Teaching in Higher Education has become an internationally recognised field, which is more than ever open to multiple forms of contestation. However, the intellectual challenge which teaching presents has been inadequately acknowledged and theorised in higher education. Teaching in Higher Education addresses this gap by publishing scholarly work that critically examines and interrogates the values and presuppositions underpinning teaching, introduces theoretical perspectives and insights drawn from different disciplinary and methodological frameworks, and considers how teaching and research can be brought into a closer relationship. The journal welcomes contributions that aim to develop sustained reflection, investigation and critique, and that critically identify new agendas for research, for example by: examining the impact on teaching exerted by wider contextual factors such as policy, funding, institutional change and the expectations of society; developing conceptual analyses of pedagogical issues and debates, such as authority, power, assessment and the nature of understanding; exploring the various values which underlie teaching including those concerned with social justice and equity; offering critical accounts of lived experiences of higher education pedagogies which bring together theory and practice. Authors are strongly encouraged to engage with and build on previous contributions and issues raised in the journal. Please note that the journal does not publish: -descriptions and/or evaluations of policy and/or practice; -localised case studies that are not contextualized and theorised; -large-scale surveys that are not theoretically and critically analysed; -studies that simply replicate previous work without establishing originality.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Teaching in Higher Education

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
