Measures of quality and impact in publicly-funded humanities, arts and social sciences research

Social issues Humanities Arts and Social Science (HASS) Arts Research impact Australia

For decades, researchers in HASS have endured a funding system that assesses their work through a narrow prism of quantity: How many papers? How much grant money? How many research students? This project set out to find a fairer way to evaluate research, by focusing on the quality and impact of the diverse outputs of HASS research, such as books, performances, reports to government, films, libretti and professional advice.
