What do Academic Metrics do to Political Scientists? Theorizing their Roots, Locating their Effects
Reason for embargo
This paper situates academic metrics (journal, institutions, and individual scholars' ranking ratings) within the broader logic of neoliberal government, in order to better identify and understand the impact of these metrics on political scientists' perceptions, behaviours and identities. the results of a pilot survey conducted among political scientists in the UK and Belgium are used in order to further expose this impact.
