Publish or perishing Australia's universities

My last post on ERA, or Excellence in Research for Australia, CQU staff accept teaching scholar positions, mentioned that I was recording the piece because I want to do some more analysis of ERA. Having just finished my weekly Armidale Express column, I want to pose a simple question for discussion.

Is it actually sensible to extend the concept of publish or perish to Australia's universities?

Completely off topic, but Jim's blog is nominated in the People's Choice section of the Best Australian Blogs competition.

He probably won't mention it, so I thought I should. You can get to the voting page from the following link:


Takes about 2 minutes, which I think is a small price to pay for the effort Jim puts into his work.

So come on all you readers - GET VOTING!
