The research dating scores and the prestige of the magazines published found a higher education survey of almost 10,000 academics.


In addition to the personal interactions of an individual with another academic, the perceived quality of the magazine where a researcher publishes is the most influential factor by forming an opinion about his academic position, with almost half (49 percent) of 9,609 respondents who say it is so. Important and 12 percent that says it is more important.

asked about dating metrics, 24 percent say that index H of an academic and other similar measures are important, and 5 percent say they are the most crucial factor. P > If academics do you have to pay to attend awards ceremonies?

While personal interactions are more important (69 percent rate this as important and 41 percent more important) in matters of reputation, the popularity of the bibliometry may surprise some academics after sustained efforts to reduce the so -called prestigious economy in academic publication, which many blame the growing subscription and open access costs in the main magazines and marginalization of world class research published outside the renowned titles. >

Last month, more than 350 organizations from more than 40 countries signed a new pact, based on the 2015 Leiden Manifesto, which would see research mainly evaluated on qualitative measures and metrics based on abandoned magazine. This agreement occurred almost 10 years after the signing of the statement of the San Francisco investigation evaluation, which sought to eliminate the use of magazine based on the magazine by taking funds, appointment and promotion decisions, and which has now been signed for almost 20,000 people and 2,600 institutions worldwide.

According to the Times higher education survey, approximately half of the institutions (48 percent) used the quality of the magazine in which the investigation is published to judge whether a research collaboration had succeeded Or not, more than the proportion (37 percent) that said that the tangible impact of the investigation beyond the academy would be the criterion of success.
