Learning Communities Research and Practice (LCRP) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for higher education faculty, staff, researchers, administrators, and students to share current research, effective practices, critical reflections, and resources related to student learning communities in higher education. The purpose of LCRP is to promote practices and knowledge that strengthen the learning communities field. LCRP seeks submissions from faculty, administrators, student services professionals, researchers, and students involved in learning community work as defined by the Leaning Communities Association.

LCRP is published twice a year in spring and fall. Submissions are accepted year-round, but deadlines are January 15 and July 15 to be considered for the spring and fall issues, respectively.

LCRP (ISSN 2375-804X) is hosted by The Evergreen State College’s Washington Center, the National Resource Center for Learning Communities.
