Research Productivity and Academics' Conceptions of Research
Brew, Angela; Boud, David; Namgung, Sang Un; Lucas, Lisa; Crawford, Karin
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, v71 n5 p681-697 May 2016
This paper asks the question: do people with different levels of research productivity and identification as a researcher think of research differently? It discusses a study that differentiated levels of research productivity among English and Australian academics working in research-intensive environments in three broad discipline areas: science, engineering and technology; social science and humanities; and medicine and health sciences. The paper explores the different conceptions of research held by these academics in terms of their levels of research productivity, their levels of research training, whether they considered themselves an active researcher and a member of a research team, and their disciplinary differences.
