Palgrave Communications Special Issue

I am so delighted to see my first single-authored, double-blind peer-reviewed article appear in the world! It is a special issue in Palgrave Communications on “The Future of Research Assessment” being commissioned by Professor James Wilsdon (Professor of Research Policy, Department of Politics and Director of Impact and Engagement, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Sheffield, UK).

I am very happy because the journal is Open Access and speaks to scholars working both in the Social Sciences and in the Humanities (shout out the editorial team for being so helpful throughout the process).

The article addresses the future of research assessment within higher education in the UK from a humanities perspective. Specifically, my paper responds to the increasing prioritisation of ‘impact’ measurement in research assessment criteria. The article situates recent changes in higher education within a historical context of cultural policymaking in the UK from the 1980s to the present day.
