An academic who works in the fields of academic research tools has a simple question for you: what’s important to you?
“It’s a matter of priorities,” says Mary Ann Smeets, director of research and research innovation at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
“The way we think about research is a very, very, big question.
How do you want to spend your time?
How do I want to get out of bed?”
The answers are often complicated and often opaque, but there are some simple guidelines: It’s important for researchers to be part of a large research group; to have an audience; and to be accountable for their work.
But these are just basic guidelines.
The big question is what’s the best way to do it?
The answers to this question are, in part, a matter for individual researchers.
The National Academs has produced a research agenda, called the Research Strategy for the 21st Century.
It aims to bring together experts in the disciplines of academic science, academic industrial research (as a broad term encompassing many different fields), and academic research analytics (as it’s known in research circles).
The agenda was developed by the National Academy of Sciences Working Group on Academics and the Arts and is intended to guide future research.
In the end, it’s not an exhaustive list of recommendations, but it does have some recommendations for how to get started.
The agenda also outlines some of the tools researchers will need to use in their research.
There’s a new toolkit of tools for academic researchers, including: A list of all the research tools the National Science Foundation (NSF) is supporting for the 2020 academic year, and for the next two years;
