Abstract

During the last three decades assessing the performance of the public funded research has become a political issue in most countries. Governments now expect from science maximum efficiency and value for money allocated to science (value for money). Therefore, tools were developed and were implemented to evaluate research performance in universities. This article analysis the research evaluation systems in first - mover counties, UK, Netherlands, Australia and Germany and aims at drawing conclusions about positive and negative effects that the implementation of this systems brings.
