Brinkley-Etzkorn, Karen E.; Lane, India – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
Actions of academic chairs can dramatically affect a university's effectiveness and productivity, yet many department heads move into their roles without having experienced any training on many key aspects of the job.

Harris, Candice; Myers, Barbara; Ravenswood, Katherine – Studies in Higher Education, 2019

To this date, research on the interplay between organisational structure/managerial and organisational value/psychological elements which impact on educational quality is scarce and fragmented.

Pietilä, Maria – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
Research has shown that a tenure track incorporates both commitment and control aspects: the career system offers junior-level academics long-term job prospects, but subjects them to performance control.
