Madikizela-Madiya, Nomanesi – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
The publish or perish aphorism declares publishing a condition for survival in academe.

In this article, I contribute to the vast debates about this aphorism by arguing that its…

Vaugh, Trevor; Finnegan-Kessie, Threase; White, Amalia; Baker, Síofra; Valencia, Aldo – Higher Education Research and Development, 2022
Members of the Higher Education (HE) community have embodied the spirit of designers by identifying needs and creatively responding with speed, agility and ingenuity as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
