The Academic Profession in the Knowledge-based Society (APIKS)
In the years of 2016 and 2017 Center for Institutional Studies of the National Research University Higher School of Economics for the second time will conduct an extensive study of higher educational institutions’ faculty - the Academic Profession in Knowledge-Based Society (APIKS). It is a large multinational project aimed at studying teaching and research staff of higher education institutions. Within this project knowledge and data about systems of higher education, and functions, productivity and attitudes of academicians will be collected. Main objective is to understand unique and common traits of academic profession in different countries.
This study continues the Changing Academic Profession (CAP) survey held in 19 countries in 2007-2008, and in Russia in 2012. APIKS project relies on a methodology and survey questions similar to the CAP study for cross-country and cross-time comparison. The emphasis, however, is changed to a more STEM-focused, and the questionnaire is broadened with a block of questions to young academics in order to address their career experiences, expectations and attitudes towards an academic life during the years of doctoral training and post-doctoral experience up to the first stable contract. Currently the APIKS project is at a stage of methodology development. This year Russian team guided by Maria Yudkevich takes active part in project organization and survey preparation. Updated information about the APIKS development and Russian participation will be posted regularly on this page.
