Abstract

Japan was one of the first countries in East Asia to develop a mass higher education system. However, in the last couple of decades, Japanese universities have experienced drastic reform (Amano and Poole 2005; Goodman, Kariya, and Taylor 2013). In the reformation process, the transformation of the Japanese academic labor market to a more open and competitive system has been a priority matter (Yamanoi 2007; Teichler, Arimoto, and Cummings 2013).
