ESEP THEME SECTION


Global university rankings uncovered

Idea: Konstantinos Stergiou
Editors: K.I. Stergiou and A.C. Tsikliras (Guest Editor)

Global university rankings, a recent tool for the assessment of higher education institutions, have attained growing attention from university administrations and faculty members, markets, governments, mass media and the public at large. University rankings may affect all aspects directly or indirectly related to academia, such as: university and department curricula, funding and reputation; student admissions, fees and job prospects; faculty member recruitment, promotion and wages; and publication records in terms of both quantity and quality. The articles in this Theme Section cover different methodological, socio-political, economical and ethical ‘hot issues’ emerging from the dominance of rankings in the higher education sector.
