The University in the spotlight. Call for papers
Wednesday, 12 February 2020 00:00

 

The quality and transparency of the mechanisms for the selection and promotion of scholars within universities is a subject of fundamental importance and social repercussion.

Culture and Education calls the university community to debate this and other related topics in a special issue.

 

Background

 

As the driving force of a knowledge society, the University’s mission is to create, spread, and transfer scientific knowledge. Thus, universities integrate teaching, research, and innovation activities, as well as knowledge transfer activities that generate social value. The human factor, the teaching and research staff, is a cornerstone for the effective fulfillment of this mission.

Spanish universities have developed specific mechanisms for hiring and promoting university staff: public, competitive examinations for new positions, accountability systems to evaluate and certify scholars’ research activity and teaching accomplishments, official recognition and support of consolidated research groups.

All these mechanisms are fundamentally based on the assessment of candidates by peers in higher ranks who evaluate the candidates’ suitability to carry out such activities. These mechanisms are essential for accessing teaching positions, certifying candidates’ aptitude to advance in their academic career and, directly or indirectly, impact on their chances of obtaining funding for research, innovation, and development projects.

Towards the middle of 2019, the Spanish media informed about several cases that called into question the quality and transparency of the mechanisms for the selection and promotion of scholars within universities. The media pointed at cases of favoritism in the form of nepotism or cronyism (Aydogan, 2012), showing a remarkable interference of reasons foreign to the skills and merits of the candidates in the peer-evaluation processes. Simultaneously, cases of plagiarism in publications and doctoral theses were uncovered.

This accumulation of facts and circumstances is undermining the trust of society on Academia.
