Chapter 14: Living under the restrictions of a publish or perish culture
Nowadays publishing research results is a crucial element of becoming a distinguished researcher. Especially early career entrepreneurship researchers without tenured positions aim to do research which has a greater possibility of being published in highly ranked journals. Chapter 14 focuses not only on the importance of getting published in journals, but also takes a closer look at the current PhD education system for entrepreneurship researchers. The authors conducted interviews with young researchers from Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Although it is important to teach early career researchers how to get published in highly ranked journals, there are potentially negative long-term consequences. If early career researchers are taught that getting published is the only important career component, they might remain in an academic ivory tower without answering questions which are relevant for other target groups.
