Since the mid-1980s, there has been a steady escalation in the quantity, reach and sophistication of research assessment.
Several triggers lie behind this: pressure from governments for tighter audit and evaluation of public investment in research; demand by policymakers for more strategic intelligence on impacts and future priorities; the need for universities and other institutions to mange and develop their research portfolios; competition within and between institutions for prestige, students, staff and resources; increases in the availability of real-time ‘big data’ on research uptake; and the capacity of indicators, metrics and other tools for data analysis.In the meantime, to ensure continued support, we are displaying the site without styles and Java Script.Authors who are interested in submitting a paper for any of the collections listed below should send a short abstract-length summary to the Editorial Office outlining the scope of their proposed paper; any general enquiries can also be directed to this address.On the other hand, however, the mentally ill have also historically faced much socioeconomic hardship; today, a high proportion of the homeless and incarcerated in many countries suffer from mental illness.By exploring this topic across time and place, this collection aims to provide a historical context for today’s mental health crisis, and also to inform current mental health policy, especially attempts to prevent or alleviate mental illness through social change.Insights from a broad spectrum of areas are welcomed, including, but not restricted to: international relations, political science, law, economics, sociology, history, sustainability, development, security, sports, public health, demography and cultural studies.Advisory Editors: Michele Acuto (University College London, UK), Nikolay Anguelov (University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, US) and Martin Geiger (Institute of Political Economy Carleton University, Canada).Insights on a broad spectrum of themes are welcomed, including, but not restricted to: This is a rolling article collection and as such proposals and submissions will be welcome throughout 2019. Editor: Professor Neil Robinson (Department of Politics and Public Administration, University of Limerick) The centenary of the Russian Revolution of 1917 has been a cause for reflection.Political, social and economic change in Russia have reshaped Russia over the last century, but at the same time, as the return to autocratic rule under Vladimir Putin shows, there are powerful continuities in Russia that need to be accounted for.From climate change to cyber-security, poverty to pandemics, food technologies to fracking, the questions being asked of scientists, engineers and other experts by policymakers, the media and the wider public continue to multiply and increase in complexity.At the same time, the authority and legitimacy of experts are under increasing scrutiny, particularly on controversial topics, such as climate change and genetically modified crops.
