DORA – 10 Years On

The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) is 10 years old. As an homage, we are displaying a few titles related to the issue in the entrance of the Library this week.

Metrics-based research assessment is considered a root cause of the crisis of scholarly publishing via the famous motto “Publish or perish”. The culture in academia is slowly evolving towards more qualitative evaluation, as multiple initiatives show since then, including COARA, the Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment.

Many events are organised during the 10th anniversary week from May 12 to 19. Check them out!

You can read more about metrics in scholarly publishing in our dedicated guide. If you would like some information about sustainable publishing and open access options, visit us on Tuesday at the FAB for the IHEID Book and Podcast Festival or contact
