Richard Baggaley - London Publishing Partnership Richard Baggaley set up professional publishing services and research consultancy, London Publishing Partnership in 2012. Prior to this, he had worked in academic book publishing as an editor, publisher and director.

He notes: "When I first started, I worked for a big American company and they offered to pay half the fees. I figured that my CV would look better with an MBA. There was definitely no direct link between getting the MBA and getting a promotion but it seemed like a good idea to improve my marketability. I also had a bit of a hankering to one day start my own business."
Baggaley explains that studying for an MBA has helped him by allowing him to "better understand the way that organisations work, what motivates people and the importance of company culture. Managing a creative business was a particular interest of mine and the course was great in that respect."
When asked whether he would recommend studying for an MBA Baggaley adds a note of caution: "It depends on the MBA and where you are doing it.

Its focus groups criticized "higher workloads and long hours, finance-driven decisions, remote senior management teams and greater pressure for internal and external accountability."11 Some of the most telling testimony on the damage to British scholarship inflicted by the HEFCE/RAE regime has come not from an academic but from Richard Baggaley, the European publishing director of Princeton University Press, and an acute observer of the quality of British scholarly output.

Writing in the Times Higher Education Supplement in May 2007, Baggaley deplored what he saw as "a trend towards short-termism and narrowness of focus in British academe."12 In the natural and social sciences this took the form of "intense individual and team pressure to publish journal articles," with the writing of books strongly discouraged, and especially the writing of what he calls "big idea books" that may define their disciplines. Baggaley attributes this bias against books directly to the distorting effects of the RAE. Journal articles are congenial to the RAE because they can be safely completed and peer-reviewed in good time for the RAE deadline. If they are in a prestigious journal, that is the kind of peer approval that will impress the RAE panelists.
The pressure to be published in the top journals, Baggaley wrote, also
' . . . increases a tendency to play to what the journal likes, to not threaten the status quo in the discipline, to be risk-averse and less innovative, to concentrate on small incremental steps and to avoid big-picture interdisciplinary work. n the humanities the RAE bias also works in favor of the 180-200-page monograph, hyperspecialized, cautious and incremental in its findings, with few prospects for sale as a bound book but again with a good chance of being completed and peer-reviewed in time for the RAE deadline. A bookseller at Blackwell's, the leading Oxford bookstore, told me that he dreaded the influx of such books as the RAE deadline approached.'
Baggaley doesn't mention a further set of practices, above and beyond the RAE, that push British academics toward "short-termism and narrowness of focus" in their research.
