Spring Issue of Higher Education in Russia and Beyond Now Available
The 11th issue of Higher Education in Russia and Beyond, a journal aimed at bringing current Russian, Central Asian and Eastern European educational trends to the attention of the global academic community, is now available. This issue’s main focus is ‘National Academic Journals: between Survival and Prosperity’.
The new issue expands our view of trends and challenges in academic publishing in the context of ongoing globalization. Globalization has not only pushed universities towards fiercer competition, but also impacted the entire academic publishing industry. National publishers in Eastern Europe and Central Asia now find themselves under new demands and challenges as they are recognized by authors, universities and policy-makers as ‘aggregators’ of academic residues. In this regard, the authors spell out different visions and strategies for academic publishing and their potential effects at the global and local levels.
Furthermore, the issue’s section ‘Communication and Miscommunication in Academic Publishing’ describes various contemporary developments in the world of academic publishing. Authors share their concerns about challenges in contemporary academic publishing, paying special attention to the national contexts in which many journals find themselves.
The second part is devoted to three specific cases in regards to academic publishing — Kazakhstan, Slovenia, and Russia. Finally, the last part of this issue presents examples of national academic journals, which are focused on becoming internationally recognized. The editors of leading Russian journals in three fields of study share their experience and reflections on this important and pressing problem.
