The Journal of Higher Education is one of the oldest and leading scholarly journals on the institution of higher education. Articles combine disciplinary methods with critical insight to investigate issues important to faculty, administrators, and program managers.

The Review of Higher Education is another leading journal of research on higher education, and is the journal of ASHE -- the Association for the Study of Higher Education. It publishes articles, essays, and reviews that advance the study of colleges and universities.
The Journal of General Education addresses the general education concerns of community colleges, four-year colleges, universities, and state systems. The audience for the journal is faculty, administrators, and policymakers interested in issues of general education.

Research in Higher Education is the journal of AIR -- the Assocation for Institutional Research. It publishes "original, quantitative research articles which contribute to an increased understanding of an institution, aid faculty in making more informed decisions about current or future operations, and improve the efficiency of an institution."

The Journal of Excellence in College Teaching is a peer-reviewed journal published at Miami University by and for faculty at universities and two- and four-year colleges to increase student learning through effective teaching, interest in and enthusiasm for the profession of teaching, and communication among faculty about their classroom experiences. It answers Ernest Boyer's (1990) call for a forum to present the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Thought and Action is the National Education Association's peer reviewed higher education journal, and focuses on theoretical and practical information on issues in higher education that are important to faculty and staff.
