Eight reflections on quality in reseach
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Talking about quality
What is quality in research? What is good research? How can we now how to practice it and how to assess it? These questions are almost impossible to answer, and they are precisely for this reason all the more important to talk about. This is, perhaps, all the more pressing in an interdisciplinary research context such as ours since we from this position are exposed to, and in contact with, many different conceptions of what counts as good quality in research.
I asked the participants in the group of professors to each write a short reflection essay on the topic of quality in research. The aim with these contributions is to spark further conversations. This group at tema T was singled out not because they know the answers, they were asked to reflect on this because they represent a long experience of not knowing the answers.
It is my hope and belief that these contributions here can help us elaborate our conversation about these ever-topical issues.
