The Use of Research Assistants in Law Faculties: Balancing Cost Effectiveness and Reciprocity
Hutchinson, Terry C. & Moran, Joanne L. (2005) The Use of Research Assistants in Law Faculties: Balancing Cost Effectiveness and Reciprocity. In Faculty of Law Research Interest Group, September 2002, Brisbane. (Unpublished)
Research is currently considered to be central to Australia’s success in the global knowledge economy. To improve Australia’s position, the Commonwealth Government has developed a new research paradigm. This paradigm emphasises research outcomes and excellence in research training. The government’s aim is for young researchers to be nurtured in an environment that provides relevant experience, delivers high quality learning, and values creativity and talent. This paper argues that research assistants have been an undervalued part of many faculties research culture and that more careful employment and training of research assistants in Australian law faculties will not only improve research outcomes, but also provide a highly effective method of nurturing future academic researchers.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
