The INORMS Research Evaluation Working Group’s two work-packages

The INORMS Research Evaluation Working Group’s two work-packages are now nearing completion and we have had a lot of positive feedback about our work.  Of particular interest has been the development of the SCOPE model – a five stage process for evaluating responsibly. We are now keen to understand how this process is being used and by whom, so we can share case studies with the wider community and build on this work.  To this end, if you’re using the SCOPE model in any way – for training, for assessing existing evaluations or developing new ones, we’d really love to hear from you!  Similarly, if you’re not yet using it, but would like to provide a comment on its value or how you see it being used, do get in touch.

You may either respond to, or directly to sub-group leader, Laura Himanen (TAU)

We look forward to hearing from you!

A webinar from the INORMS Research Evaluation Working Group: SCOPE: A five-step process for evaluating responsibly

The International Network of Research Management Societies (INORMS) established the Research Evaluation Working Group in 2018 to consider how to best ensure that research evaluation is meaningful, responsible and effective. The Working Group is truly global, it has members from all continents, with the exception of Antarctica!

The Research Evaluation Working Group invites research managers and other research evaluation practitioners involved in planning, implementing and interpreting research evaluations to a webinar on ‘SCOPE’ – a five step process for evaluating responsibly.

The webinar will be held on Monday 20th April 2020 at 1-2 pm BST [In Norway at 2-3 pm]

San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), the Leiden Manifesto and the Metric Tide give the Higher Education sector a framework for evaluating research responsibly. However, practitioners who plan and organize evaluations may still be left asking “now what?”. How do we actually do research evaluation responsibly?

The INORMS Research Evaluation Working Group has developed a five-stage process for evaluating responsibly, that may answer that question! The process is called ‘SCOPE’.This webinar presents the SCOPE model in detail and provides a practical framework for research managers, and others, seeking to conduct responsible research evaluations.

Register for the webinar

The webinar can host up to 150 participants. All who register will receive the link to the webinar, and the first 150 to join the webinar can attend live. A recording of the webinar will be sent to all who register.

Hope you can join us!
