From Inventory to Insight: Making Sense of the Global Landscape of Higher Education Research, Training, and Publication
Rumbley, Laura E.; Stanfield, David A.; de Gayardon, Ariane
Studies in Higher Education, v39 n8 p1293-1305 2014
Through a yearlong study, the Boston College Center for International Higher Education developed a (third edition) global inventory of higher education research centers/institutes, academic programs, and journals/publications. As higher education expands globally, these resources are essential for training effective leaders and producing research that guides decision-making and policy. Since the 2006 edition of this inventory, numbers of centers, programs, and journals have increased dramatically, and globally. However, these units and initiatives continue to be more prevalent in developed countries, a worrisome trend when considering the importance of higher education for development everywhere. Detailed analysis and insight is offered on centers' and programs' focus areas, geographic dispersion, degrees offered, years of establishment, and other relevant information.
