Research output: Book/ReportAnthology or Edited Book

Abstract

Research Impact and the Early Career Researcher documents experiences and perspectives on the emerging concept of research impact from a range of disciplines and places them within an analytical and critical discursive framework. Combining personal reflections with research essays, it provides the reader with a multi-dimensional perspective on research impact and how it connects to the research lives and practice of early career researchers.
Research impact is playing an ever-increasing role in international research policy and government strategy, this book:
• Explores the arrival of impact into the national research consciousness
• Discusses how to build capacity and skills within research impact and how this might impact academic career progression in an international job market
• Offers advice on balancing national expectations with institutional expectations on research in terms of funding and career progression
• Offers suggested ways forward whilst actively challenging what constitutes research impact

Research Impact and the Early Career Researcher provides a much-needed research base for studies of research impact and the extent to which it has altered, changed, and influenced the research practice of early career academics. It is an essential guide for any new and early career researchers wishing to navigate the complex landscape in order to meaningfully contribute to the impact agenda.
