Outlining an analytical framework for mapping research evaluation landscapes

Åström, Fredrik LU (2016) International Conference on Science and Technology IndicatorsInternational Conference on Science and Technology Indicators, 2016 In Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Science and Technology Indicators València (Spain) September 14-16, 2016, 2016 p.462-462
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.
