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…

A researcher's number of publications has been a fundamental merit in the competition for academic positions since the late 18th century.

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…
