Scholarly Knowledge Production

Scholarly Knowledge Production

I’m happy to announce that we are finally back in business! On Tuesday the 6th of October we will have our first 08:23 after the summer break. As a basis for the seminar, we will read a “work in progress” manuscript by Charmine E. J. Härtel, Anne Huff and Rolf A. Lundin. Professor Härtel is an internationally renowned organizational psychologist and management scholar currently active at UQ Business School (Australia); Professor Huff is among others a former President of the Academy of Management and honorary doctorate at Jönköping University, now active at Maynooth university (Ireland); and Rolf (as you hopefully know) is the founding Dean of USBE and now a Courtesy Professor-in-Residence here.

As you also might recognize, we have previously had a couple of book chapters (from “Writing for Scholarly Publication”) written by Professor Huff at the 08:23, and it is therefore even more exciting to be able to discuss this manuscript. The topic, and likewise the title of the manuscript, is “Scholarly Knowledge Production”. In short, the authors describe some contemporary changes in the academic environment followed by the question of “whether our current models for academic knowledge creation can sustain us in light of the new landscape”? Based on a constructive criticism they thereafter suggest that an open innovation approach to academic knowledge creation might help us meet the future demands and expectations of academia.

Please note that the manuscript is still in its very early stage and NOT FOR CIRCULATION. That said; please bring your most critical comments and constructive suggestions to the seminar. If we are really lucky, Rolf might start off with a short (5 min) presentation.
