Overview

"Important and essential reading for those interested in the transformation of science in the region." Research Policy

The shift to a market economy in post-communist Eastern Europe has had a profound impact on science and scientists across the region, leading to
reforms in research management practices and to drastic cuts in funding levels everywhere. Many countries are moving towards a system of competitive research grants awarded on the basis of peer review. The introduction of peer review is not simply a technical matter; it signifies a fundamental change in the social structure of science, enhancing professional autonomy and giving working scientists a voice in the allocation of resources. This book combines first-hand accounts of the reform process with analyses of the strengths and weaknesses of both peer review and quantitative indicators.
