Petersen, Jessica – Research Evaluation, 2017
Journal editors play a crucial role in the scientific publication system, as they make the final decision on acceptance or rejection of manuscripts. Some critics, however, suspect that the more innovative a manuscript is, the less likely it will be accepted for publication. Especially top-tier journals are accused of rejecting innovative research.…

Hammarfelt, Björn; Rushforth, Alexander D. – Research Evaluation, 2017
A researcher's number of publications has been a fundamental merit in the competition for academic positions since the late 18th century. Today, the simple counting of publications has been supplemented with a whole range of bibliometric indicators, which supposedly not only measures the volume of research but also its impact. In this study, we…

Reale, Emanuela; Zinilli, Antonio – Research Evaluation, 2017
Evaluation for the allocation of project-funding schemes devoted to sustain academic research often undergoes changes of the rules for the ex-ante selection, which are supposed to improve the capability of peer review to select the best proposals. How modifications of the rules realize a more accountable evaluation result? Do the changes suggest…

Youtie, Jan; Solomon, Gregg E. A.; Carley, Stephen; Kwon, Seokbeom; Porter, Alan L. – Research Evaluation, 2017
For decades, there have been calls for bringing the Cognitive Science literature and Educational Research literature into greater and more systematic contact, resulting in the publication of a number of influential papers and the launch of targeted federal funding programs around the turn of the century. This article explores the extent of the…

Müller, Ruth; de Rijcke, Sarah – Research Evaluation, 2017
While quantitative performance indicators are widely used by organizations and individuals for evaluative purposes, little is known about their impacts on the epistemic processes of academic knowledge production. In this article we bring together three qualitative research projects undertaken in the Netherlands and Austria to contribute to filling…

Baccini, Alberto; De Nicolao, Giuseppe – Research Evaluation, 2017
This letter documents some problems in Ancaiani et al. (2015). Namely the evaluation of concordance, based on Cohen's kappa, reported by Ancaiani et al. was not computed on the whole random sample of 9,199 articles, but on a subset of 7,597 articles. The kappas relative to the whole random sample were in the range 0.07-0.15, indicating an…

Bruno, Karl; Larsen, Katarina; van Leeuwen, Thed N. – Research Evaluation, 2017
This article examines dynamics of knowledge production and discourses of basic-applied science and relevance at the Swedish Institute for Surface Chemistry, a semi-public industrially oriented research institute, from 1980 to 2005. We employ a three-pronged method, consisting of (1) an analysis of how the institute articulated its research…

Ahmed, Mohamed O.; Daw, Mohamed A.; van Velkinburgh, Jennifer C. – Research Evaluation, 2017
Understanding the publication output of a country's biomedical research can provide information for strengthening its policies, economy, and educational systems. Yet, this is the first bibliometric study to date to analyze and provide an in-depth discussion of the biomedical research productivity from Libyan academic institutions. The biomedical…

Aboal, Diego; Tacsir, Ezequiel – Research Evaluation, 2017
In this article we perform an impact evaluation of a programme that provides ex post subsidies to researchers in Paraguay. The analysis spans across the first 2 years following the programme (short-run). Ex post subsidies are prevalent in Latin America; however, the analysis of their effects has received little attention in the literature. Thanks…

Mejlgaard, Niels; Ryan, Thomas Kjeldager – Research Evaluation, 2017
In the context of growing societal demand and interdependency, universities need to prioritize their "third mission" activities and balance them against core functions. Individual researchers too are faced with multiple external constituencies and various mechanisms for interaction. The degree, target, and mode of their involvement with…

Ambrasat, Jens; Tesch, Jakob – Research Evaluation, 2017
The introduction of structured doctoral programs (SDPs) is changing the conditions of doctoral training in Europe and worldwide. SDPs were introduced to reorganize doctoral training to make it more transparent and to improve the quality of doctoral training and supervision. This article suggests a conceptual framework to assess the outcome of…
