The newest issue of Learning Communities Research and Practice (LCRP), has just been published. LCRP is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for higher education faculty, staff, researchers, administrators, and students to share current research, effective practices, critical reflections, and resources related to student learning communities in 2-year/4-year colleges and universities. LCRP is published twice a year by the Washington Center for Improving Undergraduate Education at The Evergreen State College.
The next issue of the journal will appear in May 2018. We are currently accepting articles for review for our next issue. For contributions to be considered for the spring issue, submit by January 15, 2018. For more information about the types of submissions we seek, please review the Instructions to Authors.
LCRP is currently seeking applications for members of the editorial review board. Editorial review board members serve a three-year term (December 2017 – December 2020) and can anticipate being asked to review two or three manuscripts each year. Members of the editorial review board must have a minimum of five years of experience working with student learning communities and/or living-learning communities in higher education. We welcome applications from individuals with expertise in administration, student affairs, classroom practice, faculty/professional development, or assessment, particularly as those areas relate to starting and strengthening student learning community programs.
Members of the editorial review board members agree to return their reviews within approximately six weeks of receiving an article, using the journal’s criteria for strong manuscripts. If you are interested in applying, please submit a current resume and a short letter of interest. In your letter, please indicate your reasons for wanting to serve and your specific interests in relation to learning communities. Please indicate whether you have a preference for reviewing a particular type of article (research, practice from the field, perspective). If you have expertise in quantitative research design and analysis, please indicate that as well.
For full consideration as an editorial review board member, please send your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2017.
