Chapter 2: Where is academia going? Living within a POP culture

Morten Huse


I start this chapter with reflections about the present ‘publish or perish’ culture, and concerns about where our profession is going. I go on to discuss Boyer’s benchmark contribution about scholarship. Finally, I present a scholarly ecosystem consisting of institutions, audience, message, channels, journals and community. Institutions are formed by a neoliberal market ideology with external incentives. The audience is typically a narrow group in academia. The message is incremental; gap spotting and focus is usually short term and based on the past. The channels are premiere journals and they are tenure track driven and create publishing technicians. It is a community where the winner takes it all; it is based on relying on the self.
