File Description

Research has been at the centre of the pandemic, playing an essential part in guiding the approach to managing both the human and medical impact of the virus. The impact of the virus on the research enterprise itself, however, is something which has been less closely examined.

To help inform universities’ medium and long term planning, Springer Nature has commissioned experts to provide critical thinking on the impact COVID-19 is having on the exact sector we are relying on to get us out of the crisis. The U.S. Academic Research Enterprise (US-ARE): Possible Paths from the Pandemic by Jason Owen-Smith is one of those commissioned pieces.

The resulting research, available at the Springer Nature website, shows the wider impact COVID is having on the research enterprise in the US, and could continue to have for a long time to come. It provides thoughts and recommendations on actions universities, governments and funders should consider to avoid unforeseen consequences and ensure the sustainability of research.
