Getting Pole Position: Research Strategies in the Humanities at Swedish Universities
Geschwind, Lars
Tertiary Education and Management, v16 n2 p115-127 Jun 2010
The aim of this paper is to study research strategies in the Humanities in Sweden. The Swedish higher education sector is under transformation and a new funding system has been proposed. The study investigates the university strategy processes, mainly at the dean's level. The results show that most institutions are active in order to be well prepared when a new funding system is launched. There are, however, big differences between universities in attitudes towards the proposed changes as well as the level of activity. (Contains 1 figure.)
