Call for Manuscript Proposals

Manuscript Proposal Guidelines

During the initial Higher Education SIG Business Meeting in 2008 at Teachers College in New York, we launched a HESIG-sponsored book series on current topics in international higher education. These volumes may be edited or monographed and contributed to by HESIG members and published as part of Palgrave Macmillan’s International and Development Education Book Series. This web page provides a formal call for manuscript proposals for this HESIG-cosponsored project.

This series focuses on the complementary areas of comparative, international, and development education. Books emphasize a number of topics including key international education issues and reforms, higher education management trends, quality assurance, strategic planning, examinations of national education systems, and development education initiatives. Local, national, regional, and global volumes (single authored and edited collections) constitute the breadth of the series and offer potential contributors a great deal of latitude based on interests and cutting-edge research. The series is supported by a strong network of international scholars and development professionals who serve on the International and Development Education Review Board and participate in the selection and review process for manuscript development. The series is co-sponsored by the Higher Education Special Interest Group of the Comparative and International Education Society and the East-West Center.
