Open Science Lunch: Researcher Assessment
Learn about how assessment of researchers is changing throughout Europe and how you can use this as a tool to plan your own career.
About the topic
Researchers are continuously being assessed; when applying for a position, a promotion or a research grant. While assessors want researchers to fill many different roles, a practice of too much emphasis on publications in so-called high impact journals has developed in many fields. The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), developed in 2012, recognizes the need to improve the ways in which the outputs of scholarly research are evaluated, and has spurred efforts to reform research assessment worldwide. Universities Norway (Universitets- og Høgskolerådet; UHR) appointed a working group, which in 2021 developed NOR-CAM – A toolbox for recognition and rewards in academic careers.
Grab your matpakke and join us for a short presentation on NOR-CAM and how it is being followed up at UiO by a member of the UHR working group Professor Finn-Eirik Johansen from the Department of Biosciences at University of Oslo, and for an open Q&A session afterwards!
About Open Science Lunch
Each last Thursday of the month at 12.00 we invite you to join us virtually for an online open lunch to hear about how to make your research more open. We will discuss research transparency and visibility, open publishing, data sharing, and more! After each short presentation we will have a Q&A session, where you can ask questions or try yourself some of the tools and solutions we will present!
