Contemporary Discourses of Green Political Economy: A Q Method Analysis

Hayley Stevenson
For over two decades, the concept of sustainable development has been salient in political discourse. But its promise of reconciling economic development, social welfare, and environmental sustainability has proven rather elusive. In recent years, we've seen numerous competing concepts emerge in debates about sustainable economic development. While many advance ideas of a green economy and green growth, others talk about wellbeing, gross national happiness, inclusive wealth, harmony with nature, de-growth, steady-state economy, and buenvivir (living...

Digital Research Report: Altmetric mentions and the communication of medical research

Digital Science, Jonathan Adams & Tamar Loach
Disseminating research outcomes outside academia. Funded by Nesta, the report looks at whether data emerging from media ‘mentions’ of research provide timely indicators of outcomes linked to social and technical innovation for stakeholders in networks beyond academia.

Workshop Report - Shaking It Up: How To Thrive In - And Change - The Research Ecosystem

Digital Science

Digital Research Report: Evidence for excellence: has the signal overtaken the substance? An analysis of journal articles submitted to RAE2008

Digital Science
A massive volume and diversity of data is associated with research. Most people are familiar with analyses of publications and citations (bibliometrics), especially around research performance benchmarking. They are aware that such analyses have both limitations and flaws and are often misused. But performance is only one part of the publication story and bibliometrics are only one part of the data portfolio. This report looks at what publication analysis can tell us about other aspects...

Digital Research Report: The Diversity of UK Research and Knowledge - Analyses from the REF impact case studies

Digital Science, Tamar Loach, Jonathan Adams & Martin Szomszor
The UK’s most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), for the first time evidenced the economic and societal impact of university research through a total of 6,975 case studies. This Digital Research Report on ‘The Diversity of UK Research and Knowledge’ introduces this dataset and contains visualisations of the knowledge networks underpinning the impact of UK university research. Alongside it lies an interactive visualisation, see www.digital-science.com/visualizations/ref-case-study-similarity-network.

Digital Research Report: The value of structural diversity - Assessing diversity for a sustainable research base.

Digital Science
Digital Science’s consultancy team, working with the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at Sussex University, analysed structural diversity and argue for its value to a sustainable research base
Structural diversity in the academic environment refers to having multiplicity and disparity of subject areas, institutions and support mechanisms in research. Digital Science’s latest Digital Research Report, “The Value Of Structural Diversity”, expands and explains the conceptualisation of structural diversity and also talks about how diversity contributes to...
