AJUCE Journal

The Australasian Journal of University-Community Engagement

AJUCE Journal was the predecessor to the Transform: Journal of Engaged Scholarship. Previous AJUCE journals are below for reference.

The journals are peer-reviewed and has a strong focus on research, theory and practice about university engagement with an aim to strengthen the ‘scholarship of engagement’. Previously published bi-annually, the e-journal demonstrates the diversity of activity that occurs within both our institutions and our communities. Social responsiveness in higher education, community engaged learning and research, collaborative partnerships and higher education post-Bradley is explored, analysed and reviewed.
