Reassessing the assessment criteria and techniques traditionally used in evaluating computer science research effectiveness. 

Topics from this paper

How productivity and impact differ across computer science subareas
How to understand evaluation criteria for CS researchers and why it is important to have a clear understanding of what is considered in a given study. Expand
Invisible work in standard bibliometric evaluation of computer science
Most of a computer scientist's production can go uncounted if a standard bibliographic service is used.
To be or not to be cited in computer science
Traditional bias toward journals in citation databases diminishes the perceived value of conference papers and their authors.
Publish now, judge later
A proposal to address the problem of too many conference submissions and not enough time for reviewers to carefully evaluate each one.
Using Community Structure to Categorize Computer Science Conferences: Initial Results
The experiments show that categorizing by exemplars matches well with curated topic classification from the Chinese CCF conference list, and the results also accord with manual judgement which show promise as a practical and robust method for categorizing CS conferences. Expand
Computational support for academic peer review
New tools tackle an age-old practice.
Impact and Productivity of PhD Graduates of Computer Science/Engineering Departments of Hellenic Universities
The study aims at showing the dynamics of research conducted in computer science/engineering departments, and after recognizing weaknesses, to motivate the stakeholders to take actions that will improve competition and excellence. Expand
How healthy are software engineering conferences?
It is suggested that software engineering conferences are healthy, but there are important differences between conferences with a wide scope and those with a more narrow scope, and depending on the chosen health metric, some conferences perform better than others. Expand
How to Write a Good Paper in Computer Science and HowWill It Be Measured by ISI Web of Knowledge
The limits of numerical assessment tools as applied to computer science publications and guidelines on how to write a good paper, where to submit the manuscript, and how to deal with the reviewing process are given. Expand
An Effective End-User Development Approach through Domain-Specific Mashups for Research Impact Evaluation
This thesis presents a novel approach for an effective end-user development, specifically for non-programmers, and introduces a domain-specific approach to mashups that "speaks the language of users", i.e., that is aware of the terminology, concepts, rules, and conventions the user is comfortable with. Expand


Stop the numbers game
A large number of scientists believe that counting papers slows the rate of scientific progress, so it is important to consider the number of papers published in order to estimate the amount of time it takes to write a paper. Expand
