Call for Manuscripts
The Journal of Continuing Higher Education
The Journal of Continuing Higher Education (JCHE) announces a Call for Manuscripts for its upcoming issues. JCHE strives to support continuing higher education by serving as a peer reviewed forum for the reporting and exchange of information based on research, observations, and professional experience relevant to the field. Issues are published in the winter, spring, and fall. JCHE is published by Routledge.
The Journal of Continuing Higher Education considers four types of articles:
• Major articles—current research, theoretical models, conceptual treatments—of up to 7,000 words on:
• organization and administration of continuing higher education
• development and application of new continuing education program directions
• adult and nontraditional students
• continuing education student programs and services
• research within continuing higher education and related fields
Manuscripts should demonstrate implications for both the theory and practice of continuing higher education.
• “Best Practices” articles of up to 4,000 words. These “Best Practice” articles contain descriptions of new, innovative, and successful programs or practices. The programs or practices should be replicable and of significance to continuing education.
• Book reviews of current publications in the field--prospective authors are advised
to consult with the editor prior to preparing book reviews.
• Opinion pieces of up to 2,000 words addressing issues directly relevant to
continuing higher education.
For best consideration for the Spring 2013 issue, manuscripts should be received by March 15, 2013. Manuscript submission guidelines are available online at http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/title~content=t908610301 or through ACHE’s website: www.ACHEinc.org. Potential authors should feel free to consult with JCHE editor James K. Broomall, University of Delaware. He can be reached at email@example.com or (302) 831-2795.
Please share this announcement with colleagues and graduate students who may be interested in submitting manuscripts to JCHE. The Journal has published outstanding graduate student work in the past.
The stream aims to add a more direct focus on papers that address HRD as a global (macro) phenomenon; e.g. through competing models of management, leadership and talent development offered by large, global consultancy firms and the emergence of a global market for management education; alongside papers which examine more individual and single organisation (micro) based experience utilising similar concepts. Papers which examine the relations and connections between this false but useful dichotomy in levels of analysis are particularly encouraged.
The 8th International Conference in Critical Management Studies is July 10-12, 2013. Complete information on this call is available on the AHRD website. The lead convenor will be Professor Jim Stewart, Professor of HRD at Coventry Business School. Please submit abstracts (maximum 1,000 words) to him at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 26th April 2013.
FYI, from the Family-School-Community Partnership SIG at AERA:
As part of the Family-School-Community Partnership (FSCP) Monograph series sponsored by the AERA FSCIP SIG, we are planning a 2013 volume that will focus on engaging families in children’s literacy. We are seeking chapters that consider any of the following:
*family engagement programs or activities that impact reading and writing outcomes
*family engagement in literacy among diverse children and families
*research-based or theoretical frameworks for engaging families in literacy (e.g., developmental, empowerment-focused, etc.)
*innovative practices for engaging families in children’s literacy
*policies and systems-level initiatives (e.g., district, state, and national/federal) that engage families in literacy
*other topics related to family engagement in children’s literacy
Note that we are aiming for chapters that provide first and foremost a review of current literature, and illustrated by program and practice examples. If you are interested in being considered for the volume, please send a paragraph describing your proposed chapter topic, sources, and author affiliation to Holly Kreider at email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> no later than January 15, 2012.

We are 3 working professionals who are currently following an online Master degree in continuing professional education in Lyon, France. We are working in different fields (e-learning company, NGO and business school) and we have decided to complete this master degree to advance our skills knowledge and qualifications. In the curriculum of our master degree, there is an English course. And in the frame of this English course, we have to choose a topic and to make a comparison between France and an Anglo-Saxon country by interviewing an English speaking person.
The topic we have chosen is the comparison of the use of the NICT (New Information and Communication Technologies) between our online master degree and a similar one in another country.
So we are now looking for:
1. At least one online master degree in an another country similar to ours : on Training Engineering, or Adult Education, or Professional Education
2. A contact person who is/was involved in this master degree as a teacher or as a student to give us some details on how are used the NICT in this on-line master degree?
Once the contact person identified, we could send him/her a questionnaire in advance, and then call him/her (by phone or by Skype) to collect his/her answers. This interview should not last more than 20 minutes.
We contact you because for us, the International Society for Comparative Adult Education represents a huge opportunity to find a contact person who could answer to our question! Indeed, members of your network are certainly motivated to share information and experience.
So our question is: could you please try to identify a contact person for us on the subject describe above and give us his/her e-mail address?
Do not hesitate if you need more details.
Thanks a lot in advance.
