Letters to the Editor

Academe welcomes your comments. Respond to articles using the comment function at the end of each article on our website.

Manuscript Submissions

Academe, the magazine of the American Association of University Professors, welcomes submissions of articles, review essays, and opinion columns as well as proposals for book reviews. Academe explores a wide range of topics in higher education. Our readership includes faculty members, academic professionals, and graduate students from many different disciplines as well as academic leaders, policy makers, and media professionals involved in higher education issues. Academe seeks to publish compellingly written, rigorous, salient, and original articles on the critical issues facing higher education. In addition to longer articles and review essays, Academe editors encourage submissions to Faculty Forum, our members’ opinion column. Academe editors select some articles for online publication only.
