The Journal of International Students (JIS), an academic, interdisciplinary, and peer-reviewed publication (Print ISSN 2162-3104 & Online ISSN 2166-3750), publishes scholarly peer reviewed articles on international students in tertiary education, secondary education, and other educational settings that make significant contributions to research, policy, and practice in the internationalization of higher education.
The recent issue (Vol 2, No 9) has a global reach in its collection of articles, from US, UK, Taiwan, Canada, Japan and Europe. The editors invite contributions for this relevent, specialist Journal that explores the experience of international students in a range of settings.
For example, a literature review: Challenges of International Students from Pre-Departure to Post-Study (Khanal & Gaulee) provides a review of the challenges of international students described in literature since 2000. The findings reveal ‘a plethora of challenges including some common ones such as obtaining accurate information, admission procedure, and preparing documents for VISA while preparing for study abroad.’
We commend the Journal to our readers.
