That Obscure Object of Desire: The Management of Academic Knowledge
Sousa, Celio A. A.; Hendriks, Paul H. J.
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v45 n3 p259-274 Sep 2007
For academic administrators, the management of research remains a matter more of hope than expectation. It has proved particularly difficult to measure quality. Managers typically view research as an "asset". This essay argues that it is more useful to view research and its management as "process", and explores the implications of doing so for managers and researchers alike.
