Leistungsmessung und Qualitätssicherung in der Wissenschaft

Das folgende Diskussionspapier wurde im Auftrag des Schweizerischen Wissenschafts- und Technologierats (SWTR) auf der Basis einer eingehenden Sichtung einschlägiger Forschungsliteratur zwischen Oktober 2012 und März 2013 von Dr. Sybille Reichert verfasst. Es schliesst an die Fragestellungen einer früheren Untersuchung im Auftrag des SWTR zur Quantifizierung der Forschungsbewertung (2010) an und führt die Frage nach den Grenzen der Forschungsbewertung fort, in dem auch qualitative Methoden der Forschungsevaluation, insbesondere im Rahmen von
Peer Review-Verfahren, ins Visier genommen werden. Dabei werden Verwendungskontexte, kognitive, psychologische und soziologische Bedingungen, Nutzen und Auswirkungen verschiedener Forschungsevaluationsmethoden auf Wissenschaftssystem und WissenschaftlerInnen untersucht. Das Diskussionspapier
stützt sich dabei nicht auf eine eigene empirische Datenerhebung, sondern setzt sich kritisch-synthetisierend mit der internationalen Forschungsliteratur zu
dem Thema auseinander.

The Metric Tide

Citations, journal impact factors, h-indices, even tweets and Facebook likes – there are no end of quantitative measures that can now be used to try to assess the quality and wider impacts of research. But how robust and reliable are such metrics, and what weight – if any – should we give them in the future management of research systems at the national or institutional level?

These questions were explored by the Independent Review of the Role of Metrics in Research Assessment and Management.

Creativity in the sciences

Foreword of report: In the light of the Irish government’s Culture and Creativity Capital Plan, which details an intent to
fortify investment in a range of cultural activities and enterprises, the Royal Irish Academy’s
Culture and Heritage Working Group has undertaken to generate position papers highlighting
modes of creativity associated with public culture, public institutions and vernacular culture.
Written by senior academics with strong ties to many of the state’s cultural institutions,
these papers constitute a set of reflections regarding the necessity for and social benefits of
supporting enhanced attention to the creativity of Irish life.

Leiden Manifesto for Research Metrics

10 principles to guide research evaluation
with 23 translations, a video and a blog
Research evaluation has become routine and often relies on metrics. But it is increasingly driven by data and not by expert judgement. As a result, the procedures that were designed to increase the quality of research are now threatening to damage the scientific system. To support researchers and managers, five experts led by Diana Hicks, professor in the School of Public Policy at Georgia Institute of Technology, and Paul Wouters, director of CWTS at Leiden University, have proposed 10 principles for the measurement of research performance: the Leiden Manifesto for Research Metrics published as a comment in Nature.
