    	abstract =	{The development process used by researchers often seems to
    	be random and unsystematic.  A Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
    	is often not considered, internal commenting is scarce, and external
    	documentation takes the form of erasure marks left on whiteboards.
    	Configuration management is paid lip-service, but is not standard
    	practice.  This paper examines some reasons behind the apparent
    	large-scale non-adoption of software engineering in academic research.
    	We also look at the effects on some projects where it was adopted.
    	Finally we present a new SDLC designed for the academic research
    	environment, suggest an organisational structure to maximize the
    	benefit to research students, academics, and the institution.},
