    The Emergence of a Competitiveness Research and Development Policy Coalition and the Commercialization of Academic Science and Technology.Gary Rhoades & Sheila Slaughter - 1996 - Science, Technology and Human Values 21 (3):303-339.
    This article describes the emerging bipartisan political coalition supporting commercial competitiveness as a rationale for research and development, points to selected changes in legal and funding structures in the 1980s that stem from the success of the new political coalition and suggests some of the connections between these changes and academic science and technology, and examines the consequences of these changes for universities. The study uses longitudinal secondary data on changes in business strategies and corporate structures that made business elites (...)

  2. The “Traffic” in Graduate Students: Graduate Students as Tokens of Exchange Between Academe and Industry.Edward Morgan, Margaret Holleman, Teresa Campbell & Sheila Slaughter - 2002 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 27 (2):282-312.
    This study analyzes interview data from 37 science and engineering faculty involved in university-industry relations. Faculty are particularly concerned about how these relations affect their work with graduate students. Our analysis is guided by ritual exchange theory and network theory. First, we explore the ways faculty define and redefine what makes industrial or corporate research appropriate or inappropriate for training graduates. Second, we examine difficulties and tensions faculty face when they work with students on industrial or corporate projects. These difficulties (...)

  4. Beyond Basic Science: Research University Presidents' Narratives of Science Policy.Sheila Slaughter - 1993 - Science, Technology and Human Values 18 (3):278-302.
    Between 1980 and 1985 representatives of academic science changed their policy positions, moving from veneration of basic or fundamental research to promotion of entrepreneurial science. This change is examined through research university presidents' testimony before the U.S. Congress. The presidents' move from "fruits of research" narratives that emphasize the benefits of basic science to narratives that celebrate technology based on fundamental research in "orders of magnitude more production from the efforts of orders of magnitude less workers. " This change reflects (...)

    From “Endless Frontier” to “Basic Science for Use”: Social Contracts Between Science and Society.Gary Rhoades & Sheila Slaughter - 2005 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 30 (4):536-572.
    This article analyzes the National Science Study produced by the Republican-dominated U.S. Congress in the mid-1990s to see if the priorities of S&T policy were changing, if state agencies were being reorganized to achieve new priorities, and if universities were expected to work closely with industry in reconfigured agencies. Also analyzed was the economic composition of board members of eight S&T policy organizations that informed the National Science Study. It was found that, generally, Republican policy supported both basic science and (...)

  6. Universities in the Information Age: Changing Work, Organization, and Values in Academic Science and Engineering.Sheila Slaughter, Gary Rhoades & Jennifer L. Croissant - 2001 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 21 (2):108-118.
    This article discusses a new program for collaborative study of information technology, commercialization intellectual property and transformations of education research practives in universities. Three themes define the program. First, the authors investigate the ways that information technologies shape content, organization, and delivery of faculty work. Second, they examine the interplay of issues of intellectually property, technology, commercialization, and academic research. Third, ethical issues information raise and the values they embody are explored. The research and training undertaken brings together problems usually (...)

    The Social Construction of Copyright Ethics and Values.Sheila Slaughter & Gary Rhoades - 2010 - Science and Engineering Ethics 16 (2):263-293.
    This study is based on analysis of copyright policies and 26 interviews with science and engineering faculty at three research universities on the topic of copyright beliefs, values, and practices, with emphasis on copyright of instructional materials, courseware, tools, and texts. Given that research universities now emphasize increasing external revenue flows through marketing of intellectual property, we expected copyright to follow the path of patents and lead to institutional emphasis of policies and practices that enhanced universities’ intellectual property portfolios, accompanied (...)

    Commentary on “Six Domains of Research Ethics”.Sheila Slaughter - 2002 - Science and Engineering Ethics 8 (2):219-222.
    This commentary on K.D. Pimple’s “Six Domains of Research Ethics”, focuses on the area of institutional integrity and looks at “relationships between researchers, their sponsoring institutions, funding agencies, and the government,” considering the implications of institutional demands and support for research, and, in turn, demands and support on research priorities and public education.
