Institutional attitudes towards research-related academic integrity in recently internationalizing higher education institutions: A comparative analysis of Chinese and Turkish HEIs

Higher education systems throughout the world are mostly based on the institutions and values of the Western education system. World university ranking systems, quality assurance mechanisms, assessment frameworks, promotion, and evaluation systems are universalized. Many universities in developing countries have now joined these ranking systems and introduced vigorous faculty promotion criteria to create world-class universities. Research reveals that those who publish in predatory journals are mostly young and inexperienced researchers from developing countries. China and Turkey are among the countries frequently associated with predatory journals and related academic corruption schemes. In this chapter, both regulations and discourses that shape the institutional cultures in these two countries that are in close cooperation with the EU regarding higher education are examined. It is concluded that there is a global diffusion of rules and values, and national identity construction processes influence actual practices.

Most research on student sojourners has studied students coming from the Majority World to Western countries, especially the United States, for undergraduate and graduate education. Though increasing greatly in numbers, shorter sojourn has not been the focus of attention. With regard to the adjustment of sojourners, research has tended to stress situational factors rather than personality. This study is different in terms of focusing on short term educational sojourn of Western students in a Majority World ...

We found that visions of faculty members and administrators are in line in that they describe internationalization more from an activity approach and competen...

Between Employment and Unemployment: Un(der)employment Experience of University Graduates Working at Chain Stores in Turkey
İnce, Halil Can; Erdoğan, Necmi; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2022-9-30)
In Turkey, the rapid massification of higher education over the past fifteen years has made university education accessible to a significant portion of the population while relativizing the advantage of education in terms of finding a job. The university education, which is regarded by large portions of society as a means of securing a “white-collar” job and, therefore, “upward mobility,” has largely lost its function. In Turkey, the country with the youngest population in Europe, where one out of every ten...

In line with this understanding, this study aimed to investigate the perceptions of three significant stakeholder groups – teachers, academicians and related government officials – regarding the curricular policymaking processes in Türkiye. This qual...
