Advancing the National and Global Knowledge Economy: The Role of Research Universities in Developing Countries
Altbach, Philip G.
Studies in Higher Education, v38 n3 p316-330 2013

For developing countries, the mechanisms for the involvement of research universities in the global knowledge economy is complex, and includes issues of mobility, the use of technology, collaboration, and other elements.
