Performance Indicators Based on Current Research Information Systems

This talk outlines the Danish experiences of building a national system for research assessment based on harvested metadata from the universities' Current Research Information Systems and Institutional Repositories. In Denmark, the universities' research management and publication management systems are integrated. The talk will touch upon the challenges involved in deducing research quality/performance indicators from centrally harvested metadata. Also the talk will touch upon the Open Access aspect and impact of such a system. Is transparent and systematic evaluation of research related to the open access and transparency of its results?
