Metropolitan Universities Journal – Call for Manuscripts – University Social Responsibility in Asia

Posted by Metropolitan Universities journal on January 22, 2019

Metropolitan Universities journal is pleased to partner with the Asia-Pacific Regional Conference on Service-Learning on an upcoming issue, “University Social Responsibility in Asia.” This call for complete, full manuscripts is open to all authors who have experience developing, implementing, and/or measuring university social and economic responsibility initiatives.

Metropolitan Universities journal (MUJ) seeks to showcase how urban-identified colleges and universities in Asia are defining and pursuing their social and economic responsibility. We welcome evidence-based manuscripts that examine how higher education in Taiwan and across east Asia is being shaped by dynamic social, economic, political and demographic change that increases attention to university social responsibility. This issue seeks to identify the challenges and effective strategies related to developing and participating in global partnerships, cross-sector and inter-institutional collaboration, and initiatives that are meant to stimulate university intellectual engagement through social and economic development.

  • Full manuscripts should provide critical, evidence-based studies on university social and economic responsibility initiatives, including programs, policies, and application of ideas at an institutional or system level.
  • Authors should examine efforts that have been in place long enough to show both positive and/or negative results as measured through data collection, research and/or evaluation processes.
  • To allow readers to apply ideas and strategies in other settings, authors should provide a clear description of the challenges and lessons learned.
  • Papers that offer descriptions of social and economic responsibility initiatives without research or evaluation elements will not be accepted

Full manuscripts, written in English, are due by April 30, 2019 and should be submitted in accordance with MUJ guidelines.
