Mandated online RAE CVs Linked to University Eprint Archives

  title={Mandated online RAE CVs Linked to University Eprint Archives},
  author={S. Harnad and L. Carr and Tim Brody and C. Oppenheim},
Being the only country with a national research assessment exercise, the UK is today in a unique position to make a very small procedural change that will generate some very large benefits. The Funding Councils should mandate that in order to be eligible for Research Assessment and funding, all UK research-active university staff must maintain (I) a standardised online RAE-CV, including all designated RAE performance indicators, chief among them being (II… Expand

Open access scientometrics and the UK Research Assessment Exercise
Open Access Scientometrics will provide powerful new means of navigating, evaluating, predicting and analyzing the growing Open Access database, as well as powerful incentives for making it grow faster. Expand
Maximizing university research impact through self-archiving
(1) Universities need to adopt a self-archiving policy -- an extension of their existing "publish or perish" policy to "Publish with maximal impact", and research funding agencies such as NSF and NIH need to encourage self- archiving. Expand
The Open Research Web: A Preview of the Optimal and the Inevitable
Further development of GNU EPrints and Citebase, together with the growing webwide database of Open Access (OA) articles, and the data we will collect and analyse from it, will allow us to do severalExpand
The impact of OAI-based search on access to research journal papers
This paper outlines why institutional and national policies mandating the self-archiving of all funded research output in open access archives are beneficial to researchers, their institutions, funders, and to research itself. Expand
Disseminating research with web CV hyperlinks
The amount of linking to OA publications seems to be much lower than allowed by publishers and journals, suggesting that many opportunities for disseminating full‐text research online are being missed, especially in disciplines without established repositories. Expand
Maximizing Research Impact Through Institutional and National Open-Access Self-Archiving Mandates
No research institution can afford all the journals its researchers may need, so all articles are losing research impact (usage and citations). Articles made “Open Access,” (OA) by self-archivingExpand
Maximizing and Measuring Research Impact Through University and Research-Funder Open-Access Self-Archiving Mandates.
The only institutions approaching 100% self-archiving are those that mandate it, and institutions and funders need to mandate that immediately upon acceptance for publica-tion the author’s final draft must be deposited into the Institutional Repository (IR). Expand
Institutional repositories and research assessment
This study concerns the potential role of institutional repositories in supporting research assessment in universities with specific reference to the Research Assessment Exercises in the UK. After aExpand
Waking OA's “Slumbering Giant”: The University's Mandate To Mandate Open Access
Universities (the universal research-providers) as well as research funders (public and private) are beginning to make it part of their mandates to ensure not only that researchers conduct andExpand
University Performance Evaluation: The Business Of Research
The study examines the impact of national research assessment exercises for the visual arts discipline in a university structure. It encompasses issues of evaluation, benchmarking, performanceExpand


Research Access, Impact and Assessment
The RAE can help hasten the freeing of access to the research literature by mandating that all UK universities self-archive all their annual refereed research in their own eprint archives. TheExpand
The use of an algorithmic approach for the assessment of research quality
This question is looked at via a detailed examination of the returns from four universities for the most recent research assessment exercise and suggests that attempts to derive an algorithm are only likely to be helpful for a limited range of subjects. Expand
The correlation between RAE ratings and citation counts in psychology Technical Report
We counted the citations received in one year (1998) by each staff member in each of 38 university psychology departments in the United Kingdom. We then averaged these counts across individualsExpand
Applying diachronic citation analysis to ongoing research program evaluations
Diachronic versus synchronous citation analysis methods are discussed in relation to research evaluation. Using selected results from an online mid-term evaluation of nine research centers funded byExpand
For Whom the Gate Tolls
All refereed journals will soon be available online; this means that anyone will be able to access them from any networked desk-top, and the literature will all be connected by citation, author, and keyword/subject links, allowing for unheard-of power and ease of access and navigability. Expand
Integrating, Navigating and Analyzing Eprint Archives Through Open Citation Linking (the OpCit Project)
The Los Alamos Eprint Archive (LANL) is a public repository for a growing proportion of the current research literature in Physics. The Open Citation-linking Project (OpCit) is making this resourceExpand
The Correlation between citation counts and the 1992 Research Assessment Exercise Ratings for British Library and Information Science University departments
A citation study was carried out on all 217 academics who teach in UK library and information science schools, and it was found that there is a statistically significant correlation between the numbers of citations received by a department in total, or the average number of citations in the department per academic, and the Research Assessment Exercise rating. Expand
The correlation between citation counts and the 1992 research assessment exercise ratings for British research in genetics, anatomy and archaeology
It is argued that for future Research Assessment Exercises, citation counting should be the primary, but not the only, means of calculating Research Assessment Exercise scores. Expand

An evaluation of Ingwersen's proposed external Web Impact Factor (WIF) for the original use of the Web: the interlinking of academic research shows that four different WIFs do, in fact, correlate with the conventional academic research measures. Expand
Online Archives for Peer-Reviewed Journal Publications
Authors will self-archive their papers, both before and after peer review, in their institutional Eprint Archives, providing open access to all peer-reviewed research output as if it were all in one global archive. Expand
