Call for chapters- Internationalization of Higher education Practices

Internationalization of Higher education Practices and the Unintended Consequences: A Global Perspective

Editors: Shahrzad Kamyab, Ph.D.; Rosalind Latiner Raby, Ph.D.

This is an open call to submit a contribution to an edited volume to be published by Routledge. The book ‘internationalization of higher education practices and the unintended consequences” highlights both the successful internationalization practices and policies of higher education institutions around the world and the unintended consequences resulting from racing for internationalization or unwise investments made by the higher education institutions in the developing world. In addition, the book will explore the mistakes made in internationalization agendas and the lessons learned from those mistakes.

Chapters are invited from practitioners and scholars in the field of international education who can share their research and experiences of higher education in countries around the world. The intent is to have a combination of state-of-the-field reviews, new empirical scholarship, and critical discussions that help to depict variables that account for successful practices and those that are not so successful. All manuscripts will undergo a double-blind peer-review process.  Editors will only consider papers written in English. Papers should be formatted in APA 7th edition.

If you would like to contribute a chapter to this book, please email an expression of interest that includes:

  1. a) Title of chapter
  2. b) Author contact details (position, institution, email, and phone)
  3. c) 125 – 150 word description of the chapter that includes a description of the chapter, theoretical construct, and methodology.

Expressions of interest should be received by October 30, 2020 with the intent on submitting the chapter draft by February 15, 2021.  Please submit to Dr. Shahrzad Kamyab at

Upon acceptance, contributors will be sent chapter format and guidelines. Completed chapters should be between 4,500 and 6,500 words (excluding references).

Thank you in advance for your interest and participation in this project.
