Reflecting about Current Trends in Higher Education Research

A View from the Journals
  • Pedro Nuno Teixeira
Part of the Higher Education Research in the 21st Century Series book series (CHER)


Being mainly a field of studies and not a discipline, higher education has had to develop an institutional network in order to support and nurture the community of higher education researchers. Researchers working on new fields have to develop persistent and effective networks of communication with the rest of the practitioners in the field and consolidate themselves as an intellectual community (Knorr Cetina, 1999; Becher & Trowler, 2001).
