Student Success: open access journal

An Australian open access education journal worth monitoring if you work in Higher Education is: Student Success: A journal exploring the experiences of students in tertiary education. "This journal provides the opportunity to disseminate current research and innovative good practice about students’ tertiary learning experiences, which are supported by evidence. Researchers, tertiary and university teachers and educators and professional staff who are advancing student learning, success and retention are encouraged to submit." It was formerly the International Journal of the First Year in Higher Education and the current issue (volume 8, no 2, 2017) has something of a FYHE focus. It starts with an article by the well-respected Professor Vince Tinto: Reflections on Student Persistence and other articles includ: First year student conceptions of success: What really matters? (Ryan Naylor); Transition pedagogies and the neoliberal episteme: What do academics think? (Kate Hughes); The flipped classroom: A learning model to increase student engagement not academic achievement (Masha Smallhorn). Content page at
