I've done my 4 pieces for the REF so I don't have to write any more. (Colleague) Writing is like life, you could go under (Toni Morrison) Academics are subject to confusing sets of values in a marketised higher education system which sees students as co-producers of knowledge and also consumers, customers and products. In the turmoil of competing drives to re-orientate, academic identities are also in turmoil. This paper focuses on tensions between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, which drives writing for academic publication, and the tangled personal and professional academic identities which relate to these tensions.
