Call for Special Issue Proposals

In order to better serve our academic community and deal with more focused topics with high current interest, special issues are welcome at any time during the year in any fields of higher education subjects. They should be organized by recognized experts in the area and attract articles of the highest quality.

Proposals for Special Issue should include the following: 

  • A suggested title for the Special Issue 
  • The journal for which the Special Issue is intended 
  • Proposed Aims and Scope, giving an overview of the Special Issue's intended focus and a list of the topics to be covered 
  • The Guest Editors who are willing to manage the Special Issue, including their names, emails, affiliations, and a short biography 
  • (one paragraph) of each of the Guest Editors 

We would like to cooperate with other institutions to publish special issues. In this regard, the following points should be considered:

1. If you would like to publish a special issue, please discuss it with us at least five months before publication to give us time to prepare.
2. You should pay a publication fee of 400.00 USD per article. Usually, we publish eight to thirty articles per issue.
3. We will offer you a number of printed journals—usually, two copies of each article.
4. We provide you with a free e-journal in PDF, if you need it.
5. You may nominate guest editors and reviewers for the special issue, and we will list their names in the printed version.
6. You can arrange peer reviews by your nominated guest editors and reviewers; otherwise, our editors and reviewers can do it.

All proposals should be submitted to ijhe@sciedupress.com, and they are subject to approval by the journal editorial board.
