DORA Community Call: Recognizing multilingual scholarly outputs in academic assessment

Please join us for our next community call Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 9:00 – 10:00 AM Eastern (3:00 PM CEST) for a discussion about recognizing and rewarding multilingual scholarly outputs in hiring, promotion, and funding decisions. The call will include a panel discussion featuring:

  • Serhii Nazarovets, The State Scientific and Technical Library of Ukraine
  • Zehra Taskin, Adam Mickiewicz University
  • Thomas HervĂ© Mboa Nkoudou, University of Ottawa

The panel will discuss the value of recognizing multilingual scholarly outputs and the challenges presented by an evaluation system that favors English publications. In addition, we hope to identify strategies to help selection committees, funders, libraries, and institutions recognize multilingual scholarly outputs. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions following the discussion.

While the webinar is free, we ask that participants kindly register in advance.
