Annual report: a recap of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) activities in 2020
DORA’s vision is to advance practical and robust approaches to research assessment globally and across all scholarly disciplines. Dora's annual report makes for interesting reading particulary the section relating to the Tools to Advance Research Assessment (TARA) project. The aim of Project TARA is to identify, understand, and make visible the criteria and standards universities use to make hiring, promotion, and tenure decisions. This information will be used to create resources and practical guidance on the reform of research assessment for academic and scholarly institutions. Project TARA is a collaboration with Sarah de Rijcke, Professor in Science and Evaluation Studies and Director of the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University, and Ruth Schmidt, Associate Professor at the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
