Description

Bibliometric approaches in research evaluation have hitherto mainly focused on natural and life sciences. Recently, concepts and methods for measuring research quality in social sciences and the humanities have come under scrutiny in several countries.
The scientific conference “Research Quality in the Humanities: Towards Criteria and Procedures for Evaluating Research” will analyze and discuss these recent developments in depth. It will take place on October 27th and 28th 2010 at the University of Zurich and is open to the interested public. The conference is part of the project "Mesurer les performances de la recherche" funded by the Rectors’ Conference of the Swiss Universities (CRUS).
The discussion of controversial issues related to the topic will be incited by thematic presentations and discussions by renowned experts in the field. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Zurich on October 27th and 28th 2010 for an inspired and international exchange of experiences and research results.
