Synopsis: with The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

It cannot be overemphasized that the greatest value of this study is that it enables us to examine both the national and international aspects of the academic profession. The survey explores just how scholars see international links and what use they make of research from other countries. Looked at as a whole, these chapters reveal that, while the separate countries have sharply contrasting higher education histories and governance arrangements, a community of interest is emerging. The study indicates areas that academics around the world have in common.
?from The International Academic Profession

Based on the Carnegie Foundation's pioneering international survey of the academic profession The International Academic Profession provides an analysis of the professoriate in fourteen countries. It is a in-depth expansion of the study first examined in The Academic Profession, an International Perspective, which viewed the profession through the prism of several general themes. This new, comprehensive volume offers detailed information on topics and trAnds that have lasting implications in the academic profession through the perspectives of participating nations. It examines academic freedom, workload and time use, research and teaching requirements and more, providing an overview of the academic profession at the And of the twentieth century. The research and analysis presented in this unique study will strengthen and deepen understanding of the profession and stimulate further consideration of academic enterprise.
