Wright, Claire; Ville, Simon – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2017
Interdisciplinary research is frequently viewed as an important component of the research landscape through its innovative ability to integrate knowledge from different areas. However, support for interdisciplinary research is often strategic rhetoric, with policy-makers and universities frequently adopting practices that favour disciplinary…

Tao, Yu; Hong, Wei; Ma, Ying – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2017
Gender differences in science and engineering (S&E) have been studied in various countries. Most of these studies find that women are underrepresented in the S&E workforce and publish less than their male peers. The factors that contribute to gender differences in experience and performance in S&E careers can vary from one country to…

Hammarfelt, Björn; de Rijcke, Sarah; Wouters, Paul – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2017
Global university rankings have become increasingly important "calculative devices" for assessing the "quality" of higher education and research. Their ability to make characteristics of universities "calculable" is here exemplified by the first proper university ranking ever, produced as early as 1910 by the American…

Brint, Steven; Carr, Cynthia E. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2017
Extending and expanding Geiger and Feller's (1995) analysis of increasing dispersion in R&D expenditures during the 1980s, the paper analyzes publication and citation counts as well as R&D expenditures for 194 top producers using Web of Science data. We find high and stable levels of inequality in the 1990s and 2000s, combined with robust…

Orthia, Lindy A. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
Since the mid-twentieth century, the 'Scientific Revolution' has arguably occupied centre stage in most Westerners', and many non-Westerners', conceptions of science history. Yet among history of science specialists that position has been profoundly contested. Most radically, historians Andrew Cunningham and Perry Williams in 1993 proposed to…

Thoenig, Jean-Claude; Paradeise, Catherine – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
Are universities able to operate as strategic actors? An organisational sociology based approach supported by a comparative field research project identifies three types of social, cultural and cognitive processes that play a decisive role in building and implementing local capabilities required to mobilise a strategic capacity. The paper…

For over 50 years, "Minerva" has been one of the leading independent journals in the study of "science, learning and policy". Its pages have much to say about the origins and conduct of the "intellectual Cold War", the defence of academic freedom, the emergence of modernization theory, and pioneering strategies in the…

Watermeyer, Richard; Olssen, Mark – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
A performance-based funding system like the United Kingdom's "Research Excellence Framework" (REF) symbolizes the re-rationalization of higher education according to neoliberal ideology and New Public Management technologies. The REF is also significant for disclosing the kinds of behaviour that characterize universities' response to…

Balakrishnan, Balamuralithara; Low, Foon Siang – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
As developed and developing countries move towards greater technological development in the 21st century, the need for engineers has increased substantially. Japan is facing the dilemma of insufficient engineers; therefore, the country has to rely on foreign workers. This problem may be resolved if there is a continuous effort to increase the…

Fochler, Maximilian; Felt, Ulrike; Müller, Ruth – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
There is a crisis of valuation practices in the current academic life sciences, triggered by unsustainable growth and "hyper-competition." Quantitative metrics in evaluating researchers are seen as replacing deeper considerations of the quality and novelty of work, as well as substantive care for the societal implications of research.…

Nguyen, Huong Thi Lan; Meek, Vincent Lynn – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
Structure and organization seems to be at the root of many of the questions raised about institutional behaviour; however, with respect to research on university capacity building, few studies have examined research organizational problems, particularly in developing countries. This study investigates academic reactions to the structure and…

Luukkonen, Terttu; Thomas, Duncan A. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
The paper introduces a concept of a "negotiated space" to describe university researchers' attempts to balance pragmatically, continually and dynamically over time, their own agency and autonomy in the selection of research topics and pursuit of scientific research to filter out the explicit steering and tacit signals of external…
