Abstract [en]

This study deals with changing communication patterns in relation to changes in governance of higher education. Vital for research organization and development is research publication and communication. How is educational research in Sweden dealing with these issues and what are the implications of that for the positioning of research at education departments? The present study aimed to analyze publication patterns in Swedish educational research by capturing the total publication output of a sample of Swedish researchers in education. The researchers in the study were identified as researchers- from different disciplines and faculties - through their applications for funding for educational studies at the two largest bodies for funding of research in Sweden. Of these were 42 percent from educational research in a more precise meaning, i.e. from education departments or from teacher education. Thus, we can compare publication patterns in educational research (e.g. in pedagogic, didaktik, pedagogisktarbete etc.) comparared to research in other disciplines (political science, sociology, history) doing research in education as a field of study. A total of more than four thousand publications were categorized into ten publication types or formats (e.g. books, research articles, newspaper articles) and the articles were analyzed in terms of the prestige level of the journals. The results are showing that educational research is using a number of publication genres, having a rather unfocused journal publication pattern (though with Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research and Pedagogisk Forskning i Sverige as most frequently selected journals), using more of Swedish as a publication language, and rather seldom using ISI web of science journals in their publications. This publication pattern is discussed in relation current changes in research policy and in relation to different strategies in research communication in order to change the social and intellectual organization of Swedish educational research in an Nordic and international context.
