Initiated by RISe, the Responsible Research Assessment Principles of the University of Groningen have been published following several consultation rounds. The document is a distillation of best practices in metrics-based research assessment, created to guide the appropriate use of research metrics at the University of Groningen and to promote best practices when conducting any form of research assessment, especially when it deals with and affects individual researchers.
They are intended for all UG staff members, both academic and support staff, within faculties and in central departments, that are involved in the assessment of researchers, research proposals or research units. The principles outline the fundamentals of responsible research assessment for any UG member involved in its practice.
The principles outlined below are aligned with The Leiden Manifesto and San Francisco Declaration on research assessment (DORA), Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment (CoARA), Position paper of the national programme for Recognition & Rewards, Strategy Evaluation Protocol (SEP) 2021-2027, the Groningen Research Assessment Protocol (GRAP) 2021, as well as the University of Groningen Strategic Plan 2021-2026.
In co-creating this document, RISe was assisted by its own Advisory Board, as well as the University Committee for Academic Practice (UCW), UG Expert Network for Research Analytics (ENRA), HR, Young Academy Groningen (YAG), and the Recognition and Rewards Workgroup which have all provided valuable input and feedback.
