Ethnicity and justice - academic management: research mapping
Annex 1: Overview Summary Tables - Project Topics

Annex 1: Overview Summary Tables - Project Topics

Table 1, below shows how many projects fitted into each of the main topics and sub-topics from the research audit and survey question. Due to the limited amount of information provided about projects in the survey, where respondents included more than one project, and ticked multiple boxes to indicate the topics those projects related to, each of those projects will be listed beside all the topics selected by respondents. This might result in a degree of over-counting for certain topics, by attributing all of a respondent’s projects to all of the topics they selected, when that topic might only relate to one of the projects.

Projects in Table 1, are listed in the order of previous, then current, then future research, and are listed alphabetically by project title within this.
