HERDSA Members - Subscription to HERD 

This message applies to HERDSA members only.

At the AGM in Sydney in June, it was agreed that the default option for the member subscription to the HERDSA Journal 'Higher Education Research & Development' (HERD) will now be the online version of the journal. When your membership comes up for renewal, your subscription to the journal will become the default option, that is you will no longer automatically receive a print copy of HERD. If you wish to continue to receive a print copy you will need to add this to your membership renewal at a cost of $20.

To access the journal online, you need to log in to the members section on the HERDSA website (HERDSA.org.au) and go to the 'MyDashboard' tab. You will then find a link to Member Access to HERD on the right hand menu.

When a new issue becomes available, a notification is posted in HERDSA Notices.

If you have any questions please contact Allan Goody (agoody56@gmail.com) or the HERDSA Office.

A New Book on Research Methodology in Higher Education

This is the first book dedicated to Research Methodology in Higher Education, intended for anyone who wishes to improve university teaching and learning through systematic inquiry. It provides advice, but also a constructive critique of research methods and, in turn, the authors also contribute to the theories of research methodology. It will be of particular interest to postgraduate students, academic developers and experienced academics from a wide variety of disciplines.

Topics covered include ontology, epistemology and engagement with academic literature, as well as research design approaches and methods of data collection. There is a keen focus on quality in both the analysis and evaluation of research, and new models are proposed to help the new researcher. The authors conclude by examining the challenges in getting work published and close with some words on quality of thought and action.
