University of Nottingham UK is a proud signatory of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA). Our university aims to nurture the highest quality research, recognising and valuing the intrinsic merit of research over and above its publication channel, journal metrics, or publisher.
After signing DORA in January 2019, a working group convened to consider how to embed the responsible use of publication metrics as indicators into our policy and practice, resulting in the principles below and a toolkit including the Publication Checklist, training and e-resources.
