HKU, in partnership with Elsevier, hosted an international colloquium on hot topics related to citations, impact and international ranking on May 12, 2017, providing a forum for critical discussion of developments, challenges and potential solutions in higher education. Attracting some 200 participants from Hong Kong, mainland China, Asia, Europe and North America, the colloquium is part of a series aimed at generating dialogue and progress in key areas affecting international research communities.
The University of Hong Kong, in partnership with Elsevier, is taking the initiative to discuss these pertinent and emerging issues with various stakeholders.
This is an opportunity for us to present our ideas, findings, challenges and solutions and to chart the path forward. This is a forum for the 3 “D’s”: discussion, dialogue and debate.
It is also an important opportunity to shape our future in matters that concern us deeply.
We thank all speakers and panel members for their time, effort and ideas, and we very much look forward to your participation.
