"Higher Education Quarterly is a key journal in higher education policy and management studies with a long history and impact on an international basis. The journal has attracted contributions from and the attention of leading researchers in the higher education field for many years... Distribution of authorship by geographic location provides evidence that HEQ is a more international journal than many others that currently enjoy an ISI ranking."
- Dr. Bruce Macfarlane, Associate Professor for Higher Education, University of Hong Kong

"My field is HE policy analysis and strategic leadership and organisation of universities. HEQ gives the best coverage linking those two areas: the interaction between system context and internal strategy and organisation. There are other journals that do some of this, but most do not offer consistent coverage and quality... HEQ has, in my view, a more consistent focus and its independence allows a more disinterested reviewing approach, and thus, a higher standard."
- Professor Ian McNay, Professor Emeritus, Higher Education and Management, University of Greenwich, UK

"HEQ has a significant role as a journal utilized by managers and other practitioners of higher education, as well as research-scholars. This should not detract from its standing as now one of the key scholarly journals in higher education studies, in relation to both empirical studies and conceptual innovations. In the time I have been associated with the journal the flow of incoming papers has risen dramatically in both quantity and quality terms and correspondingly, the peer review process has become increasingly rigorous."
- Professor Simon Marginson, Professor of Higher Education, University of Melbourne, Australia

"HEQ's status within the profession is already established, and has proved particularly attractive to authors wanting relatively early exposure of new work in the rapidly evolving fields of higher education policy and practice. That said, the standard of peer review is uncompromisingly high and publication within it is regarded with pride."
- Professor Sir David Watson, Green Templeton College, Oxford, UK
