Research Evaluation & Assessing Research Quality
Indicators • Impact • Integrity
Assessing the quality of research comprises many aspects that need to be taken into consideration. Quite a large number of research outcomes can be measured numerically. However, this also leaves room for debate: Are number of publications, citations or doctoral students sufficient indicators for research assessment? Which other criteria are useful to measure research?
The most difficult question remains how to demonstrate the actual impact of research on society. From an institutional point of view it is therefore essential to establish a quality management system that can fulfil external demands. Furthermore, it is necessary to fully involve all stakeholders concerned.
As research results become increasingly important for international rankings and external funding, it is crucial to figure out how to assess research. How can research results be compared across different subject areas? Where to find the right counterparts to benchmark the institution’s research performance? Which tools are available to assess research quality? How can KPI’s support my organisation in measuring research results? Furthermore, aspects such as research integrity and ethics in research complement the wide spectrum of quality in research and represent further challenges in the daily work of staff responsible.
