Faculty Perceptions of Policy-Related Factors in Academic Research.
Toombs, William; Friedman, Renee
Similarities and differences in attitudes and values among research faculty on items related to the nature of their work, the criteria sets for evaluating it, and the social and physical conditions under which it is performed are examined. Patterns of research activity are found to fall along lines that do not exactly correspond to the administrative structure that is designed to serve teaching, service, and maintenance of the organization itself. By means of a project-proposal system and peer-panel review at the inception of each project, a minimum of organizational disturbance would be introduced. (Author/KE)
