Some Indicators of Performance
Director, Centre for South Pacific Studies
I was appointed Acting Director of this UNSW Centre in January 1993 and subsequently appointed Director on May 4, 1993. I was able to raise more than $250,000 for Centre activities. A letter from Tony Wicken (June 17, 1994) acknowledged "this tremendous contribution to the University of New South Wales". The UNSW Centre Review Report noted that "The Committee was impressed by what Dr Lodewijks has been able to achieve since he became Acting Director and now Director of the Centre. Having inherited a deficit of $15,000, he has energetically and successfully pursued substantial funding for the Centre and has continued the Centre's publication program more or less single-handedly".
Editor, History of Economics Review
At the Sixth Biennial Conference of the Australian History of Economic Thought Society (July 1991) I was elected editor of the Society's official publication, then called the HETSA Bulletin. As editor I attempted to raise the status of the journal in the profession. I transformed this publication into a fully-refereed international journal, titled the History of Economics Review.
Head, Department of Economics, University of New South Wales
At UNSW I was particularly pleased with recruiting outcomes. There are at least five staff that I helped recruit at Lecturer level that later went on to Chairs in Economics at other Australian universities
Head of School, School of Economics & Finance, University of Western Sydney
At UWS there is a record of sustained improvement. Our PhD candidature has doubled since 2007, our Student feedback on teaching has put us near the top among all UWS Schools – we were ranked the second most highly rated School in Autumn 2011. In 2009 the School of Economics and Finance was ranked number three in Research Publications and equal fifth in research load amongst UWS Schools. In 2010, in terms of Research Publications (sum of weighted HERDC points), SEF was ranked number one among all 16 Schools with 8.02% of all UWS publications.
I have published over 100 journal articles and book chapters. The journals include the History of Political Economy, Journal of Economic Surveys, Australian Economic Papers, Journal of Economic Methodology, Econometric Theory, Economic Record, and Journal of the Asia Pacific Economy.
