Bates, Agnieszka; Godon, Rafal – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017

Naveed, Arif; Sakata, Nozomi; Kefallinou, Anthoula; Young, Sara; Anand, Kusha – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017
This Forum issue discusses the centrality of the fieldwork in doctoral research.

Since the standard methodology textbooks do not sufficiently guide on addressing such challenges, doctoral researchers go…

Jankowska, Maja – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2011
This article reflects on and discusses Central and Eastern European (CEE) learners' adaptability and achievement in one English post-1992 university.
