Call for Editor: Community College Review
SAGE Publications announces the call for Editor for the Community College Review (CCR), a quarterly publication. For more than 45 years, CCR has published scholarship from a wide variety of theoretical, practical, and disciplinary perspectives related to community colleges, and has published manuscripts dealing with all aspects of community college administration, education, and policy within both the American higher education system and higher education systems in other countries with similar tertiary institutions. The Editor oversees the peer review process for manuscripts, ensures the timelessness and quality of each issue, and advances CCR’s rigor, reputation, and scholarship. Candidates should possess a doctoral degree in a relevant field and demonstrate a broad knowledge of community colleges with a record of significant research in the area and engagement in professional organizations related to community colleges. For questions or to submit application materials, contact Dr. Duane Akroyd, Executive Editor, Community College Review.

Editor’s Tip: It should go without saying that one should be sure to consult and review the guidelines for submission for a journal. All too frequently the most common expectations are ignored, such as required line spacing or page guidelines for manuscript length, and doing so immediately raises a red flag about the quality of the manuscript and the scholarly integrity and thoughtfulness of the authors.
For information about this journal please visit the journal website, where you will find the guidelines for submission, a listing of the Editorial Board members, and abstracts of past published articles. Note that the majority of subscriptions are libraries and consortia.
