Repertoires of publishing: A talk with PhD students
2014 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
In the last decades, public universities and research institutions are faced with more scrutiny than before, with the self-regulation and governance of the researchers gaining more prevalence. Coupled with the accountability arguments and the use of rankings as quality measures, the university environment exerts different pressures upon scholars. This study explores how the PhD students cope with such pressures, by analysing how they justify their publishing choices. Their accounts are analysed by employing a strain of discourse analysis, namely interpretative repertoires, and analyse how through the use of these repertoires, the institutional pressures are managed and the discourses are opposed and reproduced.
