Abstract

The third university mission is constantly changing in an attempt to keep up with social, economic and cultural demands. Measuring the activities of the university and sharing it with society is meeting the principles of governance, such as transparency, accountability and responsibility. This article aims to identify possible indicators of the third university mission and the main concepts and constructs related to the theme. A systematic literature review (RSL) and bibliometric analysis was carried out using the Systematic Search Flow (SSF) method. It is concluded that measuring the activities of the third university mission and its social impacts, despite all academic and governmental efforts, is not an easy task. The difficulty lies in the multiple activities and interpretations of what the third mission is, however, as a result of the research, the main indicators covering the theme will be presented.
