Phoenix is the AGCAS journal, produced three times a year in February, June and October.

Phoenix is predominantly for AGCAS member services to showcase and share best practice in careers and employability service delivery across a wide range of areas; it is the vehicle for members to share the plethora of initiatives, schemes, projects and collaborations that sit at the heart of the modern-day university careers service.

Each issue is themed. Recent issues have covered regionalisation, big data, social mobility, student well-being, postgraduate students, placements, graduate destinations, graduate attributes and employer engagement.
