By Sharla Hooper

The College invites external manuscript submissions for consideration in a Spring 2024 special issue on artificial intelligence across sectors

University of Phoenix College of Doctoral Studies invites submissions for a special issue on the burgeoning realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in its planned spring edition of Phoenix Scholar™ academic research periodical. The periodical, launched in 2017, highlights the commitment of University of Phoenix faculty, students and alumni to leading research through evidence-based practice. As AI continues to permeate every facet of our lives, from classrooms to corporate boardrooms, the Phoenix Scholar editorial team seeks to explore the multifaceted impact of AI on education, research, workforce, and beyond.

“In an era marked by unprecedented technological advancements, AI stands as a transformative force with profound implications across various sectors, including academia,” shares Hinrich Eylers, Ph.D., P.E., vice provost, College of Doctoral Studies. “We expanded the invitation to submit as an opportunity to explore a broad range of scholarly perspectives delving into the promises and perils of AI in the academic landscape, examining its potential to enhance teaching methodologies, streamline administrative processes, and catalyze groundbreaking research endeavors.”   

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit original articles, conceptual pieces, and grassroots efforts that elucidate the transformative power of AI while navigating the ethical and practical considerations inherent in its adoption. Best practices, ongoing or recently completed research, and reflections on AI's implications for the future of education are welcomed.

Submissions are due Friday, March 29, 2024. While the Phoenix Scholar does not publish original research studies, the editorial team invites submissions that celebrate recent publications or upcoming conference presentations related to AI. Manuscripts should adhere to APA style guidelines and be 1,000 to 2,000 words in length. More information and guidance about submitting a manuscript for consideration is available here.

The Phoenix Scholar serves as the scholarly platform for communicating the results and outcomes of University of Phoenix research endeavors, and their relationship to the broader scope of learning and scholarship. The periodical has been assigned an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) by the U.S. ISSN Center at the Library of Congress.
