Osterloh, Margit; Frey, Bruno S (2009). Research Governance in Academia: are there Alternatives to Academic Rankings? Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 423, University of Zurich.
Peer reviews and rankings today are the backbone of research governance, but recently came under scrutiny. They take explicitly or implicitly agency theory as a theoretical basis. The emerging psychological economics opens a new perspective. As scholarly research is a mainly curiosity driven endeavor, we include intrinsic motivation andnsupportive feedback by the peers as important determinants of scholarly behavior. We discuss whether a stronger emphasis on selection and socialization offers an alternative to the present regime of academic rankings.
