Don Webber expertly compiles responses from different research environments and practices across a range of universities, succinctly summarising those that achieve better quality research output.

Research leaders who wish to have a high performing department will find this book insightful in gaining ideas on how to enable their colleagues to achieve their full potential.
Critical Acclaim
‘Academia, while immensely rewarding, can be a pretty tough gig, particularly for junior researchers. In this book, Professor Webber, based on years of experience across countries and institutions, provides a very accessible set of tips to make the academic journey less daunting and more enjoyable. A delightfully free-flowing read, with many nuggets of quality information, for new and established academics as well as research leaders – a book that could easily become a staple on an academic’s bookshelf.’
