PRESENTING ON: New Measurement Paradigms in Research: 'What is High-Quality Research in the 21st Century’
This presentation will look at the current challenges for the assessment of research quality. In an environment where government are looking ever harder at the case of investment in research and innovation against competition from health, the environment, and social imperatives we will look at academic impact and societal impact and different ways of recognising both. With the pressures on academics and their careers, and also at the importance of open access we will look at the implications of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment and new Open Access initiatives such as Plan S. With the pressures on university budgets we will look at the competition for investment between education and research.
