This has led to tenure track faculty manipulating the system and publishing papers that are sub-par, often plagiarised or highly unoriginal.

Interestingly, those on the tenure track (yellow) thought that self-motivation was the one soft factor that matters, reflecting personal accountability in the prevailing "publish or perish" dilemma.
Adapting the concept of madrinas (godmothers), senior REAL members provided mentorship and guidance to junior Latina faculty who were navigating the tenure track (Nunez, & Murakami-Ramalho, 2011).
Expectations The participants felt pressured by seemingly unrealistic expectations as new tenure-track faculty: "The expectations of tenure are that you do an entire career's worth of work in the space of 6 years." Despite such expectations, one participant described her personal development during the first two years on the tenure track as the "most incredible journey as a person, scholar, mother, and woman."

This is fantastic advice, and works fine in those instances in which your assistance is requested in compiling a Sons of Italy membership telephone directory, a Philadelphia attorney needs your translation help on a mafia-related trial, and a computer guru wishes you to consult on a Dante project in the virtual realm of Second Life (all among the actual requests that I have received since beginning the tenure track).

Institutional budget constraints have expedited long-term declines in the number of full-time, tenure track faculty positions available in many academic disciplines, especially the humanities.
