NDIR Call for Contributors

New Directions for Institutional Research (NDIR) is under the new editorship of John Ryan and Gloria Crisp. NDIR is a quarterly sourcebook published by Jossey-Bass/Wiley. Each issue focuses on a specific topic related to IR, planning, or higher education management. The editors are interested in receiving proposals from potential issue editors who identify and work with chapter contributors. Example topics (with focus on the IR audience and implications for IR) include:

  • Post-9/11 GI Bill
  • ACA – Institutional Impacts and Responses
  • Budget Systems and Models
  • Data Warehousing/Data Marts
  • Measuring Faculty Scholarly Productivity
  • TT vs. Non-TT Faculty: Trends and Impacts
  • MOOCs
  • Accountability (such as the White House Scorecard)

NDIR issues are normally seven to eight chapters in length (30,000-40,000 words). Potential contributors are encouraged to read recent issues of NDIR for style/format/focus. The time frame from accepted proposals to print is approximately nine months. Those interested in exploring opportunities to publish in NDIR and/or serve as volume editors are encouraged to contact John Ryan at
