Faure, Guy; Blundo-Canto, Genowefa; Devaux-Spatarakis, Agathe; Le Guerroué, Jean Louis; Mathé, Syndhia; Temple, Ludovic; Toillier, Aurélie; Triomphe, Bernard; Hainzelin, Etienne – Research Evaluation, 2020
Over the last decade, societal pressure has increased on public research agencies to provide evidence that their research contributes to achieve development goals. To address this challenge, the French Agricultural Research Center for International Development (Cirad), developed an ex-post impact assessment method based on the impact pathway…

Rodríguez-Navarro, Alonso; Brito, Ricardo – Research Evaluation, 2020
The use of bibliometric indicators would simplify research assessments. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) is a peer review assessment of UK universities, whose results can be taken as benchmarks for bibliometric indicators. In this study, we use the REF results to investigate whether the e[subscript p] index and a top percentile of most…

Bedessem, Baptiste – Research Evaluation, 2020
The way research is, and should be, funded by the public sphere is the subject of renewed interest for sociology, economics, management sciences, and more recently, for the philosophy of science. In this contribution, I propose a qualitative, epistemological criticism of the funding by lottery model, which is advocated by a growing number of…

Kassab, Omar; Mutz, Rüdiger; Daniel, Hans-Dieter – Research Evaluation, 2020
With the growing complexity of societal and scientific problems, research centers have emerged to facilitate the conduct of research beyond disciplinary and institutional boundaries. While they have become firmly established in the global university landscape, research centers raise some critical questions for research evaluation. Existing…

Ibrahim, Bahaa – Research Evaluation, 2020
Egyptians generally pay attention to the State Awards as the most prestigious awards that Egyptian researchers can receive, including the Nile Award, the State Appreciation Award, the State Award of Excellence, and the State Encouragement Award. The current study is an attempt to investigate the role of national awards in the scientific research…

Williams, Kate – Research Evaluation, 2020
How research is assessed affects what types of knowledge are valued, incentivized, and rewarded. An increasingly important element of contemporary research evaluation is the measurement of the wider impact of research (e.g. benefit to society, culture or economy). Although the measurement of impact has been highly contested, the area is…

Horta, Hugo; Cattaneo, Mattia; Meoli, Michele – Research Evaluation, 2019
The time for completing a Ph.D. continues to be longer than desirable in most higher education systems worldwide. This is a concern for research funding agencies, universities, academics, and doctoral students facing increasingly constrained labour markets, particularly in academia. This study assesses the role of Ph.D. funding on the time to…

McLean, Robert K. D.; Sen, Kunal – Research Evaluation, 2019
High-quality, use-oriented, and well-communicated research can improve social outcomes in low- and middle-income countries and, by doing so, accelerate development progress. We provide a meta-analysis of research supported by Canada's International Development Research Centre. We use a large and unique data set that comprises 170 research studies…

Veletanlic, Emina; Sá, Creso – Research Evaluation, 2019
Canada's research policy over the past three decades has steered national science toward industrial innovation. Yet, the outcomes of this policy orientation are debatable. Macro-level indicators continue to show weak performance in firm innovation, and there is also evidence that this policy stance has had material effects on science at the meso…

Barré, Rémi – Research Evaluation, 2019
Science and Technology (S&T) indicators are contingent knowledge demanding critique and contextualization for validity: they are value-laden devices. Hence their potential for generating biased knowledge, exhibiting the attributes of devices enabling the social construction of bias and ignorance. But indicators are also prone to criticism and…

de Oliveira, Talita Moreira; Amaral, Livio; Pacheco, Roberto Carlos dos Santos – Research Evaluation, 2019
There is a growing interest in multi/inter/transdisciplinary (MIT-D) work, which requires increasing levels of knowledge and co-production interaction. Many studies have addressed this theme with different approaches such as the nature of transversal scientific subjects, the concept of knowledge integration, and the dynamics of research groups to…

Roelofs, Susan; Edwards, Nancy; Viehbeck, Sarah; Anderson, Cody – Research Evaluation, 2019
Evaluation of interdisciplinary, team science research initiatives is an evolving and challenging field. This descriptive, longitudinal, mixed methods case study examined how an embedded, formative evaluation approach contributed to team science in the interdisciplinary Research into Policy to Enhance Physical Activity (REPOPA) project, which…

Saetnan, Ann Rudinow; Tøndel, Gunhild; Rasmussen, Bente – Research Evaluation, 2019
This qualitative case study of emergent practices in a multi-paradigmatic field at one department in Norway explores how performance metrics in science intra-act with staff composition and resource allocation, potentially affecting paradigm trends. Inspired by agential realism, we discuss four key metrics as the material core of an assemblage…
