The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) Journal of Academic Freedom publishes scholarship on academic freedom and on its relation to shared governance, tenure, and collective bargaining. Scholarship on academic freedom is typically scattered across a wide range of disciplines. The Journal provides a central place to track the developing international discussion about academic freedom and its collateral issues.
The Journal is published online annually, and is supported by funding from the AAUP Foundation. Essays range from historical studies to analyses of contemporary conflicts, from accounts of individual faculty experiences to institutional histories.
