|Summary of Intervention(s)|
• In 2017, The University of Bath’s Senate approved Principles of Research Assessment and Management, a statement which set out a Code of Practice to be followed throughout the University.
• Developed by a specially commissioned ‘Task and Finish Group’, the statement included a number of principles relating to responsible uses of quantitative metrics, based on the Leiden Manifesto and the Metric Tide Report.
• The seven principles state that research assessment and management at the University of Bath is:
• Centered on expert judgement; set in the broader environment; based on reliable data; tailored – meaning one size does not fit all; transparent; and reportable to the Pro-Vice Chancellor for research, should practices fall below standards articulated in the principles.
• The next step for the University is a plan to review practices for the assessments of individual academic staff and researchers.
