Reforming Research Assessment


From 7-10 May 2024, the Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA) will host a joint workshop on “Reforming Research Assessment” in Washington, D.C., during the Global Young Academy (GYA) Annual General Meeting and International Conference of Young Scientists.

The workshop event, which is part of the CoARA Boost project, will take place from 13:00 - 15:00 (UTC -4) on 6 May and will examine current research assessment practices that perpetuate a “publish or perish” culture, prioritise quantity over quality, and reward prestige over integrity. Discussants will explore efforts such as the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), the Latin American Forum on Research Assessment (FOLEC-CLACSO), and the Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA), all of which seek reform by promoting openness, integrity, and equity.
