Call for submissions: Student Success Journal Special Issue

Student Success Special Issue — Psychological Wellbeing and Distress in Higher Education

The Student Success Journal is an international, open-access, peer-reviewed, scholarly publication exploring the experiences of students in tertiary education. The Journal provides the opportunity to disseminate current research and innovative good practice about students’ tertiary learning experiences, which are supported by evidence.

The 2019 Special Issue will focus on the critical issue of Psychological Wellbeing in Higher Education. Psychological wellbeing is a state of optimal functioning, in which a person’s personal, social and academic performance is at its best. As such, high levels of psychological wellbeing are conducive to optimal learning experiences for tertiary students. Diminished wellbeing can limit students’ capacity to reach their full academic potential. This Special Issue will draw together not only current insights on these issues, but also significant advances in how educators can and are improving the situation across the sector.


Full submission details can be found on the Student Success website.

Submissions should be emailed directly to Guest Editors Dr Abi Brooker and Dr Lydia Woodyatt
