Abstract

In this article, we seek to problematise the seemingly persistent gap between the results of academic research and professional practice in the field of Information Technology (IT). That this is a problem is widely acknowledged. We propose some ways that this gap can be bridged. However, building bridges to link academic research to practical and exploitable outcomes is not enough, for like all bridges, these particular ones must be maintained. We also propose some ways that this may be done.
