Graham Kendall: Details of Requested Publication


Citation

Kendall, G Journals Rankings: Buyer Beware. Ergon: Bulletin for the UM Academic Community, 4 (2): 2-4, 2012.

This was an invited short paper for the University of Malaya, after presenting at a conference (ISSN: 2180-2122)


Abstract

I was invited to write a short piece following a presentation I gave at the conference on Institutional Perspectives on Evidence-Based Research Evaluation (5-6 July 2012, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur).

Ttitle of Talk: Metric Driven Research: Right or Wrong?

Abstract of Talk: Metric driven research has become increasingly important in recent years and it affects how we are perceived by other institutions, funding bodies, as well the general public. In this talk I will discuss how these broad measures have affected the UK, particularly with regard to the Research Excellence Framework (REF). I will focus on research publications, but briefly mention some of the other measures that are used. I will also present some of my own views as to the benefits and drawbacks of metric research measures and relate them to what I believe it means for Malaysia.
