Journal of Ethics in Higher Education

Focus and Scope

The focus and scope of the Journal of Ethics in Higher Education (JEHE) are to answer the request made by many faculty members from the Globethics Consortium of Higher Education Institutions, network, partners, regional centres, and participants in Globethics international conferences to have a new space on the Globethics platform for the publication of their research results in a scientific journal.

About the Journal

The Journal of Ethics in Higher Education is a diamond open-access journal on ethics in higher education (no fee for the author or reader). There are two issues each year with online and print versions available.

The journal is aimed at academic experts in ethics and education, working at the forefront of ethical thinking in global and intercultural perspectives, academic integrity, and the philosophy and practice of higher education.

JEHE is available in the Globethics Library. Find it under Globethics Collections > Journal of Ethics in Higher Education.

JEHE is hosted by our partner institution, the University of Fribourg, on their open-access publishing platform SOAP2.
