Campbell, David F.J. and Felderer, Bernhard (1999) Empfehlungen zur Evaluation universitärer und außeruniversitärer Forschung in Österreich. Recommendations for the evaluation of university and non-university research in Austria. IHS Political Science Series 66. November 1999. [Working Paper]
In the following paper we present recommendations for the evaluation of university and university-related (“außeruniversitäre”) research in Austria, based on the executive summary of the final report of a recently completed study commissioned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Transport (BMWV). Our challenge is to design a comprehensive evaluation model for Austrian university research, which can be applied systematically on a nationwide scale. A dual evaluation mode is proposed that equally combines two different evaluation concepts: first a monitoring and, second, an external ex post evaluation of university research. Derived from such evaluation results and based on an explicit formula, it should be possible to accredit “research points” to university departments that again allow for consequences with respect to the allocation of resources. In addition, we also develop a comprehensive evaluation model for university-related research that expresses compatibility with university evaluation. Furthermore, we suggest several recommendations concerning the financing of research as well as the research promotion activities of the FWF (Austrian Science Fund).
