The University of Glasgow has developed a policy on the use of quantitative indicators in research evaluation that aligns with the principles of the Leiden Manifesto. In the statement, the university commits to:
1. Adopt assessment procedures that are evidence-based
2. Apply quantitative indicators responsibly by using a defined and balanced set of measures that are normalised by subject.
3. Declare the quantitative indicators used, and apply them fairly and consistently.
4. Evaluate researchers based on performance across different dimensions, with expectations set in advance and clearly communicated to researchers.
5. Undertake regular review of the quantitative indicators.
The statement on the use of quantitative indicators in research evaluation can be found here. It is located within a larger suite of policies governing research at the university that can be found here. The University is in the process of writing an annual statement on research culture in which they will detail their implementation plan.
