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…

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…

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…

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…

Glennie, Miriam; O'Donnell, Michael; Brown, Michelle; Benson, John – Research Evaluation, 2019
Evaluators play a central role in assessments of researchers' performance for reward, but the nature of their role and influence is not well understood. Ongoing reliance on evaluator judgement is typically justified as a need for referees in contests for reward, because quantitative performance measures alone can be subject to distortion. Yet, if…

Ma, Lai – Research Evaluation, 2019
Adapted from the Norwegian model, University College Dublin has implemented the Output-Based Research Support Scheme (OBRSS) to stimulate research performance. Semi-structured interviews were conducted to understand the perception of the OBRSS after two years of implementation, its implications on research and publication practices, and the…

Botha, L.; Grobbelaar, S. S.; Bam, W. G. – Research Evaluation, 2019
From the evaluation literature related to research and innovation policy, calls have long been made for improved evaluation processes especially where projects and programmes may be evaluated from a systems perspective. Drawing on the literature of innovation systems and innovation for inclusive development (I4ID) this research proposes a…

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…

Payumo, Jane G.; Lan, George; Arasu, Prema – Research Evaluation, 2018
This study offers a unique lens on the patterns, productivity, and impact of researcher mobility at a US research-intensive university. Bibliometric data for Washington State University (WSU) was extracted from Elsevier's Scopus database and analyzed for the 10-year period from 2002 to 2012. We grouped researchers into four categories based on…

Waaijer, Cathelijn J. F. – Research Evaluation, 2018
Human capital is indispensable for regional innovation and economic growth, and PhD graduates (PhDs) play an important role in these processes. This is the first study describing the geographic origin and current work location of PhDs from Dutch universities, which are located in a densely populated area with a high concentration of basic science…

Thorpe, Andy; Craig, Russell; Hadikin, Glenn; Batistic, Sasa – Research Evaluation, 2018
This article applies "DICTION" computer-assisted text analysis software to evaluate the tone of research 'Environment' submissions by Business and Management Studies schools in the UK's 2014 Research Evaluation Framework. We find that submissions contain distinctive differences in semantic tone between high-ranked and low-ranked…

Snowball, Jen D.; Shackleton, Charlie M. – Research Evaluation, 2018
Research is increasingly regarded a core facet of university endeavours globally, and research profiles of universities, institutes, and colleges are commonly used as one measure for ranking them. University administrations and funders would be better able to stimulate research if they had insights into context-specific, institutional constraints,…

Hansen, Thomas Trøst; Budtz Pedersen, David – Research Evaluation, 2018
Demands on publicly funded scientific research to yield academic and societal impact have been commonplace for some time. Research communities, university administrators, and policy-makers are looking to impact assessments and impact tool kits to better communicate the value of scholarly work, increase collaboration with nonacademic partners, and…

Walsh, Rachael; Moore, Robert F.; Doyle, Jamie Mihoko – Research Evaluation, 2018
To assist new scientists in the transition to independent research careers, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) implemented an Early Stage Investigator (ESI) policy beginning with applications submitted in 2009. During the review process, the ESI designation segregates applications submitted by investigators who are within 10 years of…

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. Evaluation techniques based on performance indicators or rankings risk rewarding just a specific type of university and undermining university diversification: they usually introduce homogenizing pressures…
