|Summary of Intervention(s)|
• In February 2020, University College London’s (UCL) Academic Committee approved a policy statement on the responsible use of bibliometrics.
• The statement identifies core principles which align with DORA, the Leiden Manifesto, and the Metric Tide Report.
• The 12 principles set out a series of recommendations, including, at an individual level taking caution not to compare candidates based on the H-index without taking career stage into context.
• The list of principles are deliberately broad and generic in order to take into account the variation in evaluation practices across disciplines and are not intended as a comprehensive set of rules.
