Assessment of Research Performance (1)

Avital, Collopy (2001) mention 2 main approaches: evaluative and explanatory

  • The Evaluative approach
    • Performance (outputs) evaluation
    • Comparison and ranking of researches, programs, institutions, etc.

    • Yield issue (e.g.publications, conferences, etc.)
    • Influence issue (e.g.journal rankings, an impact factor)

  • The Explanatory approach
    • Identification of determinants (the antecedents) of research performance
    • Individual factors
      • Demographic
      • Experience
      • Personality
    • Organizational factors
      • Mission, performance evaluation (reward system), research grants received, time spent on research and teaching, etc.

  • Mostly evaluative approach is applied
    • Bibliometric methods

  • An equal opportunity issue
    • All disciplines have no relevant local journals with an impact factor
    • Publications in foreign journals
      • Limited access
        • University have limited subscriptions to the journals
    • Participations in foreign conferences
      • Limited access
        • High costs

Assessing Research Activities in Czech University Context (3)
  • Department orientation
    • Stable significant differences in the same faculty
    • Stable significant differences in teaching duties
  • Gender issue

Assessing Research Activities in Czech University Context (4)
  • The explanatory approach has been often neglected although reports on institutional environment, research context or individual characteristics of university staff
  • Interconnections with university mission, HRM policy, and managerial competencies of university or faculty management

conclusions
Conclusions
  • There is no one best approach
  • Providing equal opportunities and application of reasonable multidimensionalcriteria is a responsibility of universities, if they apply criteria for assessing research performance
