The Deanship and Its Faculty Interpreters: Do Mertonian Norms of Science Translate into Norms for Administration?
Bray, Nathaniel J.
Journal of Higher Education, v81 n3 p284-316 May-Jun 2010
This study presents research comparing faculty-held norms for academic deans' behavior to Mertonian norms of science. Findings indicate that while some elements of Mertonian norms hold true, it is not the best pattern of grouping faculty expectations for deans. Implications for research and practice are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
