Sekcija Inclusion in scientific communities, pranešimas Lithuanian Researchers and Policymakers Regarding the Inclusion into Global Knowledge Production: the Publishing of Books
Lithuania was under Soviet control for almost fifty years. After the restoration of its independence in 1990, the small Baltic state put all its efforts to participate in the production of scientific knowledge along with developed countries. After joining the European Union in 2004, politicians set ambitious goals and developed various incentive systems; the results were not what they hoped to achieve.
A bibliometric analysis of books authored by Lithuanian researchers and submitted for annual performance-based research funding from 2004 to 2016 reveals outcomes contrary to policymakers’ expectations (that have been publicised widely) to have more national outputs published by prestigious North-Western publishers. Bibliometric analysis has posed quite a few questions that could be answered only by qualitative approaches, such as analysis of relevant policies and interviews.
The qualitative research aims to identify (1) changes in the book publishing behaviour of the authors from a tiny Post-Soviet country over the two last decades and (2) conditions that have shaped researchers’ decisions on publishing their books. One phase of this ongoing study embraced the qualitative analysis of Lithuanian policies-regulations designed to incentive publishing behaviours of researchers. Another phase entailed interviews with about 45 participants: researchers from the sciences, social sciences and humanities; policymakers and administrators.
The paper contributes to the STS scholarship on the inclusion of researchers from a little community into global knowledge production in book publishing with named academic publishers.
