Jones, Glen A.; Jefferson, Alison Elizabeth – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
This paper illuminates how three distinct but complementary concepts can be used to explain the prevalence of inbreeding in some contexts and the absence or limited frequency of inbreeding in others. The concepts of internal and external labour markets can be useful in understanding the academic labour market conditions that may support or…

Tavares, Orlanda; Sin, Cristina; Sá, Carla; Bugla, Sylwia; Amaral, Alberto – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
The aim of this paper is to analyse the relationship between academic inbreeding in Portugal and research collaboration, using co-authored publications as proxies. As previous research has shown that inbreeding is detrimental for research collaborations, it is hypothesised that academic inbreeding will lead to smaller research networks and,…

Kulikowski, Konrad; Przytula, Sylwia; Sulkowski, Lukasz – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
During the COVID-19 pandemic, universities worldwide are going into 'emergency mode'--radically transforming education by switching to online and e-learning education. In the face of these emergent changes, many academic teachers who are unwilling to use e-learning or who lack the appropriate competences are suddenly being forced to teach via…

Recently, a number of inbreeding cases have surfaced that have fuelled public criticism of recruitment practices and the lack of mobility in the Swedish higher education sector. This study focuses on recruitment practices at Swedish universities, particularly the divergence between what seems to be a practice of hiring internal candidates and a…

Macfarlane, Bruce; Jefferson, Alison Elizabeth – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Academic inbreeding is a deeply ingrained practice which needs to be understood by reference to the medieval guilds. Drawing on the guild concept and associated benefits of forms of capital, a distinction is drawn between 'guild-route' academics who have followed a privileged, linear path into academe and their 'non-guild' counterparts who tend to…

Shibayama, Sotaro – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Producing original knowledge is the foundation of scientific progress. Originality is associated with certain skills and practices that can be trained and socialised. This study investigates how inbreeding as a career practice influences the socialisation of originality. An analysis based on a sample of mid-career life scientists in Japan finds…

Horta, Hugo; Meoli, Michele; Santos, João M. – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Academic inbreeding is a phenomenon that has been studied mostly from the standpoint of its association with research productivity. The focus has been on knowledge creation outputs and outcomes, while little to no attention has been given to the association of academic inbreeding with knowledge creation strategies and processes in academia. This…

Early Warning Systems (EWS) in higher education accommodate student counsellors by identifying at-risk students and allow them to intervene in a timely manner to prevent student dropout. This study evaluates an EWS that shares student-specific risk information with student counsellors, which was implemented at a large Dutch university. A…

Seeber, Marco; Mampaey, Jelle – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Studies on academic inbreeding have mostly focused on institutional inbreeding and its negative effects, whereas little research has explored its causes. We identify current explanations of the macro-, meso- and micro-level factors that sustain academic inbreeding as well as research gaps. We address a main research gap regarding what macro-level…

Mudrak, Jiri; Zabrodska, Katerina; Machovcova, Katerina; Cidlinska, Katerina; Takacs, Lea – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Diverse influences on national higher education (HE) systems result in variability in organisational cultures in academic workplaces. We implemented the competing values model of organisational culture to explore the departmental cultures at Czech public universities and the workplace perceptions of academics from different cultures. The…

McNaughtan, Jon; Thacker, Russell; Eicke, Dustin; Freeman, Sydney – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Faculty engage in several institutional activities typically categorised as teaching, research and service. Within those activities there are numerous potential tasks, and research denotes that faculty often bemoan this work which can lead to turnover and lack of commitment. We present the job crafting framework as one way to allow faculty to be…

This paper explores integrity dilemmas experienced by Russian academics in the context of building a world-class university. Interviews with professors and managers of major research universities in Moscow provide critical insights into the organisational and attitudinal incongruities generated by a coercive state--a challenge that Russia has been…

Several specific characteristics have affected the way the European higher education sector has responded to the multiple crises engendered by the pandemic and will help shape the post-pandemic picture in relation to internationalisation. Mobility, internationalisation at home, and the region's social responsibility agenda are areas that have been…

Lee, Boon L.; Johnes, Jill – Higher Education Quarterly, 2022
Current literature on higher education (HE) performance only considers the production of graduates and not graduate employment. The latter needs to be factored into the HE production model as it not only measures the true impact of HE institutions (HEIs), but also provides policy implications on how resources should be allocated. Furthermore, the…
