What is it about?

The purpose of this study is to analyse how academic professors cope with the new culture of performance measurement and assessment in universities. In particular, the study aims to shed light on how external pressures related to measurement of research performance are translated into organisational and individual academic responses within the university, and the extent to which these responses are related specifically to the operational features of performance measurement systems (PMS).
