The New Academia
Rebecca Willen has an interesting post up on Medium about some alternatives to the tradition academic model of conducting research. I doubt traditional academia is going anywhere, but it is quite clear that independent institutions can fill in some gaps and provide some freedoms that might not be afforded elsewhere. In the meantime, this article offers an overview of the potential challenges independent researchers might face and how those challenges can be successfully handled. Worth a read.
