  • CWTS :: Evaluation Practices in Context
    The use of metrics in assessing impact innovation and excellence in modern academia funded by The Swedish Research Council 2014 2017 Björn Hammarfelt Sarah de Rijcke This project concerns the governance of science with an emphasis on how research is made auditable through the use of performance indicators Publication patterns as well as questionnaires are used in order to examine how evaluation influences the practices of scholars Studies are also made of university rankings and their use in promoting the excellent university In tying the practical institutional and political levels together the project aims to provide a unique perspective on the emergence of a metrics culture in academia Using a theoretical stance in theories about the audit and risk society it aims to take the analysis beyond discussions about different models of evaluating or indicators of impact and to place it in a larger context of social and organizational change This broader perspective is required in order to understand the co evolution of governance systems and techniques of measurement a perspective where metrics is not only a symptom but also a practice that in itself contributes to these developments Excellent Science 25 years of science policy for top research Collaboration with Rathenau Institute project coordination EPIC team members Thomas Franssen Sarah de Rijcke How has the Dutch science policy landscape for excellent research taken shape in the last 25 years How has this policy contributed to a a concentration of research funding in the hands of a limited number of researchers and or research organisations b scientific innovation and break throughs EPIC contributes to the study in a sub project that analyses the research policies and knowledge production practices of 4 excellent Dutch research groups in different disciplines desk research interviews observations Quality and Relevance of Research in Law Social Sciences and Humanities Toward Evidence Informed Policies Sept 2015 Sept 2019 Consortium University Library EUR Faculty of Social Sciences EUR Centre for Public Knowledge Centre for Science and Technology Studies Leiden University EPIC team members co supervise a PhD project with prof Willem Schinkel at EUR Paul Wouters Sarah de Rijcke Collaboration with CWTS working group leaders Thed van Leeuwen and Ingeborg Meijer How can different research fields be characterised in terms of their scientific quality and societal impact Research fields within different domains Law Social Sciences and Humanities will be analysed based on their drivers and barriers for knowledge production and societal impact the different forms in which they arrive at research results and achieve societal relevance their scientific environment their group organisation and their ability to adopt multidisciplinary approaches By including evidence from mixed methods research the research will lead to a broader understanding of the different forms of knowledge production within diverse domains and of the different ways in which research groups organize their socio epistemic tasks Quantifying academic lives Practices of self evaluation under excellent conditions 2014 2015 Thomas Franssen Sarah de Rijcke Practices of self evaluation of junior researchers have become increasingly based on quantified

  • CWTS :: Societal Impact of Research
    that scientific research results have on society at large as represented by private professionals and lay public Themes Current research policy expresses an apparent need to develop additional evaluation methods that do greater justice to the variety of outputs and activities of researchers This will help to assess their impact beyond the scientific realm The working group thus aims at contributing to the further development and scientific scholarly foundation of societal research assessment methodologies that are useful in all domains of science and human scholarship The working group addresses the following three topics To identify stakeholders users of research their interactions with science and recognition of the concept by the academic and outside world To develop an independent method to retrieve data that analyzes and or quantifies scientific outputs not only publications describing societal quality of research This approach is defined as altmetrics or alternative metrics from bibliometrics To validate value and visualize the results of evaluation of societal quality In other words what is the meaning value of these societal outputs These three topics are interlinked and can t be studied in isolation especially because of the complex and intricate societal impact of science which are both long term and difficult to attribute to specific scientific research Working Groups Advanced Bibliometric Methods Evaluation Practices in Context Societal Impact of Research Themes Contact People Career Policy Paths in Science Social Sciences Humanities Law Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on linkedin Share Share this page Contact For more information about the SURe working group please contact Ingeborg Meijer working group leader at i meijer cwts leidenuniv nl People Ingeborg Meijer Researcher and coordinator of the Society Using Research SURe working group Ingeborg focuses on the development of proxies tools and indicators to assess the uses of research in society

    blogs news media and reference management tools Altmetrics The term altmetrics coined by Jason Priem in 2010 as an alternative way of measuring impact in the social web aims at enhancing and complementing the more traditional ways of impact assessment by expanding the idea of impact This development of the concept of altmetrics has been accompanied by a growth in the diversity of tools that aim to track real time impact of scientific outputs These new web based tools intend to capture and track a wide range of researcher s outputs by aggregating altmetrics data across a wide variety of sources are being currently developed e g Impact Story PLOS ALM Plum Analytics Altmetric com F1000 Mendeley etc The evidence of impact provided by these tools allows both real time and a broader analysis of impact of research outputs and offers new opportunities for research assessment The actual meaning of these types of real time analysis also requires further investigation This line has a transversal perspective and is part of the working group SURe where the contribution of altmetrics in assessing societal use of research is assessed Societal Impact of Research Altmetrics Altmetrics Our Line of Research People Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on linkedin Share Share this page Our Line of Research The aim of the Altmetrics research line at CWTS is to investigate the different altmetrics tools in order to study the potential and feasibility of altmetrics as a new data source for research assessment purposes and to explore what types of impact scientific societal cultural can be supported by them Some topics of research are the following The study and analysis of the features and possibilities of the different altmetrics data sources and the metrics that they provide Developing and conceptualizing systematic ways of measuring
