The Journal of Contemplative Inquiry (ISSN: 2333-7281), founded by the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal publishing articles, reflections, and book reviews to support the scholarly exchange of ideas regarding the understanding, development, and application of contemplative and introspective methods in all aspects of higher education. Our intention is to share knowledge that is theoretically grounded and practically useful for teachers, students, staff, and leadership in higher education and related contexts.  

We seek to publish work that builds bridges between the emerging field of contemplative education, broadly defined, and related practices in the wider Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), student life, faculty development, leadership studies, and related areas.  Particularly welcomed are submissions that align with the mission of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society to further compassion and social justice in all aspects of higher education and in our world more widely. We welcome submissions that introduce, explore, and evaluate contemplative practices from different cultural traditions that deepen and support interactions across cultural boundaries and identities. This includes work that may draw on paradigms for conducting research that are different from or in addition to conventional academic methodologies.

Submissions are always welcome. We are continually accepting submissions for regular issues. Questions? Please contact us at editors@contemplativemind.org.
