Management for Research in U.S. Universities.
Woodrow, Raymond J.
A distinction is made between management for research and management of research. The former refers to the provision of a nourishing climate, sound policies supporting services of various kinds, financial systems, and organizational arrangements that will help research to flourish in a university. It exists to support the management of research, a function of primary investigators. General and specific matters of concern in management for research include: (1) the institutional climate (enlightened attitudes of governing bodies, officers, and administrators; research emphasis in appointments, advancements, and faculty workloads; institutional funds; basic versus applied research needs); (2) policies and criteria (external control; relation to the curriculum; student participation and faculty supervision; qualified and committed personnel; dissemination of results; conflicts of interest; disclosure of sponsorship); (3) developing and implementing sponsored research (development and review of proposals; seeking sponsors; proposal submission, negotiation, activation, monitoring, and completion; implementing sponsor requirements; research administration organization); (4) interdisciplinary research; (5) professional personnel other than faculty; (6) patents and copyrights; (7) indirect costs (calculation and negotiation); (8) administrative offices and supporting services and facilities; and (9) organizational structures and considerations. A preferred system of management for research is briefly outlined. (MSE)
