BACKGROUND Recent research on academic-industrial research relationships in the life sciences has examined their frequency, benefits, risks, and evolution from the standpoint of industrial sponsors of research. We collected information on the extent and effects of academic-industrial research relationships from the standpoint of faculty members who participate in them. METHODS We used a mailed questionnaire to collect data between October 1994 and April 1995 from 2052 faculty members (of 3169… 

Looking a gift horse in the mouth: corporate gifts supporting life sciences research.

Research-related gifts are a common and important form of research support for academic life scientists, however, recipients frequently think that donors place restrictions and expect returns that may be problematic for recipients as well as institutions.

Withholding research results in academic life science. Evidence from a national survey of faculty.

Withholding of research results is not a widespread phenomenon among life-science researchers, however, withholding is more common among the most productive and entrepreneurial faculty.

Australian University-Industry Research Links: Researcher Involvement, Outputs, Personal Benefits and 'Withholding' Behaviour

Using data from two surveys of science and technology academics in major Australian research universities, an assessment is made of researcher involvement in industry-research partnerships, the

Assessing faculty financial relationships with industry: A case study.

The extent to which faculty researchers have personal financial relationships with the sponsors of their research, the nature of those financial relationships, and efforts made at the institutional level to address disclosed financial relationships and perceived conflicts of interest are assessed.

Entrepreneurship, Secrecy, and Productivity: A Comparison of Clinical and Non-Clinical Life Sciences Faculty

This paper addresses research in the life sciences, responsible for significant national expenditures for scientific investigations funded by both the federal government and industry. Our


Industry-science relationship is considered to be a very important part of the innovation system and it represents one of the crucial factors in national innovation capacity. Extant studies show that

Activities, Productivity, and Compensation of Men and Women in the Life Sciences

Men and women in the academic life sciences take on different roles as they advance through their careers, and a substantial salary gap still exists between men and women that cannot be explained by productivity or other professional factors.



Relationships between academic institutions and industry in the life sciences--an industry survey.

After more than a decade of sustained interaction, universities and industries seem to have formed durable partnerships in the life sciences, although the relationships may pose greater threats to the openness of scientific communication than universities generally acknowledge.

University-industry research relationships in biotechnology: implications for the university.

It is suggested that university-industry research relationships have both benefits and risks for academic institutions, and the challenge for universities is to find ways to manage these relationships that will preserve the benefits while minimizing the risks.
