The Journal of Studies in International Education (JSIEhttp://journals.sagepub.com/home/jsi reaches an extensive international audience. It is the premiere forum for higher education researchers, teachers, policy makers, leaders, managers and administrators, interested in all facets of the internationalization of higher education.

JSIE publishes critical scholarly peer reviewed articles from researchers and practitioners in all regions of the world contributing new insights into current and emerging concepts, theories, research and practice in the internationalization of higher education.

Topics include, for example, the relationship of the internationalization of higher education to:

· Globalization

· International cooperation and competition, capacity-building and development assistance

· National, regional, transnational and cross-border policies and practices

· Quality assurance policies and practices

· Public and institutional policy formulation and impact

· Strategic institutional management

· Advances in and use of technology

· Faculty and staff development

· Innovation in mobility of students and staff

· The curriculum and co-curriculum at home and abroad

· Student issues

· Other levels of education

The Journal of Studies in International Education is published on behalf of the European Association for International Education (EAIE) on behalf of the Association for Studies in International Education (ASIE), a group of organizations whose mission is to encourage international education and serious research and publications dealing with this topic. As such, the initial objective of ASIE and the primary focus of its activity is support of the publication of JSIE.

The Journal of Studies in International Education (JSIE) aims to support and inform the work higher education leaders, administrators, educators, emerging and established researchers and policy makers interested in all facets of the internationalization of higher education through the publication of original research that advances knowledge, theory and practice in the field. JSIE publishes articles exploring concepts, strategies, approaches and issues of relevance to the internationalization of higher education which make a significant and original contribution to theory and practice.

We publish articles that:

· Make an original and valuable contribution to the scholarly global conversation on issues related to the internationalization of higher education,

· Are evidence-based and grounded in theory and in practice,

· Have a comparative dimension

· Include appropriate and substantial reference to international literature in the field.

Articles discussing national and regional aspects, issues and dimensions of the internationalization of higher education within a global context are our top priority.

Small case studies of institutional policy and descriptions of single programmes or activities, are a low priority. They will not be published unless they locate the case study within a broader context, include appropriate reference to international literature in the area of study and make a substantial and innovative contribution to the field.

We do not generally publish:

· Opinion pieces or essays - although occasionally, where the editors judge the issue to be of particular significance, and the article is of a high enough quality, they will be considered.

· Book reviews - although we do mention new and significant publications we are aware of in editorials.

  • The Journal of Studies in International Education (JSIE) is the premiere forum for higher education leaders, administrators, educators, researchers and policy makers interested in all facets of the internationalization of higher education. Articles discuss theoretical, conceptual and practical aspects of the internationalization of higher education. The journal attracts an international audience of researchers, students and practitioners and requires that authors reference a range of relevant international literature.

    JSIE publishes articles exploring concepts, strategies, approaches and issues of relevance to the internationalization of higher education which make a significant and original contribution to theory and practice. Prospective authors are encouraged to look at articles that have been published by JSIE to get an insight into the range of topics that have been covered in the past. JSIE is also open to publishing novel ideas and concepts linked to the internationalization of higher education.

    Articles submitted to JSIE will be assessed against the following criteria:

    • They fit within the aims and scope of the journal;
    • They are situated in the international higher education literature;
    • They are innovative and present original findings.
    • They comply with the guidelines for publication, including a length of no more than 7,000 words including everything (tables, references, captions and endnotes); and
    • The manuscript is written in a clear and grammatically correct academic English.

    Any failure to meet these criteria will lead to a desk rejection.

    The Journal of Studies in International Education considers all manuscripts on the following conditions:

    • the manuscript is the original work of the authors, and does not duplicate previously published work, including previously published work of the authors;
    • the manuscript has been submitted only to the Journal of Studies in International Education; it is not under consideration or peer review elsewhere, nor has it been accepted for publication elsewhere;
    • all contributing researchers and authors are included as authors on the manuscript or appropriately acknowledged.

    Practical guidelines

    All manuscripts need to be properly formatted for publication in an academic journal. We do encourage authors to consult a few JSIE issues to familiarize themselves with the format and style of the journal prior to submission.

    Formatting

    • All pages should be numbered sequentially.
    • Tables should be included at the end of the manuscript and numbered in the order in which they appear in the text with appropriate captions. Figures should be treated similarly.
    • For instructions and guidelines on supplemental materials, please refer to the gateway here.

    Because of space issues (i.e., desired number of pages per article and per issue), we ask that authors consider carefully the number of tables, figures and appendixes included in the paper. An excessive number of tables/figures would lead to a rejection out of concern for the number of pages these consume.

    Length of manuscript

    Authors should include the final word count on the first page of their manuscript. A typical manuscript will not exceed 7,000 words, including tables, references, captions and endnotes. Manuscripts exceeding this limit will be rejected.

    References

    References should be formatted according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 6th edition.

    Abstract and keywords

    All submitted manuscripts should include an abstract of no more than 150 words. Abstracts should not include any undefined abbreviation.

    A few keywords are also requested for indexing purposes. If appropriate, please remember to include a keyword pertaining to the region/country of the study.

    Acknowledgments

    We ask that you refrain from including acknowledgments in the blind manuscript out of anonymization concerns. The acknowledgment section, as well as the funding section, can be included on the title page.

    English language

    Please note that we only publish manuscripts written in a clear and grammatically correct academic English. Non-Anglophone authors are advised to use the service of an Anglophone colleague or a professional editor, to avoid rejection on the basis of poor language.

    Authors who want to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider utilizing the services of SPi, a non-affiliated company that specializes in editing and correcting English-language manuscripts written by authors with a primary language other than English. Visit http://www.prof-editing.com for more information. (Please be aware that SAGE has no affiliation with SPi and makes no endorsement of the company. An author’s use of SPi’s services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and SPi, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.)
     

    For more information, please refer to the SAGE Manuscript Submission Guidelines.

     

    How and what to submit

    Submit your manuscript to the SAGEtrack site, located at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jsie.

    If you have difficulties with doing so, you can go to the Author Quick Start Guide available at the following link: http://mcv3help.manuscriptcentral.com/tutorials/Author.pdf or by clicking on the “User Tutorials” link under “Resources” on the login page.

    You will be asked to submit:

    • a title page with the author’s name, title, affiliation, address and biographical information (40-75 words). For the corresponding author, an email address and phone number should also be included.
    • a blind copy of your manuscript, excluding any identifiable mention of the author(s). We do not advise the anonymization of references: authors’ names can be kept in references to prior publications as long as they are not associated with a first person pronoun in a sentence.
