We are currently not accepting new submissions for the Professional File pending changes to its nature and format. We encourage you to consider a submission to the Canadian Journal of Higher Education instead.

The CSSHE Professional File is published two or three times annually. The principal purpose of the Professional File is to make reports, studies, conference proceedings, and papers that are of current interest to the higher education community available on a more timely basis, and with more flexibility in terms of length and format, than are normally possible in academic journals.

The Professional File describes and analyzes current issues in higher education policy and practice. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view these files.
