Journal of Comparative and International Education

The Journal of Comparative & International Higher Education is the official journal of the HESIG. HESIG supports development, analysis, and dissemination of theory-, policy-, and practice-related issues that influence higher education. Accordingly, JCIHE publishes work from the complementary fields of comparative, international, and development education addressing these issues. 

JCIHE is proud to announce our partnership with Open Journals in Education (OJED).  Please visit the new platform at www.ojed.org/jcihe to submit manuscripts or to register as a peer reviewer.  OJED is a Gold Open Access platform, and all articles in JCIHE will now receive a DOI number and will be cross-listed in the EBSCOHOST database, GoogleScholar and CiteFactor, to maximize article discoverability and citation.
