Håkansta, Carin; Jacob, Merle – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
This paper investigates the impact of changing science policy doctrines on the development of an academic field, working life research. Working life research is an interdisciplinary field of study in which researchers and stakeholders collaborated to produce relevant knowledge. The development of the field, we argue, was both facilitated and…

Pansters, Wil G.; van Rinsum, Henk J. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
On the basis of ethnographic and historical material this article makes a comparative analysis of the relationship between public events, ceremonies and academic rituals, institutional identity, and processes of transition and power at two universities, one in Mexico and the other in South Africa. The public events examined here play a major role…

Derrick, Gemma E.; Samuel, Gabrielle N. – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
Realising the societal gains from publicly funded health and medical research requires a model for a reflexive evaluation precedent for the societal impact of research. This research explores UK Research Excellence Framework evaluators' values and opinions and assessing societal impact, prior to the assessment taking place. Specifically, we…

Youtie, Jan; Bozeman, Barry – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
Publishing is central to the academic reward system. Contributorship issues loom large in this context. The need for fairness in authorship decisions is upheld in most collaborations, yet some collaborations are plagued by "nightmare" issues ranging from inappropriate authorship credit to author order issues to exploitation of students…

Prieur, Annick; Jensen, Sune Qvotrup; Laursen, Julie; Pedersen, Oline – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
The article traces the origin and development of the concept of social skills in first and foremost American academic discourse. As soon as the concept of social skills was coined, the concern for people lacking such skills started and has been on the increase ever since (now sharing public attention with related concepts such as self-control,…

Lewis, Jamie; Bartlett, Andrew; Atkinson, Paul – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
Bioinformatics--the so-called shotgun marriage between biology and computer science--is an interdiscipline. Despite interdisciplinarity being seen as a virtue, for having the capacity to solve complex problems and foster innovation, it has the potential to place projects and people in anomalous categories. For example, valorised…

Bianco, Mariela; Gras, Natalia; Sutz, Judith – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2016
Research agendas and academic evaluation are inevitably linked. By means of economic incentives, promotion, research funding, and reputation academic evaluation is a powerful influence on the production of knowledge; moreover, it is often conceived as a universal instrument without consideration of the context in which it is applied. Evaluation…

Baron, Christopher; Hamlin, Christopher – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
Between 1906 and 1909 the biologist Ronald Ross and the classicist W.H.S. Jones pioneered interdisciplinary research in biology and history in advancing the claim that malaria had been crucial in the decline of golden-age Greece (fourth century BCE). The idea had originated with Ross, winner of the Nobel Prize for demonstrating the importance of…

Olmos-Peñuela, Julia; Benneworth, Paul; Castro-Martínez, Elena – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
Ambiguity surrounding the effect of external engagement on academic research has raised questions about what motivates researchers to collaborate with third parties. We argue that what matters for society is research that can be absorbed by users. We define "openness" as a willingness by researchers to make research more usable by…

Weiss, Charles – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
Science and technology influence international affairs by many different mechanisms. Both create new issues, risks and uncertainties. Advances in science alert the international community to new issues and risks. New technological capabilities transform war, diplomacy, commerce, intelligence, and investment. This paper identifies six basic…

Halffman, Willem; Radder, Hans – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
Universities are occupied by management, a regime obsessed with "accountability" through measurement, increased competition, efficiency, "excellence", and misconceived economic salvation. Given the occupation's absurd side-effects, we ask ourselves how management has succeeded in taking over our precious universities. An…

Miettinen, Reijo; Tuunainen, Juha; Esko, Terhi – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
Because of the gross difficulties in measuring the societal impact of academic research, qualitative approaches have been developed in the last decade mostly based on forms of interaction between university and other societal stakeholders. In this paper, we suggest a framework for qualitative analysis based on the distinction between three…

Vanderstraeten, Raf – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
Talcott Parsons is often identified as the "master" of mid-twentieth-century social theory. In the 1960s and 1970s, however, his writings were hardly any longer discussed, but mostly neglected. "The American University" is Parsons's last monograph published during his lifetime. On the basis of extensive archival research, this…

Vuolanto, Pia – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
The boundary work approach has been established as one of the main ways to study controversies in science. However, it has been proposed that it does not meet the power dynamics of the scientific field sufficiently. This article concentrates on the intertwining of boundary work and power. It combines the boundary work approach developed by Thomas…

Wagner, Caroline S.; Bornmann, Lutz; Leydesdorff, Loet – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
China's remarkable gains in science over the past 25 years have been well documented but it is less well known that China and the United States have become each other's top collaborating country. Science and technology has been a primary vehicle for growing the bilateral relationship between China and the United States since the opening of…
