The Current Health and Future Well-being of the American Research University

The Current Health and Future Well-being of the American Research University: A Report by The Research Universities Futures Consortium.  June 2012.

As noted on pages 35 and 37 of the report:

"Innovation requires diversity of high quality research and development of standardized performance metrics that reliably reflect the complexity and societal expectations of today’s research. . .
