[U01-01] Panel discussion about research assessment

*Kazuaki Hori1 (1.Department of Geography, Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Nagoya University)

Keywords:research assessment, scientific research, open science

Research assessment mainly based on indices that can be easily quantified such as the number of papers and citations, impact factor, research grant, is spreading among researchers and institutions.

However, as typified by DORA (The Declaration on Research Assessment), there has been a movement to review and improve this situation.

In this JpGU-AGU-EGU great debate, we discuss the impact of research assessment on researchers, research institutes, research funding agencies, publishers, and even society, based on the current problems of research assessment.

We will invite experts on the issues. Please join discussions and exhange opinions concerning research assessment.
