Baltaru, Roxana-Diana – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019

McLean, Neil; Price, Linda – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019
Studies into the efficacy of teacher development courses for early career academics point to graduates conceiving of their teaching in increasingly complex and student-focussed ways.

Maesse, Jens – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2017
From the 1990s onwards, economics departments in Europe have changed toward a culture of "excellence." Strong academic hierarchies and new forms of academic organization replace "institutes" and "colleges" by fully equipped "economics departments." This article seeks to demonstrate how and why…

Academic careers are social processes which involve many members of large populations over long periods of time. This paper outlines a discursive perspective which looks into how academics are categorized in academic systems.

Kim, Terri – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2017
Academic mobility has existed since ancient times. Recently, however, academic mobility--the crossing of international borders by academics who then work "overseas"--has increased.

Schartner, Alina; Cho, Yoonjoo – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2017
This paper reports on a mixed-methods case study investigating how higher education staff and students understand, experience and envision the "international university."

This article presents the results of a textual analysis conducted on policy discourses on international students in the UK between 1999 and 2013.

One key rationale is that international…

Hamann, Julian – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2016
Far from allowing a governance of universities by the invisible hand of market forces, research performance assessments do not just measure differences in research quality, but yield themselves visible symptoms in terms of a stratification and standardization of disciplines. The article illustrates this with a case study of UK history departments…
