INORMS Research Evaluation Group releases guide to SCOPE Framework for responsible research evaluation -

The International Network of Research Management Societies (INORMS) Research Evaluation Group (REG) has released an 18-page guide to their framework for responsible research evaluation called SCOPE, which has been designed by Emerald Publishing.

Established in 2018, the INORMS REG has been working to better understand and develop best practices in responsible research evaluation with the aim of providing practitioners and senior leaders the tools they need to effectively and responsibly evaluate research. The SCOPE Framework for responsible research evaluation resulted from their work.

Over the past year the Group has partnered with a range of funders, institutions and publishers to apply SCOPE to a series of real-life evaluation problems with the aim of testing the model. The guide draws on the learnings of these explorations, many of which have been included as case studies. The aim of the guide is to assist any organization seeking to design a responsible research evaluation. It was designed by their publishing partner, Emerald Publishing, and is now available as an open resource under a CC-BY licence.

This content is available online, including one-page summaries in various languages, and is available for no charge. In addition to the SCOPE guide, additional materials have been developed including fuller case studies using the framework from a variety of international contexts including research universities, publishing companies, and funding agencies.
