Owing to the complexity and uncertainty of scientific research projects, government-funded institutions often invite multiple peer experts to evaluate the projects. How to aggregate the evaluation opinions of multiple peer experts is an important issue. With consideration of the experts’ knowledge background and historical evaluation performance, this paper proposes an evidential reasoning approach under two-dimensional frames of discernment to aggregate the evaluation opinions of multiple…

A Novel Method for Conflict Data Fusion Using an Improved Belief Divergence Measure in Dempster–Shafer Evidence Theory
Dempster–Shafer (D-S) evidence theory plays an important role in multisource data fusion. Due to the nature of the Dempster combination rule, there can be counterintuitive results when fusing highly
Data-Driven Public R&D Project Performance Evaluation: Results from China
TLDR
A data-driven method is developed that equips the decision-maker with an automated project performance evaluation tool to make sustainable project decisions and contributes to the body of knowledge in sustainability.
Leveraging Cognitive Diagnosis to Improve Peer Assessment in MOOCs
TLDR
Two new probabilistic graph models are proposed to improve the accuracy of cardinal peer assessments based on the well-accepted cognitive diagnosis technique DINA and outperform state-of-the-art models.

Research project evaluation and selection: an evidential reasoning rule-based method for aggregating peer review information with reliabilities
TLDR
The results show that the ER rule based method can provide consistent and informative support to make informed decisions, and the reliabilities of the review information provided by different experts should be taken into account in a rational research project evaluation and selection process.
Evaluation, ranking and selection of R&D projects by multiple experts: an evidential reasoning rule based approach
TLDR
An ER rule based model taking into consideration experts’ weights and reliabilities is proposed for R&D project selection and validation data show that the evaluation results become more reliable and consistent with reality by using the trained weights and utilities from historical data.
Solving multiple-criteria R&D project selection problems with a data-driven evidential reasoning rule
TLDR
In the data-driven evidential reasoning rule based model, experts play different roles in accordance with their reliabilities which are determined by their previous review track records, and the selection process is made interpretable and fairer.

TLDR
A generalised and extended decision matrix is constructed and rule and utility based techniques are developed for transforming various types of information within the matrix for aggregating attributes via ER that are equivalent with regard to underlying utility and rational in terms of preserving the features of original assessments.
IFS/ER-based large-scale multiattribute group decision-making method by considering expert knowledge structure
TLDR
This study focuses on providing a new LMGDM method by considering expert knowledge structure by establishing a pair of nonlinear optimization models that are extended by the analytical ER rule to make attribute fusion for expert and group fusion for alternative.

An intelligent decision support approach for reviewer assignment in R&D project selection
TLDR
An intelligent decision support approach for reviewer assignment and developing an Assignment Decision Support System (ADSS) is proposed, which uses decision models to determine the best solution of reviewer assignment that maximizes the total expertise level of the reviewers assigned to proposals.
Analytic hierarchy process with fuzzy scoring in evaluating multidisciplinary R&D projects in China
TLDR
Although the AHP-based system developed in China was initially developed for R&D project evaluation, it can be extended to evaluations in other fields such as investment selection in venture capital and in corporate capital budgeting.
