This is what edited volumes were made for. Critical analysis of the impact agenda from a unique perspective by @KFenbyHulse, with a level of personal reflection and practical advice you will not find anywhere else in the literature. My review of "Research Impact and the #ECR" 👇
Exercise your academic freedom by choosing the sorts of impacts you want to generate from your research, and how you want to pursue them
Impact builds on impact: start small and celebrate every success no matter how tiny
How has your research shaped you as a person? How has this impacted your world? Find your identity as a researcher and fight to protect the environment that fosters it
Where do you even start if you are a "pure" non-applied researcher who wants to achieve impact? Chapter 1 has some very practical suggestions...
Some useful examples of the sorts of impacts you might be able to evidence from practice-led arts research...
Do you identify with one of these insecure types of researcher? Imposters feel like frauds, aspirants are perfectionists who will do anything to avoid rejection and existentialists constantly look for external validation
More evidence that the research impact agenda is changing the questions some researchers ask, with the potential to compromise research quality
Feeling overwhelmed by demands for impact from your research? Think laterally, involve others in co-producing your impact and find an impact mentor
"The danger here is that research impact becomes understood as a product, as something that is to be protected and owned by an individual, rather than as something shared through collaborative endeavour"
My only critique is that some international readers may find this book a little UK-centric, but apart from that...
This book is full of practical help and inspiration for any #ECR interested in making their research really count. Get your copy (20% off and free shipping) at routledge.com/Research-Impac…
