Let’s move beyond the rhetoric: it’s time to change how we judge research
Five years ago, the Declaration on Research Assessment was a rallying point. It must now become a tool for fair evaluation, urges Stephen Curry in his call to begin changing research management practice:
There have been many calls for something better, including the Leiden Manifesto and the UK report "The Metric Tide', both released in 2015. Like DORA, these have changed the tenor of discussions around researcher assessment and paved the way for change.
It's time to shift from making declarations to finding solutions. . . .
