Abstract

About the book: published annually since 1985, the Handbook series provides a compendium of thorough and integrative literature reviews on a diverse array of topics of interest to the higher education scholarly and policy communities. Each chapter provides a comprehensive review of research findings on a selected topic, critiques the research literature in terms of its conceptual and methodological rigor, and sets forth an agenda for future research intended to advance knowledge on the chosen topic. The Handbook focuses on twelve general areas that encompass the salient dimensions of scholarly and policy inquiries undertaken in the international higher education community. Each annual volume contains manuscripts on such diverse topics as research on college students and faculty, governance and planning, advances in research methodology, economics and finance, and curriculum and instruction. The series is fortunate to have attracted annual contributions from distinguished scholars throughout the world.
It encompasses:
Comprehensive reviews of contemporary and emerging issues in postsecondary education -
Hundreds of citations in a wide range of scholarly journals, including all leading journals of higher education and many other social science and professional journals -
An indispensable resource for administrators, researchers and policymakers -
Published annually since 1985.
