Academic Productivity

Copyright (c) FreeFoto.comA la Lifehacker for aca­dem­ics, we’ve now got Academic Productivity. Academics, of course, put in more over­time than any oth­er pro­fes­sion in the UK (accord­ing to a recent poll), and this is prob­ably down to work con­tracts that pro­hib­it over­time but require it, for free. I see — from the snip­pet of an inter­view with the aca­dem­ic Dan Navarro — that con­tempt for admin­is­tra­tion is alive and well. Apparently, he got sev­en papers out into the open lit­er­at­ure (whatever that means) in January. He’ll be get­ting an early Christmas card from his Vice Chancellor.
