Davies, Bleddyn P. (1993) On babies and the emptying of bathwater: contract content, incentives, and the nature of research contributions. Personal Social Services Research Unit (The full text of this publication is not available from this repository)
<p>Social science research and analysis are of three kinds; each with its mission, type of topic, time horizons, characteristic<p><p>output, and type of analysis. I characterise the three types by names of the American institutions in which I have worked during the last decade, and whose outputs in my area I have continuously monitored. <p><p><p>I suspect that the style of the analysis and product is moulded by the culture and assumptive worlds, and both reflect the<p><p>arrangements for funding and quality control., <p><p><p>The sketches in part 1 - inevitably too crude to be incontrovertibly valid descriptions - illustrate this. Part 2 thinks through some implications for implementing the post-Williams policy.
