Abstract

As a first step in developing a more effective and robust approach to faculty research performance assessment, this study analyzed the existing faculty research assessment methods by comparing Korean universities' research evaluation standards, National Research Foundation of Korea's (KRF) standard for assessing research proposals, and various bibliometric measures. The study data included research evaluation standards of KRF along with 27 Korean universities with Library and Information Science (LIS) department, and the publication data of 183 LIS faculties in Korean universities from 2001 to 2015, which consisted of 3,863 papers 16,978 citations. After the comparative analysis of research evaluation standards, the study examined the rankings of institutions and faculty produced by applying the collected standards and bibliometric metrics to the publication data. The study showed that Korean university standards for research evaluation, which aim to consider both productivity and impact of faculty research, differ from similar bibliometric measures such as h-index, and the difference could significantly impact the assessment of faculty research performance.

본 연구는 보다 효율적이고 균일하게 교원의 연구업적을 평가하기 위한 기초 연구로서, 현재 국내 대학의 교원업적평가 기준과 한국연구재단의 연구업적평가기준, 그리고 여러 계량서지학 지표를 비교하여 국내의 교원연구업적평가 방식을 분석하였다. 본 연구를 진행하기 위하여 국내 대학 27곳의 교원업적평가기준과 한국연구재단 연구업적평가기준을 수집하였으며, 183명의 국내 문헌정보학과 교수의 2001년부터 2015년 사이 발표된 학술논문 3,863편과 16,978건의 인용을 수집하였다. 이를 토대로 우선 현재 시행중인 국내 대학의 연구업적평가지표들을 비교 한 후, 대학지표들과 저자기여도 산정식을 가중한 계량서지학적 지표들을 수집한 데이터에 적용하여 산출한 저자와 대학별 순위들을 분석하였다. 국내 대학의 연구업적평가지표는 연구업적의 생산성과 영향성을 고루 평가하고자 하였으나, h-index처럼 이와 유사한 계량서 지학 지표와 다른 평가 결과를 나타냄으로써, 평가지표가 평가결과에 각기 다른 영향을 미칠 수 있음을 발견하였다.
