Generalized Net Models of Academic Promotion and Doctoral Candidature
In a series of research papers, the authors have studied some of the most important features of the principal operations within universities and have constructed Generalized Net (GN) models to describe them. The main focus in this paper is to analyse the process of academic promotion through the hierarchy in higher education and the preparation of PhD candidates.
