Infrastructures as analytical framework for mapping research evaluation landscapes and practices

Åström, Fredrik LU (2016) Materiality and social dynamics of information infrastructures and learning
Abstract (Swedish)
This paper suggests an infrastructure perspective, as suggested by Star and Bowker (2006), as an analytical framework for studying the research evaluation landscape. An infrastructure is suggested to be understood, not as a concrete technology, but as a system of contextual factors including ‘Actors/Stakeholders’, ‘Technical systems’, and ‘Evaluation practices’. How the framework can be operationationalized is exemplified by examples from previous and ongoing research, as well as by identify gaps in current research.
