Abstract: The impacts of neoliberal policies and practices are producing the most important transformation of contemporary science and academia since the mid twentieth century. Neoliberal scientific policies have placed more emphasis on the creation of commercial value than on the achievement of social welfare or the generation of knowledge; the use of patents has been encouraged more than the open dissemination of knowledge and private investment has been promoted in universities and research projects developed by its researchers, in order to favour those lines of research of greater commercial application and with higher expectations of economic return. This work offers, on the one hand, a synthetic and structured overview of these transformations, with special emphasis on those changes that affect the methods, objects and products of scientific activity. The existing literature on these topics focuses, preferably, on the natural or 'hard' sciences -particularly on biomedicine- so the second objective of this work is to discuss the emergence of this type of phenomena in a much less studied area: the humanities. In particular, we will focus on the so-called 'digital humanities'.
