  4. 12/22/2018 Does Humanities Lack Research Funding? - EnagoAcademy ❅ ❅ ❅ ❅ Does Humanities Lack ResearchFunding? Last updated Dec 19,2018 ❅ ❅ Research funding is an important aspect of academic life. Graduate students, researchers, and professors are always in need of funding for their studies. Recently, therehas ❅ been a significant development in the distribution of funding.And it is not a good sign for the researchers working in the field of humanities. ❅ ❅ ❅ Unfortunately, humanities is facing some serious challenges. Enrollment is down. There is a decrease in the number of humanities courses that the universities offer. As a result, allocation of research funding for researchers in humanities is less. This means that researchers have less number of opportunities to pursue research projectsand publish their work. Let us check few statistics to know the scenario better. A Shift Towards theSciences At the University of Pennsylvania, the number of humanities majors has dropped significantlyover the past decade. This is an example of the shift from the humanities to, for example, majors in the sciences. Bill Gates once said that there is “a severe shortfall of scientists and engineers with expertise to develop the next generation of breakthroughs.” Universities are also prioritizing science as technological advancements continue to develop at a rapid pace. Universities want to be the laboratoriesfor scientific and technological breakthroughs. As a result, there is less focus on the subjecthumanities. ❅ ❅ Changes ❅in FundingCriteria Distribution of research funding is crucial. Sometimes the application process can be complicated. Also, requirements are continually being❅tailored to fit subjects inthe  sciences. For example, we can look at the Research Excellence Framework (REF) in the UK. The goal of the REF is to study trends in research funding and to ensureeven distrubution of funding across the full academicspectrum. ❅ https://www.enago.com/academy/does-humanities-lack-research-funding/

  5. 12/22/2018 Does Humanities Lack Research Funding? - EnagoAcademy Obviously, this is an admirable goal. However, for all of its work to improve research funding, the Research Excellence Framework has some shortcomings. John Marenbon, a senior research fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, highlights one.According to him, the criteria are not designed for humanities subjects, but rather for scientific discoveries or technolo❅gical advances. In fact, it exclud❅es important work❅in art andphilosophy. ❅ ❅ Some people see the REF as harmful to those studying the humanities. The imbalance of funding and the changes its distribution discourages many in the humanitiesfrom pursuing important studies. So, the public is missing out on the research taking place in humanities. In fact, some of the best academics in the humanities are reluctantto share their knowledge andideas. ❅ Significant Changes inPublishing There are already plans to change the imbalance of funding opportunities. One significant trend is the move toward open-access-journal publishing (OA). A good example is OpenAccessPublishinginEuropeanNetworks (OAPEN).TheOAPENaimsto createasustainableopenaccessmodelfor publishingacademicbooksinthehumanities and social sciences. The goal is to promote high-quality academic work that would often go ignored or unpublished in the traditional publishingmarket. The main issue that gets lost in the funding debateis the importance of research. Students and professors in all fields should have the opportunity to perform theirresearch freely and to distribute it as well. Open access is a great benefit to researchers in the humanities who find it difficult to find researchfunding. What are your experiences with research funding?
