A Thank-You to Grant Harman We would like to express our deep gratitude to Professor emeritus Grant Harman, who is stepping back as Editor-in-Chief of Higher Education, for his outstanding work and strong dedication over the last 14 years. Grant Harman was appointed the Editor-in-Chief in June 1998 and he has witnessed and contributed to the growth of Higher Education into a leading journal in the field of higher education research. During his period as Editor-in-Chief the number of yearly volumes has increased by 50 per cent and the number of submissions has more than quadrupled over the last 10 years. We are sincerely grateful to his great work in the service of the journal. Recognized as the leading international journal on higher education studies, this publication examines educational developments throughout the world in universities, polytechnics, colleges, and vocational and education institutions. It reports on developments in both public and private higher education sectors. Higher Education features contributions from leading scholars from different countries who tackle the problems of teachers as well as students, and of planners as well as administrators. It presents authoritative overview articles, comparative studies and analyses of particular problems or issues. While each higher education system has its own distinctive features, common problems and issues are shared internationally by researchers, teachers and institutional leaders. Higher Education offers opportunities for the exchange of research results, experience and insights, and provides a forum for ongoing discussion between experts.
