Enhancing research capacity of universities is considered as a major response to the global competition by East Asian countries. Two initiatives are widely used in the higher education (HE) sectors of the region to increase their research capacity: role differentiation and network building. The former refers to institutional arrangements that differentiate research and flagship universities from the rest of the system (Mohrman et al. 2008). The latter is to encourage the establishment and development of closer ties to the international knowledge networks through research collaboration and staff recruitment (Postiglione 2013). Both initiatives serve the goal of increasing the visibility and participation of the local academics in the global academic community. Copyright © 2015 John N. Hawkins and Ka Ho Mok.
