The Academic Researcher Role: Enhancing Expectations and Improved Performance
Kyvik, Svein
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, v65 n4 p525-538 Apr 2013
This article distinguishes between six tasks related to the academic researcher role: (1) networking; (2) collaboration; (3) managing research; (4) doing research; (5) publishing research; and (6) evaluation of research. Data drawn from surveys of academic staff, conducted in Norwegian universities over three decades, provide evidence that the researcher role has become more demanding with respect to all sub-roles, and that academic staff have responded to increasing external and internal demands by enhancing their role performance.
