Bautista-Puig, Núria; García-Zorita, Carlos; Mauleón, Elba – Research Evaluation, 2019
European Research Council Grants (ERC) have become the most important vehicle for funding scientific research in the EU. Since their creation in 2007, they have provided funding for around 7,000 of the nearly 70,000 proposals for research projects submitted. With a success rate of about 11%, these Grants are highly competitive. Despite major…

Gingras, Yves; Khelfaoui, Mahdi – Research Evaluation, 2019
Given the importance of books and book chapters as vehicles of knowledge in social sciences and humanities (SSH) disciplines, it has previously been thought that the application of citation metrics to the evaluation of these disciplines should also include, in addition to journal articles, citations from books and book chapters. The main argument…

Luo, Junwen; Ordóñez-Matamoros, Gonzalo; Kuhlmann, Stefan – Research Evaluation, 2019
Evaluation taking place within publicly funded research institutions (PRIs) has been practiced as a useful instrument to justify PRIs' public funding and to provide evidence for their internal decision-making. The role of evaluation in organizational governance is well-acknowledged as being important in PRIs' management practices. However, it has…

Hiruy, Kiros; Murphy, Ray; Lewis, Tom; White, William T.; Purcell, Steven W. – Research Evaluation, 2019
Research-for-development (R4D), as a mode of foreign aid, is a practical way to support developing countries. However, few studies have assessed the scientific impacts of R4D projects. Here, we applied an integrated assessment approach to evaluate the scientific impact of research projects commissioned by the Australian Centre for International…

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…

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…

Krog Lind, Jonas – Research Evaluation, 2019
The impact of Performance-based Research Funding System (PRFS) has received increasing attention in recent years. However, the literature has focused on individual-level or country-level effects, mostly ignoring the 'missing link' between PRFSs and their effects: university managers. Drawing upon the sociology of numbers and theories of…
