"When looking at changes in knowledge production, so many researchers focus only on one main driver - the personal motivations of individual academics; the practices and traditions of different disciplines; or, government policies. All three forces shape the decisions of academics, and Jenny Lewis is to be applauded for undertaking a major study that seeks to understand the interplay between them. It is important to understand, and demonstrate, that different systems applied in different countries can have exactly the same effect on researchers. Understanding why this occurs - by looking at all important shaping forces and their interactions - is essential." - Linda Butler, Australian National University
