About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The DUS Advising Conference seeks to showcase novel research and practices that contribute to the field of academic advising. To meet the changing needs of our students and to overcome the challenges facing higher education, academic advisers must examine and evolve their practice to incorporate new scholarship and innovative ideas. We invite you to reflect on advising practices and to contemplate new ways to enhance the advising experience for all students. We look forward to conversation that examines the field of advising and its future.

Peer Review Process

All proposals are reviewed in the traditional sense (i.e., it sends blind copies of submitted proposals to accomplished readers for review). Every proposal submitted is additionally vetted by the conference co-chairs. All readers are academic advisers. In some cases, additional members of the conference committee or other experts in the field of academic advising are consulted to determine whether or not a proposal is appropriate for presentation.
