and for planting so many seeds through your scholarship and leadership that will continue to bear fruit in year to come.

Trimester Review Process


The JHEOE editorial team is committed to continuously improve our internal processes to ensure we are handling our authors’ scholarly work in the most efficient and effective way.  Therefore, we are introducing a trimester review process allowing for a more concentrated effort to respond more quickly to our authors and expedite the peer review process.  Most importantly, it serves our mission “to serve as the premier peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal to advance theory and practice” related to community engagement.  Although you may submit a manuscript at any time, the review due dates are February 1, June 1, and October 1. You will find more detail in the submission guidelines.
