Acabo de firmar mi adherencia a la San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment DORA- http://am.ascb.org/dora/
Por ello como investigador, me comprometo a:
1. Do not use journal-based metrics, such as Journal Impact Factors, as a
surrogate measure of the quality of individual research articles, to assess an
individual scientist’s contributions, or in hiring, promotion, or funding decisions.
15. When involved in committees making decisions about funding, hiring, tenure, or
promotion, make assessments based on scientific content rather than publication
16. Wherever appropriate, cite primary literature in which observations are first
reported rather than reviews in order to give credit where credit is due.
17. Use a range of article metrics and indicators on personal/supporting statements,
as evidence of the impact of individual published articles and other research
18. Challenge research assessment practices that rely inappropriately on Journal
Impact Factors and promote and teach best practice that focuses on the value
and influence of specific research outputs.
Y, como editor de la revista WPOM-Working Papers on Operations Management me comprometo a:
6. Greatly reduce emphasis on the journal impact factor as a promotional tool,
ideally by ceasing to promote the impact factor or by presenting the metric in the
context of a variety of journal-based metrics (e.g., 5-year impact factor,
EigenFactor , SCImago , h-index, editorial and publication times, etc.) that
provide a richer view of journal performance.
7. Make available a range of article-level metrics to encourage a shift toward
assessment based on the scientific content of an article rather than publication
metrics of the journal in which it was published.
8. Encourage responsible authorship practices and the provision of information
about the specific contributions of each author.
9. Whether a journal is open-access or subscription-based, remove all reuse
limitations on reference lists in research articles and make them available under
the Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication .
10. Remove or reduce the constraints on the number of references in research
articles, and, where appropriate, mandate the citation of primary literature in
favor of reviews in order to give credit to the group(s) who first reported a finding
