: Call for book reviews open




The RUSC, Universities and Knowledge Society Journal aims to strengthen the review section and turn it into a regular section in the journal. We believe that this section can become a useful means of sharing knowledge among everyone interested in the journal's field of study, both to discover new books and to share the books that we already know with the rest of the community.

 Subject areas

We are interested in receiving reviews of books that fall within the journal's field of study:

  • University models in the knowledge society
  • Educational models and use of technology in higher education
  • Open access systems in the use of learning materials
  • Technology models and free and open-source software
  • Transformations to the learning processes in higher education based on the use of ICTs
  • The organisational and administrative perspective in the use of ICTs in higher education institutions
  • University leadership and governance in the knowledge society
  • Models for university presence on the web
