Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This excellent book fills a glaring gap in literature and is packed full of research into researcher and university performance assessment. It takes a no-holds-barred approach to investigating and teasing apart the different methods for research assessment, showing the perils and pitfalls of each and just how shaky the foundations for assessment really are. The case studies of Britain, Japan and New Zealand are particularly illuminating. The book is a must read for those subject to the ever-present regulation of publishing and research activity through peer-review and other methods of triage. It should be on the desk of every university Vice-Chancellor and President, as well as all tertiary education and research policy makers., Robin Gauld, Professor of Health Policy, University of Otago Medical School, New Zealand
