The International Higher Education (IHE), a quarterly journal published by the Boston College Center for International Higher Education, published a French edition for the first time in January 2017.
The project was the result of an agreement reached between the Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) and the Center. In order to meet the project objectives, AUF established a consortium of universities made up of the Université Gaston Berger de Saint-Louis in Senegal, the University of Johannesburg in South Africa, and McGill University in Canada.
The vast majority of texts translated from English to French were done under the supervision of ABC member James Archibald, who chairs the Department of Translation and Written Communication at McGill University. The Center at Boston College publishes several other foreign language versions of IHE: Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese. All may be accessed free of charge on the Center's website.
The French-language edition is hosted on the AUF website. As a result of this initiative, current research in international education is now accessible to readers in AUF's 106 member countries and the 817 institutions of higher earning affiliated with the AUF.
