About the Journal

Focus and Scope

PESTLHE offers an opportunity for those involved in University learning and teaching to disseminate their practice. It aims to publish accounts of scholarly practice that report on small-scale practitioner research and case studies of practice that involve reflection, critique, implications for future practice and are informed by relevant literature, with a focus on enhancement of student learning. This publication thus offers a forum to develop and share scholarly informed practice in Higher Education through either works in progress or more detailed accounts of scholarly practice. The journal will be published twice a year (April and November). SPECIAL EDITIONS WILL OCCUR ON A BESPOKSE BASIS

Peer Review Process

A double-blind review process is followed. Two referees will review each manuscript submitted to the journal. Referees will be selected by the editor based on qualifications and the ability to provide a timely review.

Peer reviewers will have four possible options, for each article: 

1. Accept without revision 

2. Accept after revision without expecting to check those revisions 

3. Neither accepts nor rejects until author(s) make revisions and resubmits 

4. Reject because unsound, inappropriate or otherwise failing to make a contribution to the field.
