Invisible Intermediaries: A Systematic Review into the Role of Research Management in University and Institutional Research Processes
Derrick, Gemma; Nickson, Alicen
Journal of Research Administration, v45 n2 p11-45 Fall 2014
The introduction of competitive rankings and research assessment frameworks have necessitated that research organisations continually monitor their research strengths and weaknesses. Such monitoring is essential to be able to strategically respond in a competitive environment. There is little research on the role of research management in research organisations, including universities, but the literature suggests that when implemented well, research management is an essential component of the research process. Despite this, an evidence-based understanding of the strategies available for successful research management is lacking. In order for organisations to structure their research management strategies more efficiently, as well as to inform practitioners of the best way to deliver their service, an understanding of the evidence for successful research management strategies is needed. The aim of this article is to provide a systematic review to investigate the evidence base for successful research management strategies.
