About Academic Questions

The National Association of Scholars upholds the standards of a liberal arts education that fosters intellectual freedom, searches for the truth, and promotes virtuous citizenship.

A journal dedicated to strengthening the integrity of scholarship and teaching, Academic Questions examines issues that arise from the interplay among politics, ideology, scholarship, and teaching in higher education.

Among the broad range of questions explored in the journal are the maintenance of scholarly standards, the quality and even-handedness of peer review, the preservation of intellectual tolerance and civility on campus and within academic associations, and the relationship between government and education. A critique of the academy by academics themselves, Academic Questions upholds humanism and intellectual freedom traditions.

Academic Questions is published quarterly in the spring, summer, fall, and winter by the National Association of Scholars. Previously, issues were published by Springer Science + Business Media. The opinions and views expressed by the contributors and editors of Academic Questions are their own, and do not necessarily express the viewpoint or official position of the National Association of Scholars.
