Research policy and education research: Accountability phobia, or a clash of interpretations?

Abstract:
This piece reflects on the shifts in public understandings of researcher accountability over the past few decades. In particular, it looks at what has been described as a decline of professional, ethical and communicative accountability in favour of more technical, managerial and bureaucratic modes.This was accompanied by a conceptual change, from accountability as responsibility and communicative reason to accountability as hierarchical answerability (with corresponding shifts in values, concepts of public good, and hierarchies of knowledge).
