Opportunity to Publish

SUNY Applied Learning has partnered with Missouri Western University to host a joint conference in the fall of 2019.

SUNY will be guest-editing a volume of the Journal of Applied Learning in Higher Education and therefore offers conference proposers the opportunity to develop a manuscript of their work for submission following the Fifth Annual SUNY Applied Learning Conference. Details about formatting and submissions will be shared shortly. If you are interested in publishing in the journal, please indicate that in your proposal submission.
