Research in the Age of the Steady-State University. AAAS Selected Symposium 60.
Phillips, Don I., Ed.; Shen, Benjamin, S. P., Ed.
Based on an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) symposium, this book examines the future of academic research in light of the following: (1) direct funds for basic science had increased for 4 to 5 years, and nonbudget items (i.e., declining enrollments) had become of increasing concern; (2) the Sloan Commission on Government and Higher Education and the National Commission on Research had examined aspects of the relationship between research and higher education; (3) the Higher Education Act of 1965, the primary national legislation affecting colleges and universities and their students, was up for renewal in 1980; and (4) the first report on the "Five-Year Outlook for Science and Technology" was released by the National Academy of Sciences in late 1979. Following the introduction, "The Future of Academic Research" (Don I. Phillips), chapters include: "Research Universities and the Future: Challenges and Opportunities" (Gilbert S. Omenn and Denis J. Prager); "University Research: Congressional Perspective" (George E. Brown, Jr.); "Government Accountability Requirements for Research Funds" (John J. Lordan); "The View from the Research Laboratory" (Raymond Orbach); "A Survey of Undergraduate Chemical Research" (J. N. Spencer and Claude H. Yoder); "New Academic Positions: The Outlook in Europe, Canada, and the United States" (Charles V. Kidd); "Research Centers and Non-Faculty Researchers: A New Academic Role" (Albert H. Teich); and "An Interdisciplinary Look at Science Policy in an Age of Decreased Funding" (C. West Churchman). (LC)
