Moral rights and wrongs of research funding

Moral rights and wrongs of research funding Purpose – The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of being vigilant in the implications of all indicators of research output, quality and impact that are used in research assessment exercises. Design/methodology/approach – The paper examines links between Australia's competitive and contract research funding arrangements, moral rights clauses and some implications for particular disciplines and areas of research, including heterodox economics. Findings – Contract research arrangements have implications that are at least as significant as those associated with journal rankings and heterodox economists should pay careful attention to the provisions that attach to research funding. Originality/value – Despite its significance and implications, the recent introduction of moral rights clauses in Australian research contracts has received little systematic attention in academic journals and debate. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png On the Horizon Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of being vigilant in the implications of all indicators of research output, quality and impact that are used in research assessment exercises. Design/methodology/approach – The paper examines links between Australia's competitive and contract research funding arrangements, moral rights clauses and some implications for particular disciplines and areas of research, including heterodox economics. Findings – Contract research arrangements have implications that are at least as significant as those associated with journal rankings and heterodox economists should pay careful attention to the provisions that attach to research funding. Originality/value – Despite its significance and implications, the recent introduction of moral rights clauses in Australian research contracts has received little systematic attention in academic journals and debate.
