Reimagining Academic Career Assessment: Stories of innovation and change

Saenen, Bregt et al. (2021) Reimagining Academic Career Assessment: Stories of innovation and change. European Universities Association.  

This report and the accompanying online repository bring together and analyse case studies in responsible academic career assessment. Gathered by EUA, together with the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Europe, the case studies serve as a source of inspiration for universities and other actors looking to improve their academic career assessment practices. 

Following the publication of guidelines and recommendations on more responsible evaluation approaches, such as DORA, the Leiden Manifesto for Research Metrics, and the Metric Tide, more and more institutions have begun to consider how to implement a range of practical changes and innovations in recent years. However, information about the creation and development of new practices in academic career assessment are not always easy to find. 

Collectively, the case studies will further facilitate this “practical turn” toward implementation by providing a structured overview and conceptual clarity on key characteristics and contextual factors. In doing so, the report examines emerging pathways of institutional reform of academic career assessment.
