The Research on Higher Education Program: An Overview. Swedish Research on Higher Education, 1985:8.
Information is provided on the Swedish National Board of Universities and Colleges' research on higher education program. An extensive (20-page) list of 1983-1985 publications of the research groups is included, followed by brief descriptions of 23 studies in progress, along with the project leader's name and institutional location. The percentage of grants since 1971 is indicated in four-year clusters for the following areas of research: the role of higher education in society, content and organization, the research function, and the educational function. Information is also provided on: the percentage of research grants by discipline since 1971; the extent of publishing in books, journal articles, and papers/reports by discipline; and publishing frequencies by 10 departments. Analysis of the content of the research programs reveals: the program began with studies of education and its organization, but has recently focused on research and its conditions at universities; while most of the research is conducted by social scientists and humanists, the topics of study are often located in the natural sciences and technology; and the journal article is the commonest form of publication.
