An Ideology of Multiversity System



           The ideology of having a multiversity is not new for 20th century as it was contemplated by many people in early 70s. However, this ideology becomes a possible after the MIT-USA and Harvard University USA have collectively announced the online education in 2012 though the MIT-USA has started its services in 1999 as MIT-Opencourseware before youtube emerges. The full credit goes to edx without second thought. Advan-kt Multiversity Inc. USA supports this initiatives and therefore we recognize all their certificates and programs for credit transfer with Advan-kt's Partner Universities.


Multiversity, A Global Thinking



PaulWildman, From The Monophonic University to Polyphonic Multiversities, Futures, 1998

Futures aims to build substantive research and knowledge about the relationships between humanity and its possible futures. It welcomes: new knowledge about humanity's diverse anticipatory practices and how to understand, challenge, develop or enhance them; novel futures-oriented research emerging at the intersections between and beyond disciplines that provides insights into humanity's (and posthumanity's) changing relationship with the future; and the highest quality scholarship in the field of futures/prospective studies.

All areas of sociology are welcome in the American Sociological Review. Emphasis is on exceptional quality and general interest. The American Sociological Review does not publish book reviews.

Claire Donovan, From Multiversity to Postmodern University, Routledge Handbook of the Sociology of Higher Education, 2016

          This chapter outlines the idea of the multiversity and of the postmodern university, and describes their defining features. It explores these concepts using three examples: the university community, university governance, and the role of the university within wider society. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the concepts of the multiversity and postmodern university, what they do and do not share in common, and what questions these competing visions of the university raise for the understanding of higher education institutions (HEIs) today.

George McCully, Multiversity and University, The Journal of Higher Education, 1973

           Founded in 1930, The Journal of Higher Education publishes original research reporting on the academic study of higher education as a broad enterprise. We publish the highest quality empirical, theoretically grounded work addressing the main functions of higher education and the dynamic role of the university in society. We seek to publish scholarship from a wide variety of theoretical perspectives and disciplinary orientations. Articles appearing in the Journal employ an array of methodological approaches, and we welcome work from scholars across a range of career stages. Comparative and international scholarship should make clear connections to the U.S. context. Manuscripts not appropriate for submission to the Journal include purely theoretical papers, methodological treatises, unsolicited essays and reviews, and non-academic, institutional, and program evaluations or reports.

           SSRN is an open-access online preprint community providing valuable services to leading academic schools and government institutions. Specializing primarily in social sciences, including economics, law, corporate governance, and humanities, SSRN is branching out in to other science disciplines providing opportunities for scholars to post their early research, collaborate on theories and discoveries, and get credit for their ideas before peer reviewed publication. SSRN is instrumental as a starting point for PhD students, professors, and institutional faculty to post early-stage research, prior to publication in academic journals.
