The workshop "Research Evaluation, Metrics and Open Access in the Humanities" is organised by the Coimbra-Group. It takes place in Trintiy College in Dublin on 18.-20. September 2008.
The workshop is aimed at Arts and Humanities researchers, Deans of Research, Librarians, research group leaders and policy makers and has the following objectives: To compare established and inoovate methods and models of research evaluation and assess their appropriateness for the Arts and humanities sector; to put recent initiatives like the ERIH or the reform of the UK RAE in the larger context of research evaluation and benchmarking in the Arts and Humanities; to assess the increasing impact of bibliometrical approaches and Open Access policies on the Arts and Humanities sector; to get input from various experts like theoreticians, national and international policy-makers, practitioners, advocates and sceptics and to stimulate an informed and many-sided debate that allows both researchers and policy makers to position themselves towards current developments and play an active part in shaping future developments.
