Bonaccorsi, Andrea; Belingheri, Paola; Blasi, Brigida; Romagnosi, Sandra – Research Evaluation, 2022
Higher education institutions increasingly live in environments in which they are subject to evaluation and rankings. We examine the way in which Italian (mostly public) universities adapted to the new landscape created by the official research assessments, which have produced rankings at national level, published in 2013 and 2016. We compare the…

Hug, Sven E.; Ochsner, Michael – Research Evaluation, 2022
This study examines a basic assumption of peer review, namely, the idea that there is a consensus on evaluation criteria among peers, which is a necessary condition for the reliability of peer judgements. Empirical evidence indicating that there is no consensus or more than one consensus would offer an explanation for the "disagreement…

O'Donovan, Cian; Michalec, Aleksandra; Moon, Joshua R. – Research Evaluation, 2022
Problems framed as societal challenges have provided fresh impetus for transdisciplinary research. In response, funders have started programmes aimed at increasing transdisciplinary research capacity. However, current programme evaluations do not adequately measure the skills and characteristics of individuals and collectives doing this research.…

Samal, Parshuram; Mondal, Biswajit; Jambhulkar, Nitiprasad N/; Singh, Onkar N.; Verma, Ramlakhan; Dash, Sushant K.; Das, Anup K.; Pathak, Himanshu – Research Evaluation, 2022
Policy-makers, research managers, and donors are interested in knowing the outputs, outcomes, and impacts of investment in agricultural research. Several institutions are engaged in rice research and impact assessment of rice research requires area coverage information for rice varieties. The area coverage information for individual varieties is…

Sørensen, Ole Henning; Bjørner, Jakob; Holtermann, Andreas; Dyreborg, Johnny; Sørli, Jorid Birkelund; Kristiansen, Jesper; Nielsen, Steffen Bohni – Research Evaluation, 2022
Research funders and policymakers increasingly focus on societal benefits of their investments in research. Research institutions thus face increasing pressure to demonstrate their societal impact to prove their legitimacy and worth. To this end, research institutions need reliable, quantitative methods to measure societal impact. This article…

Derrick, Gemma E.; Bayley, Julie – Research Evaluation, 2022
This article assesses the risk of two COVID-19-related changes necessary for the expert review of the REF2021's Impact criterion: the move from face to face (F2F) to virtual deliberation; and the changing research landscape caused by the COVID-19 crisis requiring an extension of deadlines, and accommodation of COVID-19-related mitigation. Peer…

Garcia, J. A.; Rodriguez-Sanchez, Rosa; Fdez-Valdivia, J. – Research Evaluation, 2022
Reviewers are humans and might be affected by cognitive biases when information overload comes into play. In fact, no amount of scientific training will completely mask the human impulses to partisanship. And the consequence is that authors may receive incorrect editorial decisions in their submissions to peer-reviewed journals. For instance, the…

Jang, Hoon – Research Evaluation, 2022
Increasing investment and interest in research and development (R&D) requires an efficient management system for achieving better research project outputs. In tandem with this trend, there is a growing need to develop a method for predicting research project outputs. Motivated by this, using information gathered in the early stage of projects,…

Kane, Eugene I., III; Daumit, Gail L.; Fain, Kevin M.; Scherer, Roberta W.; McGinty, Emma Elizabeth – Research Evaluation, 2022
Background: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a revised, expanded definition of 'clinical trial' in 2014 to improve trial identification and administrative compliance. Some stakeholders voiced concerns that the policy added administrative burden potentially slowing research progress. Methods: This quasi-experimental study examined…

Ramos-Vielba, Irene; Thomas, Duncan A.; Aagaard, Kaare – Research Evaluation, 2022
Shaping public research to enhance its societal contribution has become a key policy concern. Against this background, how research funding may stimulate the societal orientation of scientific research--or how funding is societally targeted--has been underexplored. This article proposes an exploratory approach to characterize societal targeting in…
