A paper by Andrey Lovakov and Maria Yudkevich is published in Higher Education

The paper “The Post-Soviet Publication Landscape for Higher Education Research” by Andrey Lovakov, Research Fellow at CInSt, and Maria Yudkevich, Director of CInSt, has been published in Higher Education.

The authors study articles on higher education published in academic journals by post-Soviet researchers in the last three decades. The authors find that post-Soviet countries contribute differently to the overall publication output. In comparison with a sample of international articles, post-Soviet authors publish a substantially smaller share of research articles, and articles about teaching and learning issues, student experience and outcomes, and academic work, but a larger share of policy-related articles and articles about system policy and history. Moreover, researchers from post-Soviet countries collaborate much less within their countries compared with authors from the international sample. At the same time, scholars from different post-Soviet countries do not collaborate with each other. This analysis demonstrates the disunity of the community of post-Soviet scholars disconnected by national borders.
