November 30, 2005

Big science questions  
What is life about? How did the universe start? What is time? Eighteen of the world's leading thinkers present their personal answers to our most fundamental questions in this Times Higher  series.

  World Education Market 2002  
Published as a special supplement in The Times Higher on 17 May 2002, this collection of articles focuses on the 2002 World Education Market which took place in Lisbon, Portugal, 21-24 May 2002.

  100 years of the Nobel  
In a special supplement, guest edited by Sir Harry Kroto, a host of Nobel prize winners write about their priorities for the 21st century, the responsibilities of being a laureate and the challenges for education.

  The ownership of knowledge  
How can the public good of free access to information be balanced against the commercial necessity of paying for its creation? And what is the impact of the digital economy? In March 2001 The Times Higher  began a series of articles on intellectual property rights and the implications for research and higher education.

  Student Focus  
Debt coexists with designer clothes and mobile phones. Student accommodation standards are rising, but more are choosing to live at home. Political radicalism has waned, but students are far from apathetic about global issues. Seven articles on student life set the background to a major Times Higher/ Mori survey on student attitudes.

  Millennium Magazine 2001  
Our first Millennium Magazine looked back over the past 1,000 years of intellectual achievement. This follow-up looks forward and asks by what values we should live in the years to come.
