CALL FOR PAPERS “DORA et al.: Global movements against ‘impactitis’ and ‘evaluitis’, Terje Tüür-Fröhlich

A growing number of learned societies, journals, scientific institutions and scientists/ scholars argue and campaign against the ‘almighty‘ journal impact factor, produced by the North-American for-profit corporation Thomson Reuters. The most famous initiative of protest and recommendations is named DORA, The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment. Worldwide more and more oppositional action groups of scientists/scholars, librarians, journals, universities, research funds and scientific associations stand up against university rankings. h-Index-rankings and other forms of ‘evaluitis’ and ‘impactitis’ in neoliberal “audit cultures”. The critics, often from cultural and social sciences, emphasize the erroneous and biased nature of quantitative evaluation procedures and their negative effects on scientific personnel (especially early career scientists) and scientific development, especially the discrimination of cultural and social sciences.

In this ad-hoc-group we want to discuss the quantitative evaluation practices and their effects on social science scholars, journals, institutions and strategies to fight against.”
