Source: University of Manchester
The governance and organization of scientific research undertaken for publication have altered significantly since the end of the Second World War in many industrialized economies. These changes have had significant effects on authority relations governing research goals, approaches and the evaluation of results. Such shifts in authority have altered the extent and form of intellectual competition, innovation and coordination in the public sciences. However, the nature and consequences of these governance changes have varied considerably between differently organized public science systems.
