The network is an online resource dedicated to empirical quantitative research into higher education.

  • A blog which quantitative researchers and economists researching higher education issues can post short abstracts or op-eds promoting their new research. All members of the network, including other academics, policy makers and the media will be able to view the posts and comment on them
  • A member list, featuring the contact details of all researchers in the network including details of the HE related projects they are working on – so other network members, such as policy makers or funders, can get in touch

 2.       Who runs the network?

The network was set up and is run by Richard Murphy and Gill Wyness  of the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics

Anyone with an interest in quantitative higher education research can join the network. We welcome quantitative researchers and economists, but also policy makers, funders and the media

 4.       Who can post articles on the blog?

Quantitative researchers or economists can post articles on the blog, promoting a new piece of research, or commenting on current issues related to higher education, with a quantitative slant

 6.       What will I gain from being in the network?

Researchers will gain

  • Opportunities for collaboration: through blog posts and the contacts page, researchers can learn what other researchers are working on

Policy makers and the media will gain
