Cox, Andrew M. – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2018
Changes in pedagogy to emphasise independent study and group work have increased the need for informal learning spaces on campuses. University libraries have been quick to respond to this need, partly because of the decline in book lending and partly because of technology enablers. Furthermore, new types of buildings that combine many types of…

Ortlieb, Renate; Weiss, Silvana – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2018
The early stages of an academic career are fraught with insecurity. By focusing on the individual and his or her background, this article sets out to analyse and develop theories for this insecurity. We see academic career insecurity as a mix of how much someone wants to pursue a job in academia and what they feel is the probability of reaching…

Harland, Tony; Wald, Navé – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2018
This paper examines the concept of 'powerful knowledge' and provides new perspectives on an important emergent theory for education. We claim that the key to attaining powerful knowledge is 'epistemic access' to the discipline, which is access of the generative principles of knowledge creation. We draw on 15 years teaching and researching a…

Santos, João M.; Horta, Hugo – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2018

Gerhards, Jürgen; Hans, Silke; Drewski, Daniel – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2018
The global academic system is hierarchically structured between a center, a semi-periphery and a periphery. We analyze to what extent the position of a country and a university within this hierarchy of scientific reputation shapes doctoral students' chances of international mobility. We conducted an exploratory experimental study using fake…
