The discussion opens with an overview of the structure and function of the Australian research enterprise in general, followed by a more detailed analysis of the academic research enterprise. This is followed by a brief overview of the development of the Australian higher education sector, leading to an overview of the development of the higher education research policy context. As the discussion demonstrates, market disciple and the principles of competition, concentration and selectivity have significantly shaped the Australian academic enterprise in recent decades.
