Summary A number of trends and issues have conspired to bring questions of knowledge production, research policy, and research management to the fore on the higher education policy agendas of many countries. With the nations of the Asia and the Pacific building knowledge-based economies and expanding and adapting their higher education systems, this book focuses on the different national perspectives of knowledge production and research in higher education in this region. The book brings together leading experts on research and higher education policy who compare, contrast, and critically analyze how policy in Asia-Pacific countries is furthering a supportive (or non-supportive) environment for the promotion of research within higher education
