This groundbreaking book arrives at a time of growing concern for the future of true scholarship. Morten Huse calls upon the scholarly community to reflect on the recent dramatic changes to academia, calling for coordinated efforts to reorganise the scholarly ecosystem.
 
Offering a holistic view of academia, Huse outlines the institutions, audiences, messages, channels and communities that interact in this ecosystem, introducing a ‘sharing philosophy’ as the foundation of change. Reflecting on the past and looking to the future, this exciting book demands a communal approach to scholarship that comprises an open, innovative and impact-driven attitude to research that can change the academic game.
 
Incisive and optimistic for the future, this book is crucial reading for PhD students and junior faculty members hoping to find new avenues for impactful and innovative research. Established scholars, as well as leaders of academic institutions, academies and associations concerned with recent structural changes to scholarship will also benefit from Huse’s strong critique and alternative pathways.
‘A very personal and engaging book, from an engaged scholar who speaks and writes from the bottom of his heart. A beautiful metaphor starring boats, lighthouses, tugboats and good wine. This is about academic communities, institutions, individuals, stakeholders, rules of the game, and even more so about sharing, openness, training, mentoring, contributing, having an impact, doing good. A very special and valuable contribution to rethink and redesign the ecosystems and practices of conducting research. A well-documented, well-articulated piece. A wealth of experiences so warmly put together.’
– Thomas Durand, Conservatoire national des arts et métiers, France and President, European Academy of Management

‘What a wonderful, timely and profound book. And what a thoughtful and eye-opening perspective on contemporary movements in scholarly research internationally it provides. And what inspiration the book gives for how research can provide much wider and truer scholarship than it does now. This book provides a wonderful capstone on Morten Huse’s career, one that truly embodies the sharing philosophy he introduces, explains, and invites scholars to join.’
– Jean M. Bartunek, Boston College, US

‘Professor Huse has written an extremely timely book addressing one of the most challenging and thorny questions in management and related fields: How can we produce research that is important and credible? I look forward to sharing this book with doctoral students and colleagues around the world.’
– Herman Aguinis, The George Washington University School of Business, US
