Lili Yang; Yusuf Ikbal Oldac; Jacob Oppong Nkansah – Higher Education Research and Development, 2024
Global science is more networked and connected than ever before.

Shan, H.; Ren, Z.; Ma, Y. – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Studies of Chinese (visiting) international doctoral students typically focus on how students are socialized into the Western academy.
