The ‘Research in Progress’ article category



Research in progress, innovation, audio


ASRHE has introduced a novel article category named ‘Research in Progress’. While the journal’s website provides a succinct definition of this category, initial submissions indicate that further guidance is required to highlight requirements and opportunities. The editors have decided to approach this challenge by constructing an audio editorial, recorded in a conversational format, allowing for multiple voices and nuances to come across.

Important aspects of Research in Progress lie in facilitating publication of tentative results, sharing of research approaches and discussion of research designs. The editors emphasize the need for a strong research foundation, as in literature grounding or careful research question design, and open and honest discussion of successes and failures. Research in Progress is strongly placed to invite collaborations and authors are reminded to be explicit in specifying how they want to work with others to take research forward. The editorial also addresses the situation of research students and how a Research in Progress article might sit alongside thesis writing.

Research in Progress is a developing article category. The editors invite assistance from the higher education research community in shaping this category.
