The Community College Review (CCR) has led the nation since 1973 in the publication of scholarly, peer-reviewed research and commentary on community colleges. CCR, published quarterly, welcomes manuscripts dealing with all aspects of community college administration, education, and policy, both within the American higher education system as well as within the higher education systems of other countries that have similar tertiary institutions. All submitted manuscripts undergo a blind review. When manuscripts are not accepted for publication, we offer suggestions for how they might be revised. The ultimate intent is to further discourse about community colleges, their students, and the educators who lead and work within these institutions.


CCR Vision

To be the national leader in publication of scholarly, peer-reviewed research and commentary on community colleges.

CCR Mission

The mission of the Community College Review (CCR) is to provide a forum for leading thought on community colleges, their students, and the educators and administrators who work within these institutions. CCR welcomes manuscripts addressing all aspects of community college administration, education, and policy within the American higher education system as well as higher education systems of other countries spanning tertiary education globally. All manuscript submissions undergo a blind review. CCR extends constructive feedback to authors. When manuscripts are not accepted for publication, the editorial board offers suggestions revision and improvement.

The CCR serves a national and international audience, which includes presidents, community college faculty and administrators, university researchers, graduate students, policymakers, and others interested in the role of community colleges in higher education. Articles published in the CCR include qualitative and quantitative research reports, critical literature reviews, scholarly essays, and book reviews. All featured publications reflect sound scholarship, appropriate research methodologies (in the case of empirical, data-driven studies), and the integration of theory and practice.
