Dordrecht: Springer 2013 (Reihe: The Changing Academy – The Changing Academic Profession in International Comparative Perspective, Bd. 9)

Dieser Band beschreibt, wie unterschiedlich Lehre und Forschung an Hochschulen in 18 Ländern sowie in der Region Hong Kong gewichtet und eingeschätzt werden. Die Analysen beruhen auf den Daten einer international vergleichenden Studie mit dem Titel „The Changing Academic Profession (CAP)“. Einen besonderes Augenmerk richten die Autoren auf die Fragen, wie Forschung und Lehre in den unterschiedlichen Ländern jeweils definiert werden, welcher Stellenwert ihnen in jedem Hochschulsystem zugewiesen wird, ob Lehre oder Forschung besonders bevorzugt und wie sie von den Hochschullehrerinnen und Hochschullehrern durchgeführt werden und welche Anreize die Hochschulen dafür bieten.
