The Flemish Performance-based Research Funding System: A Unique Variant of the Norwegian Model

1994 ( Spruyt & Engels, 2013 ). Originally the BOF-key was based primarily on input indicators. A major change occurred in 2003 with the addition of bibliometric parameters based on publication and citation data from the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) of Web of Science (WoS) to the system ( Debackere & Glänzel, 2004 ). From then onwards, the BOF-key became a PRFS. This change, however, triggered strong criticism among the scholarly community in Flanders ( De Wever, 2007 ), as the nature of the SCIE caused scholarly publications in the social sciences and

The Most Famous Writer of the Low Countries: Herman Brusselmans Star Author and (Reluctant) Public Intellectual


The Flemish writer Herman Brusselmans is the most famous author of the Low Countries. In this article, Herman Brusselmans is analysed as a star author. First and foremost, two striking aspects of Brusselmans’s stardom are analysed: his public visibility and the cult of the private. Attention is then focused on Brusselmans’s experience of celebrity, which he - like many other star authors - thematises in his books. Doing so, he consciously places himself in the context of popular culture. On the other hand, as a result of his celebrity status he has been expected - particularly in the last few years - to assume the role of public intellectual willy-nilly, and this in turn has had consequences for his work.

Media disruption and the public interest
How private media managers talk about responsibility to society in an era of turmoil

less about how private media companies and their managers define their role in society in an era of change. The current transformation of the media market has been discussed widely. Based on the same data set as this article, that is, interviews with private media managers in Flanders and Norway, the key challenges for private media in small markets are identified as digitization, internationalization and changing business models ( Donders et al., 2018 ). These disruptions pose problems but also present opportunities for private media. Digitization implies

Disclosing and Evaluating Artistic Research

. Turning to the paper’s case study, we first establish how the situation in Flanders—the Dutch-speaking northern region of Belgium—differs from most European examples in that institutions for higher art education (IHAEs) are now in an association with universities, but have not been subsumed into their structures (Ysebaert & Martens, 2018). As autonomous institutions, they are not included in university PRFSs—contrasting contemporary evaluation frameworks in some other European contexts (e.g. Lewandowska & Stano, 2018; Jewesbury, 2009 )—and will be evaluated with a

Mapping Diversity of Publication Patterns in the Social Sciences and Humanities: An Approach Making Use of Fuzzy Cluster Analysis

, 2011 ) or in that of cognitive structure, mostly of a single discipline ( Lin & Kaid, 2000 ; Persson, 2015 ). In an effort to document intra-disciplinary diversity in a more systematic way, Verleysen and Weeren (2016) have performed a hard partitioning cluster analysis on the publication patterns of 1,828 individual authors belonging to 16 SSH disciplines and affiliated with the five universities in Flanders, Belgium. This analysis at the author level has demonstrated that intra-disciplinary diversity as regards publication patterns in Flanders is considerable, as
