Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper takes an overview of the history of both the funding and the assessment of research within Business Schools in the wider context of social science research which examines the practice of management.

Design/methodology/approach – Historical archives and current statistical data are both considered in the context of various writings on the nature of management and business school research.

Findings – Many of the issues are deep seated but overall it is particularly important to emphasise the importance of “translation” in both engagement and interaction and also better links through intermediaries.

Originality/value – The paper adds to the on-going debate about the relevance of management research as well as the role of business school.
