”The Academic Profession in the Knowledge- Based Society” (APIKS) is a study examining change in the world of work in over 30 countries. The survey results will be compared with those obtained in a 2008 study entitled “Changing Academic Profession” which has yielded a comprehensive range of publications, e.g. books and peer-reviewed articles. The results offer the opportunity to examine the changing nature of work at universities and other higher education institutions both nationally and internationally. The study will be conducted in cooperation with universities and the steering group has representation from The Finnish Council of University Rectors UNIFI, The Rectors’ Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences Arene, Ministry of Education and Culture, Research Foundation for Studies and Education and The Finnish Union of and the Finnish Union of University Researchers and Teachers.
The survey is divided into six themes: career and professional status, general situation at work, teaching, research, societal interaction, and administration and management. In addition, the survey includes a section entitled “Academic Career Path” for doctoral students.
