Assessing research : the researchers' view by Steven Wooding( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, prepared for and funded by the Joint Funding Bodies' Review of Research Assessment, presents findings from a series of nine facilitated workshops held with academics and research managers across the United Kingdom (UK) in December 2002. The objective of the workshops was to investigate views of research quality and attitudes towards different models of research assessment. The report outlines the recurring themes and issues raised by the 142 participants in the workshops. The participants, academics and research managers, represented over one third of the 173 institutions that submitted to the Research Assessment Exercise in 2001. This report will be of interest to those concerned with research assessment and evaluation in academic research, both practitioners and policy makers. In the first workshop task, participants considered the characteristics of high quality research and how it should be assessed. In the second task, participants discussed the strengths and weaknesses of four approaches to research assessment: Expert Review, Algorithms, Historical Ratings, and Self Assessment. In the remaining two tasks, participants were asked to design their ideal assessment system, basing it on one of the approaches examined in Task 2. They then considered how their system would be implemented, what its weak points might be, and how its use would change research culture in UK higher education. The overwhelming majority of the workshop participants felt that research should be assessed using a system based on peer review by subject-based panels. Of the 29 systems designed, 25 were based on Expert Review. The participants also indicated that these panels should be informed by metrics and self-assessment, with some input from research users. The first volume of this report describes the methodology and details the findings of the workshops. The second volume contains additional source data. (66 tables, 1 figure)

Getting the evidence : using research in policy making( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of a value for money examination of how government departments commission research and how well that research is being used to improve service delivery and develop policies. The aims of the study were to assess how government departments are procuring research against the background of the Office of Science and Technology's programme of rolling reviews of department research, as recommended in the "Cross-Cutting Review of Science and Research" and in the government's science strategy, "Investing in Innovation."
Complex trauma research in the UK : a rapid review of the funding landscape by Molly Morgan Jones( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the request of the English Department of Health, a rapid review of research funding in the field of complex trauma in the UK is needed. The information gathered will feed into ongoing strategic discussions between DH and the Ministry of Defence (MoD). RAND Europe will map the research landscape in the UK, with a focus on areas of excellence and the nature of funding (public and private), conduct a series of interviews with leading experts, and undertake a strategic assessment of the wider state of research in this area. A brief assessment of the international landscape will also be provided to assist in the identification of gaps and overlaps. The report draws several conclusions, the most notable of which is that complex trauma research is arguably a 'niche' and 'orphan' area of research in the UK with approximately £15m of funding per annum. The UK lacks capacity and capability in several areas of complex trauma research, though individual research fields sectors within complex trauma (i.e. regenerative medicine or orthopaedic research) are strong. Complex trauma research in the UK could benefit from better integration between military and civilian sectors to maximise synergies and research strengths in each
Health research evaluation frameworks : an international comparison by Philipp-Bastian Brutscher( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is based upon, and summarizes findings from eight research evaluation frameworks in use in the UK, Sweden, the US, the Netherlands, in Canada, and elsewhere. This report identifies and discusses four rationales for research evaluation. It argues that research evaluation (if well designed and implemented) provides the ability to: 1. Hold researchers, funding bodies and/or policy-makers better accountable for their action; 2. Steer research into a desired direction; 3. Signal ability on the part of researchers (for example to show that they are worth funding); and 4. Provide input into the research management process (helping to improve strategy definition, etc)
Investigating time lags and attribution in the translation of cancer research : a case study approach by Susan Guthrie( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2012, RAND Europe and the Health Economics Research Group (Brunel University) were commissioned by the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, the National Institute for Health Research and the Academy of Medical Science to conduct a study of the returns to the public/charitable investment in cancer-related research. This study built on previous work published in the 2008 'What's it worth?' report that estimated the economic returns to medical research in terms of spillover benefits and health gain. The 2008 study was extensively quoted and cited as a clear justification for the economic importance of medical research and appears to have played a role in achieving the protection of the medical science budget in the recent public expenditure cuts. This cancer study used a similar approach to that used in the previous study, but with some methodological developments. One of the methodological developments was the inclusion of case studies to examine the validity and variability of the estimates on elapsed time between funding and health gains, and the amount of health gains that can be attributed to UK research. This report provides the full text of the five case studies conducted as well as some discussion of observations emerging across the case study set

Right time for a baby?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The number of women in the UK giving birth in their 40s has doubled in the last ten years. This programme looks at the reasons for this and at the risks involved in delaying motherhood. We meet Cheryl Small, 36, as she is about to give birth to her first child and 19-year-old Ashleigh Thomas Epsley as she gives birth. Bill Ledger, leading infertility expert, talks about late pregnancies. We also hear from Linda Towse who is having infertility treatment in her 40s, and Helen Whysall who has successfully given birth to two children since age 38. Interspersed with the stories reporter Kate Silverton describes her own feelings about whether or not to have children now she's 35
A rapid review of the Greek research and development system by Jonathan Grant( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs commissioned RAND Europe to undertake a rapid review of the Greek research and development (R&D) system. This report was commissioned to identify the scope for reform and improvement within the Greek R&D system. This review is based on a SWOT analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats relating to the Greek research system. The analysis was informed by expert interviews, workshops with the Research Centres' leadership, document and literature review, review of external evaluations undertaken in 2005, desk-based research and a bibliometric analysis. Based on our analysis we make two key observations: (1) The Greek R&D system is in need of reform, which should begin in the near future. The SWOT analysis identified a number of shortcomings in the current system that need to be addressed. A clear message coming from our workshops is that 'doing nothing is not an option'. There is a widely held view that the threats to the system are significant and imminent. (2) A tangible and realistic reform agenda can be formulated. Based on the SWOT analysis, we outline a blueprint for a future strategy for the R&D system, including a set of underlying principles and seven 'ideas' to be considered in putting together an agenda for reform
