Management of Interdisciplinary Research in Universities Faces Problems.
Newell, William T.; And Others
In this paper certain problems and issues which can be identified from the existing literature concerning the management of interdisciplinary research in the university environment are discussed. In a review of literature concerning multidisciplinary research, recurrent problems and issues were grouped into the following categories: (1) environmental issues, (2) managerial issues, (3) behavioral issues, and (4) other miscellaneous issues. Specially, environmental topics relate to the university as the environment of research, including its administration and organizational structure. Managerial issues deal with those aspects of management which involve selection of personnel, supervision and control, and project evaluation. Behavioral considerations include problems concerning individuality, education, and status, and the miscellaneous category is devoted to issues dealing with the research process itself. A cross-reference with these issues and 25 studies concerning research management is provided. (Author/CP)
