Departmental Responses to Fluctuation in Research Resources.
Parker, Linda E.; Clark, David L.
Research Management Review, v4 n1 p19-34 Spr 1990
Consequences of two university departments' dependence on fluctuating research funding and their responses to it are examined, focusing on juggling dependence-based problems with graduate student education, instrumentation needs, grant discontinuation, faculty recruitment, and planning. The combination of institutional decentralization and the individual entrepreneur approach in academic science is seen as maladaptive. (Author/MSE)
