Assessing Research and Education

Modified: February 26, 2018

Several articles discuss innovations in how research and training are judged. A Nature article covers the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment’s work to decrease the use of journal impact factors to assess individual papers and people. Inside Higher Ed and Sciencecover a new book on ‘metric fixation,’ The Tyranny of Metrics, as well as an interview with the author Jerry Muller. Lastly, an economic journal and a business journal are trying a new approach to accepting papers, a registration-based editorial process in which papers are accepted before the results are known, to increase data transparency and reproducibility.
