1,726 views

Published on

The European University Association (EUA) is committed to raising awareness and supporting universities in the improvement of research assessment practices that focus on research quality, potential and future impact, and that take into account Open Science practices. This presentation teases the results of a Europe-wide university consultation on research assessment in the transition to Open Science, carried out in the first half of 2019. A report with a full analysis of the survey results will be published in October 2019.

  27. 27. © EUA 2019 Summary - Universities consider themselves autonomous, but are keenly aware of external pressures - Research assessment is primarily, but not only developed at the institutional and faculty/department level - Publishing research and attracting external research funding makes careers in research - Quantitative metrics (JIF and h-index) and qualitative peer-review are the leading methods for careers in research - Open Science and Open Access are not commonly part of the incentive and reward system for researchers - Universities are starting to review their research assessment practices, but are moving in different directions 27
