Women, Research Performance and Work Context
Dever, Maryanne; Morrison, Zoe
Tertiary Education and Management, v15 n1 p49-62 Mar 2009
This article presents findings from a qualitative study focused on the conditions that support high research productivity in women. Interviewees were all active researchers and many were national or international leaders in their respective fields. While personal factors such as motivation, focus, and good scholarly habits were identified as influencing their research success, interviewees also placed significant emphasis on aspects of their workplace culture and practice (teaching and research connections, degrees of flexibility, work-family interface) that they felt were equally important in determining their options and opportunities for conducting research. This suggests that universities concerned with enhancing the research performance of staff need to recognize--and respond to--how workplace dynamics and culture shape individual research participation.
