ABSTRACT

The academic contract system is a distinctive academic governance model with Chinese characteristics. The current academic field involves three logical interactions: administrative power, market competition, and academic power. The academic contract system is essentially a mixed governance form that integrates hierarchical, project-based, and tournament based systems. Based on a thorough analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the academic outsourcing system, this study proposes relevant suggestions for further optimizing the academic outsourcing system, such as strengthening the construction of autonomous norms for academic communities, establishing flexible evaluation goals, and improving the collaborative mechanism between academic contractors. The academic outsourcing system provides a new perspective for studying the academic governance model with Chinese characteristics. This research perspective helps to shift the overall operational mechanism of academic governance from static disclosure to dynamic depiction, and also facilitates pushing the academic governance concept of the binary opposition between bureaucracy and academic autonomy towards a more complex and interactive thinking framework.
