Call for papers: Virtual University

A special issue of International Journal of Management in Education

The Virtual University is a new way to organise academic work, including research and studies. The Virtual University has, at the same time, pedagogical, social, managerial and technological aspects. This way it is an interesting area for research in a wide range of scientific disciplines. Therefore, this special issue will be a timely issue for institutions and practitioners who are interested in the phenomena of wider utilisation of ICT in higher education organisations, especially from the management point of view.

The special issue provides a global forum for presenting authoritative references, academically rigorous research and case studies in both theoretical and applied research. Its purpose is to discuss the effective management in virtual universities. Specifically, it intends to disseminate research and studies in the situation where university management has to cope with traditional academic work and the virtual university type of approach.

The subject coverage of this special issue includes, but is not limited to:
  • Management of the virtual university
  • University networks
  • Management of educational ICT innovations in universities
  • Analysis of political, economical, social, legal and cultural environment in the virtual university
