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…

Roelofs, Susan; Edwards, Nancy; Viehbeck, Sarah; Anderson, Cody – Research Evaluation, 2019
Evaluation of interdisciplinary, team science research initiatives is an evolving and challenging field. This descriptive, longitudinal, mixed methods case study examined how an embedded, formative evaluation approach contributed to team science in the interdisciplinary Research into Policy to Enhance Physical Activity (REPOPA) project, which…

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…

Milzow, Katrin; Reinhardt, Anke; Söderberg, Sten; Zinöcker, Klaus – Research Evaluation, 2019
Many research funding and research performing organizations evaluate their operations or are subject to evaluations. A Working Group within Science Europe undertook to illustrate how "ex post" evaluation of research is actually used. Based on 11 case studies from seven organizations and countries, we explore the use of evaluation studies…

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…

Gibson, Chris; Stutchbury, Tamantha; Ikutegbe, Victoria; Michielin, Nicole – Research Evaluation, 2019
Challenge-led interdisciplinary research is a relatively new way of bringing together disciplinary expertise in response to complex societal and environmental problems. Common difficulties include how to define 'interdisciplinary research'; how to improve the participation and flourishing of early-career researchers; and how to manage projects…

Kulczycki, Emanuel – Research Evaluation, 2019
This study investigates what names of metrics or databases researchers use to present their research portfolio and how their use is influenced by the field. I have analysed the data comprising 3,695 self-presentation documents (82,710 pages) from various academic promotion procedures in Poland. My study aims to determine the differences in the use…

Boshoff, Nelius; Sefatsa, Mpho – Research Evaluation, 2019
This study applied the 'productive interactions' approach of research impact assessment to the case of maritime piracy research in South Africa. The focus was on the stakeholder interactions associated with the doctoral work and related activities of an individual researcher. A set of documents--provided by the researcher as evidence of potential…

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…

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…

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…

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…
