Lam, Steven; Dodd, Warren; Whynot, Jane; Skinner, Kelly – Research Evaluation, 2019
Gender equity is an increasingly discussed priority and cross-cutting theme within international development evaluation. However, it is unclear whether advances being made in evaluating the outcomes in this area are reflected in the scholarly literature. In this context, a fundamental question is: How is gender being addressed in international…

Degn, Lise; Mejlgaard, Niels; Schneider, Jesper Wiborg – Research Evaluation, 2019
The aim of this article is to present an alternative method for science mapping, which remedies some of the classic limitations to e.g. using co-citation analysis as a mapping tool. With the emergence of new, more complex and interdisciplinary areas of research it becomes important to adjust our understandings of how to study these areas, 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…

Testa, Giuseppina; Szkuta, Katarzyna; Cunningham, Paul N. – Research Evaluation, 2019
Responding to the lack of in-depth research into the effects of R&D grants for scale-ups, this article examines how they impact upon firms' employment, firm economic and innovative performance, and firm innovative activities. Drawing on both policy evaluations and empirical literature relating to R&D programmes and firms' outputs, it…

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…

This article focuses on the social impact of educational sciences. It introduces a framework for studying the social impact of research and uses it to analyze the social impact of the work of a research group studying learning difficulties at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. The framework suggests that the social impact of research can be…

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…

Weißhuhn, Peter; Helming, Katharina; Ferretti, Johanna – Research Evaluation, 2018
Research has a role to play in society's endeavour for sustainable development. This is particularly true for agricultural research, since agriculture is at the nexus between numerous sustainable development goals. Yet, generally accepted methods for linking research outcomes to sustainability impacts are missing. We conducted a review of…

Dorta-González, Pablo; Santana-Jiménez, Yolanda – Research Evaluation, 2018
The potential benefit of open access (OA) in relation to citation impact has been discussed in the literature in depth. The methodology used to test the OA citation advantage includes comparing OA vs. non-OA journal impact factors and citations of OA vs. non-OA articles published in the same non-OA journals. However, one problem with many studies…

Budd, Julia M. – Research Evaluation, 2018
Evaluating cross-disciplinary collaboration has generally been undertaken using disciplinary standards. However, this practice is increasingly being found to be inadequate due to the often contradictory nature of the methods used. It has been suggested that methods that consider the unique integrative nature of these studies be employed. This…

Riley, Barbara L.; Kernoghan, Alison; Stockton, Lisa; Montague, Steve; Yessis, Jennifer; Willis, Cameron D. – Research Evaluation, 2018
Assessing societal impacts of research is more difficult than assessing advances in knowledge. Methods to evaluate research impact on policy processes and outcomes are especially underdeveloped, and are needed to optimize the influence of research on policy for addressing complex issues such as chronic diseases. Contribution analysis (CA), a…

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…
