Why Bibliometrics Matter for Assessing Quality of Science
Independent Advisory and Evaluation Service
As the CGIAR Research Program 2020 Reviews reach their halfway point, Paolo Sarfatti (CAS Senior Technical Advisor) and Max Rünzel (CAS Evaluation Consultant) explain why bibliometrics matter when it comes to assessing the Quality of Science (QoS) in Research for Development in the second CRP 2020 Review blog series.
We have now completed the first six of the twelve 2020 CRP reviews. Throughout the process, we have made use of the CGIAR Independent Science for Development Council (ISDC)’s Quality of Research for Development (QoR4D) framework that established relevance, scientific credibility, legitimacy, and effectiveness as the key elements of R4D quality [ISDC 2020].
