Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement

The mission of the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement (JHEOE) is to serve as the premier peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal to advance theory and practice related to all forms of outreach and engagement between higher education institutions and communities.

This includes highlighting innovative endeavors; critically examining emerging issues, trends, challenges, and opportunities; and reporting on studies of impact in the areas of public service, outreach, engagement, extension, engaged research, community-based research, community-based participatory research, action research, public scholarship, service-learning, and community service.



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.
