De Moortel, Kevin; Crispeels, Thomas; Xie, Jinyu; Jing, Qiaosong – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
Temporary international mobility is an increasingly relevant practice amongst academics. However, current literature lacks understanding on whether such mobility influences the individual academics' entrepreneurial knowledge. This paper hypothesizes that temporary international academic mobility is conducive to the academic's entrepreneurial…

Lekka-Kowalik, Agnieszka – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
In 2015, Willem Halffman and Hans Radder published in "Minerva" a paper, in which they diagnosed that our universities are colonized by "The Wolf of management." Using the example of the reforms afflicting the Polish academic world, I show that this colonization has intensified, and apart from the processes described in the…

Grunert, Cathleen; Ludwig, Katja – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
At the intersection of science studies and higher education research, this contribution looks at the way in which the requirements of universities as organizations release development dynamics in academic disciplines and it analyses the interaction between discipline and organization. We will analyse German educational science, bearing in mind it…

Hoang, Cuong Huu; Dang, Trang Thi Doan – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
Given the importance of research communities and research mentoring activities in developing research skills, universities around the world have paid special attention to improving these two dimensions. However, developing research communities and research mentoring culture in Vietnamese universities largely remain at a nascent stage because these…

Gläser, Jochen; Ash, Mitchell; Buenstorf, Guido; Hopf, David; Hubenschmid, Lara; Janßen, Melike; Laudel, Grit; Schimank, Uwe; Stoll, Marlene; Wilholt, Torsten; Zechlin, Lothar; Lieb, Klaus – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
The independence of research is a key strategic issue of modern societies. Dealing with it appropriately poses legal, economic, political, social and cultural problems for society, which have been studied by the corresponding disciplines and are increasingly the subject of reflexive discourses of scientific communities. Unfortunately, problems of…

Skrentny, John D.; Lewis, Kevin – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
Studies of education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) commonly use a pipeline metaphor to conceptualize forward movement and persistence. However, the "STEM pipeline" carries implicit assumptions regarding length (i.e. that it "starts" and "stops" at specific stages in one's education…

Colleret, Maxime; Gingras, Yves – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
This study analyses the patenting activities of university science and engineering professors in Canada between 1920 and 1975. Unlike most studies on commercial activities in academia, which typically focus on the post-1980 period and on university practices, we focus on the pre-1980 period and on the individual decisions of professors to patent…

Cai, Yuzhuo; Lattu, Annina – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
While the Triple Helix and Quadruple Helix models are popular in innovation studies, the relations between them have not been addressed extensively in the literature. There are diverse interpretations of helix models in empirical studies that apply them, but these sometimes deviate from the original theses of the models. Such a situation can…

Tellmann, Silje Maria – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
This paper analyses the interrelations between academic disciplines and society beyond academia by the case of sociology in Norway. For that purpose, this paper introduces the concept of disciplines' societal territories, which refer to bounded societal spaces that are shaped by the knowledge of a discipline, premised on the linkages between the…

Zapp, Mike – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
Global science expansion and the 'skills premium' in labor markets have been extensively discussed in the literature on the global knowledge economy, yet the focus on, broadly-speaking, knowledge-related personnel as a key factor is surprisingly absent. This article draws on UIS and OECD data on research and development (R&D) personnel for the…

Edlund, Peter; Lammi, Inti – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
More than resource allocations, evaluations of funding applications have become central instances for status bestowal in academia. Much attention in past literature has been devoted to grasping the status consequences of prominent funding evaluations. But little attention has been paid to understanding how the status-bestowing momentum of such…

The paper examines the role of organizational commercial slack (OCS) in mediating the relationship between entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and the effectiveness of knowledge transfer (KT) in universities. The paper identifies two types of commercial slack in the university setting: financial and promotional. Four research hypotheses are proposed.…

Schofer, Evan; Lerch, Julia C.; Meyer, John W. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
Higher education has expanded at astonishing rates around the world. We seek to understand the oppositions that periodically arise, which may produce enrollment declines and/or imposition of political controls. The post-1945 growth of higher education was -- to a greater extent than is often recognized -- propelled by the liberal, and later…

Brint, Steven; Ilhan, Ali O. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
Recent scholars of the professions have argued that a new hybrid form of professionalism is becoming dominant. This new form combines traditional commitments to ethics and community service with new commitments to managerial and entrepreneurial objectives. We analyze the perceptions of 4,300 U.S. graduate students in 21 fields concerning how well…

Horta, Hugo – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2022
Most studies of academic inbreeding have focused on assessing its impact on scholarly practices, outputs, and outcomes. Few studies have concentrated on the other possible effects of academic inbreeding. This paper draws on a large number of studies on academic inbreeding to explore how the practice has been conceptualized, how it has emerged, and…
