Thanks God, a simple Summary 1.Research project assessment 2.National research assessment exercise
Project assessment (1/2) Each year All in one month Only electronic submission A personal workspace for each researcher We know all about them (219.144 registered users, with carriers and curricula) We have scientific production of all of them (3.333.615 publications) A catalogue of scientific journal titles (201.903 journals)
Project assessment (2/2) >4.000 project proposals presented every year (56.172 research projects in the last 12 years) >13.000 organizational units involved >6.500 international experts for peer review A ranking is calculated Funds assignment Monitoring the financial data during project life-cycle Collect periodical reports and final statements
Summary 1.Research project assessment 2.National research assessment exercise
national research assessment exercise (1/2) Covers from 3 to 5 years Only the best research products Bibliometric indicators Peer review Good ranking position means more funds and salary increase
First exercise was successfully concluded in 2006 17.329 products were evaluated by 151 panelist, assisted by 6.661 international experts At least 2 blind reviews per product Final ranking calculated by scientific area and by structure A new (bigger!) exercise will start very soon national research assessment exercise (2/2)
interoperability Universities and Research Institutions can exchange data with the National Research Information System via: web services file upload/download OAI-PMH (work in progress)
standards Researchers’ curricula are in Europass format. We are going to use the same format for University professors CVs soon. We are working to provide research projects data according to the CERIF 2008 standard. For publications metadata exchange we use many formats, but our main reference is MODS.
