CoARA Constitutive Assembly

ICoRSA will participate in the CoARA Constitutive Assembly which will be held on Thursday, 1 December.

ICoRSA is one of the early signatories of the agreement and as a member is entitled to vote on the following: Governance Documents, Chair of the Steering Board, Members of the Steering Board, Appointment of the Secretariat, Preliminary Work Plan and Budget.

The vision of CoARA is that the assessment of research, researchers and research organisations recognises the diverse outputs, practices and activities that maximise the quality and impact of research. This requires basing assessment primarily on qualitative judgement, for which peer review is central, supported by responsible use of quantitative indicators.
