Ties That Do Not Bind: Musings on the Specious Relevance of Academic Research.
Bolton, Michael J.; Stolcis, Gregory B.
Public Administration Review, v63 n5 p626-30 Sep-Oct 2003
Discusses the gap between academic research and practice in public administration and argues that it can be traced to conflicts such as theoretical vs. pragmatic knowledge, data-supported vs. logic-driven information, scientific method vs. case studies, academic vs. practitioner journals, and tenure vs. organizational effectiveness. Explores research in other disciplines and offers solutions to narrow the gap. Contains 10 references. (JOW)
