Forwarding you one cool article (among many) from the latest edition of James Butcher’s Journalology newsletter (click here to subscribe: Journalology (ck.page)). This resource is relevant to our longstanding conversation/concern in OSI about how to reform the culture of communication in academia---in part, to reform the mindset that values publishing metrics so highly (which distorts research, research publishing, metrics, career evaluation, etc.). Without reforming this culture, researcher incentives will continue to be misaligned---i.e., their publishing preferences will continue to tend toward maintaining the status quo because it serves their interests best.

 

Announcing Reformscape: a new online tool to explore responsible academic career assessment and drive positive change

For years, the traditional way in which academic careers are assessed has been criticized as being unfair, biased and unfit for purpose. An excessive focus on narrow criteria and publication metrics, with an overreliance on journal impact factors and quantity of output rather than the quality and diversity of research, has left talented people overlooked and held back progress in diversity, equity and inclusion.

Free to use through a user-friendly online portal, Reformscape is a rich, organized dataset bringing together hundreds of real-life examples showing how universities and other academic institutions around the world are bringing in fairer, more responsible and more informative approaches to academic career assessment. Reformscape is populated with policies, action plans and other documents from more than 200 institutions from all over the world, together with trends and expertly curated insights.
