Haapakorpi, Arja; Geirsdóttir, Guðrún; Jóhannsdóttir, Gyða – European Journal of Higher Education, 2013

Gornitzka, Åse – European Journal of Higher Education, 2013
The nexus between research and policy in higher education as in other sectors of society is multimodal and not adequately captured by the notion of a cultural gap between the world of practice and the world of research.

Dilger, Alexander; Müller, Harry – European Journal of Higher Education, 2013
