Academe is the bimonthly publication of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). It analyzes higher education issues from faculty members' perspectives. The magazine begins with an incisive round-up of news affecting professors. Feature articles examine tenure, affirmative action, part-time faculty appointments, distance education, intellectual property, and other timely academic issues. Investigative reports on violations of academic freedom and tenure are regular components. Columns cover legal trends, legislative developments, and new scholarly books.
