The purpose of this page is to share reference lists, bibliographies, and literature reviews on various subjects in higher education research. This is an ongoing collaborative initiative, which means that the page is continuously updated.
Why is this important?
The field of higher education studies covers a broad range of topics, which it examines by drawing on virtually all social-scientific disciplines and with the help of an ever-growing arsenal of research methods. To many early-career researchers entering the field, the amount of research even on a seemingly narrow topic can be overwhelming. Also, the field itself is so vast and diverse that navigating it can pose challenges also to more experienced colleagues. However, this does not mean that we cannot identify and examine the bodies of knowledge that emerge around specific subjects of interest to higher education scholars.
How can I contribute?
If you wish to contribute, either with your own list of must-reads on a specific subject, or with a review which you have not published elsewhere, you are more than welcome to do so. Just send us an email. Any format is fine, from a simple list of references on a specific topic to a fully developed review, and anything in between. We also include bibliographies published elsewhere by simply linking them on this page. The list does not have to be complete (no such list probably can be) and you can even update it from time to time if you wish.
