Mission

The Journal of Higher Education in Prison publishes open-access, peer-reviewed scholarship that advances the field of higher education in prison and addresses four specific needs:

  • 1. creating a dedicated space for peer-reviewed scholarship on higher education in prison;
  • 2. expanding opportunities for scholars to publish on topics focused on higher education in prison;
  • 3. extending readership opportunities to more people (domestic and international) through open-access publishing; and
  • 4. contributing to the creation of a community of practice for the higher education in prison community.

Thus, there are NO author or reader fees to publish in and read the Journal of Higher Education in Prison (e.g., no submission fees, subscription fees, or article processing charges [APCs]).

Archiving Policy

All articles from the Journal of Higher Education in Prison will be archived with the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison. All authors may self-archive any version of the submitted article (e.g., preprint) and any time.

Note: The journal is published independently by the Alliance and supported by an Editorial Board of senior scholars. The Journal of Higher Education in Prison owes a tremendous amount of gratitude to the editorial team at the Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs and Michael LeVan, Editor-in-Chief/Founding Editor of Liminalities: A Journal of Performance Studies for their guidance as we founded a new journal.

JHEP is guided by the following values:

Open-Access: We believe that knowledge should be freely available to everyone, regardless of social status or current location.

Transparent: We believe it should be at the discretion of reviewers and authors to choose an “open” or “masked” process and we support efforts to demystify the publishing process.

Community-Focused: We believe that the advancement of the field of higher education in prison is dependent on co-learning and collaboration.
