De-emphasizing journal name in researcher assessment at HHMI

A landmark research study is important because of the findings it produced—not because of the journal where it was published. To change what is valued in research and reduce the importance of journal reputation, organizations need to implement policy changes.

Join the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) for an update on the steps we are taking to disentangle journal reputation from researcher assessment. Participants will learn about the progress that has been made so far, our plans for the future, and why we believe it is important to lead by example.

The evolving relationship between scholarly communication and researcher assessment will also be discussed, including the ways that scholar-led publishing practices, such as posting preprints, can reinforce responsible assessment.

The event will take place as a webinar with presentations that will be followed by a moderated Q&A session. All those who are interested in improving the ways that researchers are assessed are invited to register.
