On Commodification and the Governance of Academic Research
Jacob, Merle
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v47 n4 p391-405 Dec 2009
The new prominence given to science for economic growth and industry comes with an increased policy focus on the promotion of commodification and commercialization of academic science. This paper posits that this increased interest in commodification is a new steering mechanism for governing science. This is achieved by first outlining what is meant by the commodification of scientific knowledge through reviewing a selection of literatures on the concept of commodification. The paper concludes with a discussion of how commodification functions as a means for governing science.
