|Written by GEORGE LAZAROIU|
ABSTRACT. Cahn says that reliable evaluators do not indulge in captious criticism or inordinate praise. Wall notes that a journal’s ranking is a good indicator of the research quality of individual papers in the journal. Chapron and Husté contend that decisions in research management are often driven by metrics ranking research quality. Hix states that the content of scientific journals is determined by the subjective judegments of journal editors and article reviewers. Scott holds that academic freedom protects those whose thinking challenges orthodoxy. (pp. 130–133)
