Library Research Support: Responsible Metrics

Durham University’s library created guidance for researchers and research managers about the responsible use of metrics, research assessment, and the University’s policy on responsible use of metrics.

Responsible Use of Metrics Policy

In this policy on the responsible use of metrics, Durham University states that it is a signatory of DORA and outlines the scope and principles for use of the policy. The policy outlines the responsibilities of the university (e.g., use metrics transparently, with caution, and appropriately) and the responsibilities of the staff (e.g., using metrics responsibly and with training).

Application and Consistency of Approach in the Use of Performance Metrics

This is a 2015 review from Imperial College London on the Application and Consistency of Approach in the Use of Performance Metrics. This review enshrined the principle that research activities (e.g., research, teaching, mentoring and citizenship) should all be recognized in an evidence-based way in hiring and promotion decisions at Imperial.
