The qualitative future of research evaluation
Science and Public Policy, 2007, vol. 34, issue 8, 585-597
Science, technology and innovation (STI) policy aimed at technological advance, international competitiveness and wealth creation underpins the regulation of publicly funded research. Familiar quantitative evaluative ‘metrics’ fit snugly with these economic objectives. A re-imagined STI policy embraces wider intellectual, social, cultural, environmental and economic returns, using qualitative measures and processes to capture research outcomes.
