Abstract

[In terms of systematic performance evaluation, research in most German universities still represents what might be termed a ‘basic’ state because the recent attempts at evaluating research outputs are so new and lacking in direct consequences that they have not yet affected research performance. Analysing this basic state can provide useful information about the situation that research evaluation systems can be expected to change. In this chapter I report the preliminary results from interviews with academics in five different disciplines in one university in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) that can be deemed to represent the basic state of research that is not yet affected by retrospective research evaluations of any kind.]
