McLean, Neil; Price, Linda – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019

Spence, Crawford – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019
This article argues that universities currently privilege an instrumental "ethos of measurement" in the management of academic work. Such an ethos has deleterious consequences, both for knowledge production and knowledge transfer to students. Specifically, evidence points towards the production of increasingly well-crafted and ever more…

Yang, Rui; Xie, Meng; Wen, Wen – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019
Since the mid-nineteenth century, Chinese intellectuals turned to the West for truth. China's modern education system has since been built upon Western experience, with little space for China's vast indigenous intellectual traditions. Meanwhile, Chinese traditions remain omnipresent and ubiquitous in the society. Due to many fundamental…

In 2014, Japan's Ministry of Education (MEXT) announced the Top Global University Project (TGUP), a large-investment initiative to internationalise higher education that implicitly signalled increased emphasis on English-medium instruction (EMI) at Japanese universities. Despite substantial funding behind the initiative, little research has…

Benavides, Martin; Arellano, Adriana; Zárate Vásquez, Julio Sebastián – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019
National higher education systems have undergone a series of transformations in recent decades. Since the 1980s, regulatory systems governing higher education have witnessed a number of changes.
