The impact of universities on the UK economy

This report examines the higher education sector’s contribution to the UK economy in the academic year 2011–12, the latest for which figures were available at the time this research was commissioned. The report provides new figures following a similar study in 2009.

The role of ‘R’ in open science

R is crossing over from just calculating statistics to scientific experimentation–and it’s bringing hacker culture with it. Read on
