A Conceptual Framework for the Future of Successful Research Administration
Lintz, Elizabeth M.
Journal of Research Administration, v39 n2 p68-80 Fall 2008
Research administration has experienced dramatic changes over the past decades. As scientific research has evolved, higher education institutions have tried to adapt, with varying degrees of success. This paper presents a conceptual framework based on six cornerstones of research administration: mission, information, communication, collaboration, transition or transformation, and outcomes. Within these cornerstones are key strategies that research administrators can apply according to their needs, resources, history, and goals. The purpose and importance of such a framework is to give research administrators a strategic role in leading their institutions into the highly competitive scientific research environment of the future. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
