About this item

This book arises out of the University of Cape Town’s Emerging Researcher Programme. It identifies and promotes awareness of contemporary challenges in the local and global higher education context; explains the intrinsic nature of academia worldwide; and provides strategies for individual growth that result in sustained, high-quality research output. It also addresses institutional leadership whose responsibility is to create an environment conducive to the flourishing of research and researchers. Unlike texts from the Global North, this book seeks to reflect a southern-hemisphere perspective, relevant to academics within and beyond the borders of South Africa. At the same time it recognizes that the experience of being an academic differs between countries, institutions and even within a single institution. It focuses on the nature of the academic environment, on research as a core academic function, and on the fast-changing local research context; introduces readers to the range of opportunities, tools and targets for personal research growth; discusses the dissemination and impact of research, mainly but not exclusively through publishing, and on the various strategies for and measures of research impact; and looks at the production of Master’s and PhD theses from the student and supervisor’s perspective.
