Petsakos, Athanasios; Hareau, Guy; Kleinwechter, Ulrich; Wiebe, Keith; Sulser, Timothy B. – Research Evaluation, 2018
This article examines how the estimated impacts of crop technologies vary with alternate methods and assumptions, and also discusses the implications of these differences for the design of studies to inform research prioritization. Drawing on international potato research, we show how foresight scenarios, realized by a multi-period global…

Chavarro, Diego; Ràfols, Ismael; Tang, Puay – Research Evaluation, 2018
The assessment of research based on the journal in which it is published is a widely adopted practice. Some research assessments use the Web of Science (WoS) to identify 'high quality' journals, which are assumed to publish excellent research. The authority of WoS on journal quality stems from its selection of journals based on editorial standards…

de la Torre, Eva M.; Casani, Fernando; Sagarra, Marti – Research Evaluation, 2018
Universities are organizational structures with individual activity mixes or strategies that lead to different performance levels by mission.

Wildgaard, Lorna; Wildgaard, Kim – Research Evaluation, 2018
There is an increased focus on the outcomes of Health Science PhD-education, particularly if PhD-graduates remain active in research. There is a gap in our knowledge about the extent the investment in Health Science PhDs is moving science forward and no definition of expected investment return from PhD exists. We explore the research production of…

Lewandowska, Kamila; Stano, Pawel Miroslaw – Research Evaluation, 2018
Art studies, as an academic discipline, is an under-researched topic, especially with reference to science evaluation. Yet, it is a particularly interesting field to study given that it does not easily fit into the 'science' category. Our analysis centres on the core element of the evaluation system: scientific journals in the field of arts. We…

Bornmann, Lutz; Haunschild, Robin – Research Evaluation, 2017
Bibliometrics is successful in measuring impact because the target is clearly defined: the publishing scientist who is still active and working. Thus, citations are a target-oriented metric which measures impact on science. In contrast, societal impact measurements based on altmetrics are as a rule intended to measure impact in a broad sense on…
