Example text

The authors’ analysis suggests that “the degree to which most universities are competitive in recruiting international students will increasingly be shaped by the scope and character of their global network rather than any intrinsic characteristics of their individual courses, culture, or campuses” (236).

Yet, the status of knowledge is calculated only for knowledge codified in refereed papers, monographs, and other formal mechanisms. A third category of knowledge remains outside the regulation of value: research, scholarship, ideas and other knowledge and information created in universities (and elsewhere) which is neither sold in a market nor counted and ranked in a status system—that is, works in the form of open-source knowledge.
