Journal of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

The Journal has a focus on Higher Education teaching, learning, research and contemporary thought. The aims of the journal are to raise the profile of scholarship in educational practice, and to bring together learners and educators in an open, creative and collaborative publication.

 The journal seeks to do this by publishing a range of contributions from those engaged in higher education. The journal promotes equality and diversity by identifying and challenging barriers in deciding journal policy, recruitment and future direction. Students and staff are equally welcome to submit work. Creative writing and reinterpretations of research and scholarly outputs are particularly welcome. Our peer reviewers will offer constructive feedback on all submissions in the spirit of building capacity for scholarship in the field of higher education.

New Middle Eastern Studies

New Middle Eastern Studies (NMES) is a biannual international peer-reviewed journal indexed in various respected scientific databases.

NMES exists to offer new perspectives on debates within Middle Eastern Studies and to challenge main orthodoxies in the field. The journal is in dialogue with a set of perspectives inspired by critical, post-colonial, non-orientalist and “global” approaches in the study of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and welcomes such contributions. Taking this aim a step further, however, NMES suggests to tackle issues from a comparative, cross-cultural perspective with the goal of going beyond consolidated frameworks and encouraging original accounts of life and politics in the Middle East.

NMES acknowledges the perspectives of people “on the ground”, as local voices are seen as a source of inspiration for thinking beyond Western ontological schemes and political views. In this direction, the journal strives to contribute to non-Eurocentric understandings of the region and encourages contributions that challenge mainstream theories and perspectives.

NMES promotes the exploration of historical, socio-economic, cultural, intellectual and political processes that are constitutive of the multiplicity and multi-layered set of transformations that have shaped the region in the last 3 millennia. The journal welcomes original contributions from the humanities and the social sciences that engage with these themes and which are able to frame case studies in a wider theoretical and comparative framework.

Review and Writing: The Training Journal

The mission of Raw: The Training Journal is to assist in the development of ethical, professional, and development-focused reviewing and editorial skills within the ULSB community. Simulating a real-world editorial structure, RaW offers ULSB academics with an opportunity to gain experience in peer-review, both as authors and as reviewers, and to acquire editorial experience within a collegial, training-oriented environment.

All papers submitted to RaW  undergo peer-review by subject specialists and authors can expect an ethical, development-focused review of their work that will greatly strengthen their manuscript and minimize the possibility of early desk rejections. Together with reviewing papers, RaW focuses on the development of good reviewers and thus places emphasis on review-of-reviews whereby peers are asked to comment on reviews of papers. As such, authors who submit their work to RaW will be asked to provide feedback on the reviews they receive and to evaluate other manuscript’s reviews for their constructiveness. Thus, by submitting to RaW, authors gain more than valuable feedback on their own work but also experience in reviewing and contribute to the development of a better, more professional community.
