Abstrakti

This chapter argues for the importance of a comparative perspective on the academic profession, as higher education globally assumes an increasingly central role in the knowledge society and economy. We begin with an overview of the surge in empirical research on the academic profession over the past three decades and culminate with an introduction to the APIKS project: The Academic Profession in the Knowledge-based Society. The project, involving research teams from 22 countries across five continents, designed and executed surveys of the academic profession in 2019-20, including their role, working conditions, career trajectories and prospects, and the changing pressures and expectations for contributing to economic growth and social betterment through research, teaching, and external activities. Sampling, survey processes, including planning and design and datafile management are described. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the challenges of conducting a large-scale comparative survey and considers the project’s likely future directions.
