Budd, Richard – European Journal of Higher Education, 2018

Jensen, Dorthe Høj; Jetten, Jolanda – European Journal of Higher Education, 2018
A large body of work shows that the development of students' academic and professional identity positively predicts achievement in higher education.

Králiková, Renáta – European Journal of Higher Education, 2015
In the early 2000s, several post-communist countries launched reforms of university management and governance marked by the influence of a "modernization agenda" for higher education governance, which was promoted by the World Bank, the OECD and the European Commission.
