New Directions for Institutional Research (NDIR) is a thematic and practitioner-oriented edited publication from Jossey-Bass, A Wiley Brand. Quarterly issues of NDIR focus on specific topics related to institutional research, planning, or higher education management. The editors are interested in receiving proposals from potential issue editors who identify and work with chapter contributors. They are particularly interested in receiving proposals focused on the following topics (with focus on the IR audience and implications for IR):

  • Accountability/performance based funding
  • Assessing student affairs programs
  • Qualitative research in IR work
  • Data mining
  • The role of theory in IR work
  • Budget systems and models
  • Contingent faculty: trends and impacts

Potential contributors are encouraged to review recent issues of NDIR for style/format/focus. The time frame from accepted proposal to print is approximately nine months. Issues are typically seven or eight chapters and between 30,000 and 40,000 words. Institutional researchers and higher education scholars interested in exploring opportunities to serve as issue editors are encouraged to contact Gloria Crisp at
