Journal Highlights Faculty Expertise and Academic Contributions
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 10, 2015 - DeVry University today released the Spring 2015 issue of its Journal of Scholarly Research, a compendium of academic research written by university faculty members. This issue marks the third installment of the journal, which is published biannually in June and December.
The publication is a multi-discipline peer-edited journal devoted to issues of scholarship and education research, featuring submissions from the faculty, staff and administration of DeVry University. DeVry University values and promotes advancing scholarly research by continually encouraging faculty to actively participate in sharing significant academic contributions in their respective fields, among other opportunities.
“In addition to providing students with high-quality learning opportunities, academic and research pursuits are a core component of a faculty member’s role at DeVry University,” said Donna M. Loraine, Ph.D., chief academic officer and provost of DeVry University. “The Journal of Scholarly Research is a vehicle to spark conversation and inspire greater collaboration and interdisciplinary research among DeVry University faculty members and their academic peers in other nationally recognized research organizations.”
Along with original scholarly papers from faculty members on a wide range of academic topics, the Spring 2015 issue includes a new book review section. Further enhancements are planned for upcoming issues to further contribute to the university’s body of knowledge, foster discussions that lead to new scholarship, alert colleagues to new developments, and ultimately provide a broader and deeper view of the world, which can in turn be shared with students.
“Scholarly activity has always been on display at our annual faculty symposiums and the Journal of Scholarly Research offers us a more formal channel to share that with a broader audience,” said John J. Gibbons, Ph.D., dean of faculty at DeVry University.
