The Research on Higher Education Program. Swedish Research on Higher Education, 1984-5.
Information on the Research on Higher Education Program in Sweden is presented. After an overview of the program, a bibliography of current studies by subject area, and descriptive information on current studies are provided. The research program was given an independent status within higher education research and development. The program deals with four main fields of inquiry: the role of higher education in society, the organization of higher education, the research function, and the educational function. All these areas are studied in a multidisciplinary approach whereby problems are analyzed both structurally and in process and individual perspectives. The program uses the research approaches of the humanities and the social sciences, as well as the study topics of the natural sciences and technology. The percentage of grants by discipline for 1971-1984 is tabulated. In addition, a table summarizes the research publications by disciplines and language (Swedish/English). Profiles on 26 studies include an abstract, the college department involved, the project leader, and the project period. (SW)
