The International Journal for Academic Development (IJAD) is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, having put out its first issue in 1996. A special 20th anniversary issue is now available online (and shortly in print). The anniversary issue of IJAD is available for download. For your convenience, the table of contents is included below.

If you do not currently have access to IJAD, a discounted subscription rate (£29/US$47) is available to all institutions belonging to one of the national organisations making up the International Consortium for Educational Development.

We hope you enjoy this issue of IJAD and encourage you to submit your own manuscripts to us. Full instructions for authors are available here.
