Chapter 5: Initiatives for changing the ecosystem equilibrium

Morten Huse


Many initiatives have been taken to change the ecosystem equilibrium. They vary depending on the actors behind them. Rationales, objectives and means vary. Several scholars and other actors are crusading against the lack of meaning in the ‘publish or perish’ culture. Some go as far as to argue that a new science of management research is needed; that we need to rethink our professional norms, and cultivate a more scholarly identity. In this chapter, I present and sort various initiatives and suggestions for change – initiatives to make meaning of our research and scholarship. I sort some of these initiatives in line with how they have focused on different parts of the ecosystem: on addressing the institutions, the audience, the message, the channels and the community. The San Francisco Declaration (DORA) and Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM) get particular attention. I argue that coordination among the various initiatives is needed.
