Times Higher Education’s first issue of the new year is chock-full of interesting news on research impact:
- How the Browne review, which is likely to have a major impact on British higher education, spent only £68,000 on research, most of which was spent on opinion surveys of students and parents.
- A visit to Warwick Manufacturing Group reveals how universities and industry can work together.
- A new online magazine The Public Intellectual will be launched in March to ‘bridge the gap between journals and journalism.’
- At the University of Leiciester, a new Centre for Adapting to Changing Environments seeks to translate science research into real policy.
- A defense of journal rankings which claims that while not perfect, ratings help define, rather than distort research excellence.
