About the Author

Professor Jenny M Lewis is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the University of Melbourne, Australia. She has published extensively in governance and policy journals, and her previous books include: Health policy and politics: Networks, ideas and power (2005), and Connecting and cooperating: Social capital and public policy (2010). She is the recipient of the 2012 Kooiman prize for best article in Public Management Review, with her colleague, Mark Considine.


"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
