Discipline-Specific Journals on Teaching
There are a variety of journals that published articles on teaching and learning in higher education in particular disciplines. See this list of discipline-specific teaching journals to find journals in your discipline.
Many journal publishers and journal databases provide table-of-contents alert services by which you can sign up to receive emails listing the tables of contents of new issues of selected journals as they are published. Using such services with teaching journals in your field is an efficient way of keeping up with teaching issues in your discipline.
