Hicks, Diana; Holbrook, J. Britt – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
Should philosophy help address the problems of non-philosophers or should it be something isolated both from other disciplines and from the lay public? This question became more than academic for philosophers working in UK universities with the introduction of societal impact assessment in the national research evaluation exercise, the REF. Every…

Langfeldt, Liv; Nedeva, Maria; Sörlin, Sverker; Thomas, Duncan A. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
Notions of research quality are contextual in many respects: they vary between fields of research, between review contexts and between policy contexts. Yet, the role of these co-existing notions in research, and in research policy, is poorly understood. In this paper we offer a novel framework to study and understand research quality across three…

Mäkinen, Elina I.; Evans, Eliza D.; McFarland, Daniel A. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
Due to investments in interdisciplinary research endeavors, the number and variety of interdisciplinary research centers have grown exponentially during the past decades. While interdisciplinary research centers rely on varied organizational arrangements, we know little about the conditions and processes that mediate collaborative arrangements and…

Bauder, Harald – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
The relationship between the international mobility of academic researchers and social capital is complex. On the one hand, the literature suggests that social capital facilitates the international mobility of academics which, in turn, promotes the accumulation of international social capital, enhances research productivity, and advances careers.…

The aim of this study is to investigate how patterns of collaboration and scholarly independence are related to early stage researchers' development in two multidisciplinary learning environments at a Swedish university. Based on interviews with leaders, supervisors, doctoral students, and post docs, results show how early stage researchers'…

Korom, Philipp – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
This article compares the career trajectories and mobility patterns of Nobel Laureates in economics with those of highly cited sociologists to evaluate a theory advanced by Richard Whitley that postulates a nexus between the overall intellectual structure of a discipline and the composition of its elite. The theory predicts that the most eminent…

Dusdal, Jennifer; Powell, Justin J. W.; Baker, David P.; Fu, Yuan Chih; Shamekhi, Yahya; Stock, Manfred – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
The world's third largest producer of scientific research, Germany, is the origin of the research university and the independent, extra-university research institute. Its dual-pillar research policy differentiates these organizational forms functionally: universities specialize in advanced research-based teaching; institutes specialize intensely…

Hellström, Tomas; Hellström, Christina – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
Project funding rarely demands much change on behalf of the recipient. In contrast, cross-sectoral mobility funding requires recipients to change their environment and often some aspects of their research. There is a need to understand the impact on the researchers' experiences as knowledge producers within such programs, as part of the broader…

Berthoin Antal, Ariane; Rogge, Jan-Christoph – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
Given the significant transformations underway in academia, it is pertinent to ask whether the traditional notion of entering the profession in response to a calling is still relevant. This article draws together hitherto unconnected strands of German and Anglo-Saxon literature on callings, then analyzes biographical narratives of 40 social…

Bégin-Caouette, Olivier – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
In the global academic capitalist race, academics, institutions and countries' symbolic power results from the accumulation of scientific capital. This paper relies on the perspectives of system actors located at the institutional, national and international levels to assess the perceived importance of eight systemic factors in contributing to the…

Osley-Thomas, Robert – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
Did the liberal art disciplines at American universities have the highest failure rate between the 1970s and the early 2000s? Important theoretical traditions indeed believe that the liberal arts are the most threatened disciplines in the academy, while other theories have differing views. This paper reexamines the vulnerability of academic…

Horbach, Serge P. J. M.; Halffman, Willem – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2020
Peer review of journal submissions has become one of the most important pillars of quality management in academic publishing. Because of growing concerns with the quality and effectiveness of the system, a host of enthusiastic innovators has proposed and experimented with new procedures and technologies. However, little is known about whether…

Samuel, Gabrielle; Derrick, Gemma E.; van Leeuwen, Thed – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2019
This paper examines the consequences of a culture of "personal ethics" when using new methodologies, such as the use of social media (SM) sites as a source of data for research. Using SM research as an example, this paper explores the practices of a number of actors and researchers within the "Ethics Ecosystem" which as a…

Pielke, Roger; Linnér, Björn-Ola – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2019
This paper critiques the so-called "Green Revolution" as a political myth of averted famine. A "political myth," among other functions, reflects a narrative structure that characterizes understandings of causality between policy action and outcome. As such, the details of a particular political myth elevate certain policy…

Billi, Marco; Blanco, Gustavo; Urquiza, Anahí – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2019
Over the last few decades climate change has been gaining importance in international scientific and political debates. However, the social sciences, especially in Latin America, have only lately become interested in the subject and their approach is still vague. Scientific understanding of global environmental change and the process of designing…
