________________________________________________________________________________________ 

  • Teaching & Learning Inquiry: ISSOTL's official and only journal, TLI publishes insightful research, theory, commentary, and other scholarly works that document or facilitate investigations of teaching and learning in higher education. TLI values quality and variety in its vision of the scholarship of teaching and learning.  Its pages will showcase the breadth of the interdisciplinary field of SoTL in its explicit methodological pluralism, its call for traditional and new genres, and its international authorship from across career stages.
  • The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (CJSoTL): the official, trans-disciplinary, peer-reviewed, electronic publication of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. CJSoTL seeks to advance the scholarship of teaching and learning in Canadian post-secondary institutions. It therefore provides an avenue for a wide range of educators, including faculty members, administrators, academic librarians, educational developers, learning resource specialists, and graduate students, to discuss ways of enhancing student learning experiences through systematic inquiry into teaching and learning in all disciplines.
  • International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning: Not affiliated with ISSOTL, IJ-SoTL is an international, peer-reviewed, open access eJournal that is published by the Center for Excellence in Teaching at Georgia Southern University (Statesboro, Georgia, USA). The Editorial Review Board is very international and issues contain research articles, essays, personal reflections, as well as invited essays on SOTL. IJ-SOTL has the vision of being a dynamic international SOTL journal by being an advocate, agent and crucible for international conversations, contacts and work on SOTL. There is an IJ-SOTL listserv for discussion of any and all things connected with SOTL.
  • MountainRise: An open, peer-reviewed, international electronic journal published twice a year by the Coulter Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning at Western Carolina University (USA) for the purpose of being an international vehicle for SOTL.
  • The Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: Designed to encourage all instructors to engage in the discussion of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, and to become involved in the sharing of knowledge and learning about the teaching-learning process. Any report about an investigation into what works (or doesn't work) for a particular teaching-learning context will be considered for publication. Those submissions that include reflective commentary about the result of the investigation will be considered of greater value to our readership and more appealing for publication. The journal shall also consider submissions that offer opinion, thoughtful reflection, commentary, or theoretical ideas related to SOTL.
  • Active Learning in Higher Education: An international, refereed publication for all those who teach and support learning in Higher Education and those who undertake or use research into effective learning, teaching and assessment in universities and colleges. The journal has an objective of improving the status of teaching and learning support as professional activity and embraces academic practice across all curriculum areas in higher education.
  • College Teaching: An interdisciplinary forum on issues related to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This journal is interested in articles that explore: (1) aims and outcomes of teaching philosophy and practices that have significance beyond a specific discipline, including teaching of techniques, new classroom procedures, evaluations of innovative programs, and examination of contemporary developments; (2) teachers' roles, education, professional development, preparation to teach, and evaluation; and (3) incentives that encourage good teaching and ways good teaching is evaluated and rewarded.
  • Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: Publishes articles, reviews and scholarly comment relating to the arts and humanities in higher education serving the community of arts and humanities educators internationally. Expertly edited, rigorously peer-reviewed and with a truly international outlook and application, the journal publishes significant opinion and research into contemporary issues of teaching and learning critical to all educators and researchers in this far-ranging area.
  • Teaching in Higher Education: An international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that addresses the roles of teaching, learning and the curriculum in higher education in order to explore and clarify the intellectual challenges which they present. The journal aims to open up discussion across subject areas by involving all those who share an enthusiasm for learning and teaching.
  • Transformative Dialogues: The result of the Carnegie Leadership Program on Creating Scholarly Communities, TD is a forum for conversations intended to foster the improvement of adult teaching and learning. TD facilitates the multi-disciplinary exchange of ideas, actions, and results of innovative and professional practice in the scholarship of teaching and learning. These conversations are intended to span a wide range of reflections on the processes of teaching and learning ranging from the scholarly to scholarship. Reflections and understandings shared are focused on improving student and faculty learning, and critical thought processes in their current and future life long learning. We understand that scholarship may play out differently in different disciplines, but the basic principles should be consistent (Boyer, 1992).
  • Academic Exchange Quarterly: An independent, double-blind-peer reviewed journal that publishes research, commentary, and other manuscripts that contribute to effective instruction and learning
  • New Directions for Teaching and Learning: From Jossey-Bass/Wiley, themed issues offer ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers
  • Journal on Excellence for College Teaching: A peer-reviewed journal published at Miami University by and for faculty at universities and two- and four-year colleges to increase student learning through effective teaching, interest in and enthusiasm for the profession of teaching, and communication among faculty about their classroom experiences. It answers Ernest Boyer's (1990) call for a forum to present the scholarship of teaching and learning. The Journal provides a scholarly, written forum for discussion by faculty about all areas affecting teaching and learning, and gives faculty the opportunity to share proven, innovative pedagogies and thoughtful, inspirational insights about teaching.
  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Psychology:  a new APA journal that features teacher-ready reviews of current research and contemporary theories as well as empirical research designed to foster systematic intentional changes to improve teaching and learning outcomes. Our mission is to leverage psychological science to provide resources that integrate research, theory, and practice to benefit high school, community college, college, and university educators and their students.
  • Currents in Teaching and Learning: a peer-reviewed electronic journal that fosters exchanges among reflective teacher-scholars across the disciplines. Published twice a year, Currents seeks to improve teaching and learning in higher education with short reports on classroom practices as well as longer research, theoretical, or conceptual articles, and explorations of issues and challenges facing teachers today.
  • inventio: From George Mason University (Virginia, USA), the journal began as part of the Carnegie Foundation's Teaching Academy program and invited contributors to address definitions of the scholarship of teaching and looked at ways that campus practices, policies, and conditions work for or against a scholarship of teaching. Regular issues feature peer-reviewed articles on instructional research, instructional philosophy, pedagogy, learning theory, and other significant issues related to excellence in learning and teaching. In addition to these feature articles, inventio also includes shorter articles on classroom practice and response and dialog sections about issues raised in the feature articles. (Inventio appears to have halted publications, but archives are still available.)
  • The National Teaching and Learning Forum: Published six times per year, NTLF essays range from research-based pieces on learning to summaries of on-going problems.
  • Canadian Journal of Higher Education: administered by the CSSHE
