Established in 2019, the Journal of Higher Education in Prison is the only open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes exclusively on topics and issues affecting the field of higher education in prison. Our goal is that the journal will serve as a tool to facilitate conversation on theory, praxis, and teaching and learning in prison.
Launching this journal represents one facet of our collective commitment to quality higher education, as well as an effort to engage in and promote public dialogue. As we move forward, we invite practitioners, students, advocates, policymakers, and others immersed in scholarship and research that centers teaching and learning in prison to use the pages of this journal to amplify access to their work. By creating a space dedicated to this scholarship, and expanding access to such work, we hope this journal will improve the quality of educational opportunities available to students currently incarcerated and alumni of higher education in prison programs with the ultimate goal of aiding in the effort to abolish the prison industrial complex.
Note: The Journal of Higher Education in Prison is published independently by the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison and is supported by an Editorial Board.
