Research Evaluation for the Social Sciences and the Humanities RESSH 2015

The EvalHum Initiative is pleased to open the call for papers for its first international conference on Research Evaluation in the Social Sciences and the Humanities (RESSH), to be held at the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme en Bretagne in Rennes, France, from the 4th to 6th June 2015.

This major conference follows a highly successful international workshop on Quality in Humanities Research held in Rennes in June 2014, as part of the QualiSHS project, supported by the French network of Humanities Institutes, the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme, as well as a series of meetings held within the context of the EvalHum Initiative. The aim of this event is to bring together a wide range of researchers and stakeholders interested in questions of research evaluation and the societal impact of the Social Sciences and the Humanities (SSH).

Evalhum is an open initiative, aiming at promoting the study of SSH research and increasing its visibility among scholars of other fields and disciplines, the lay public and stakeholders and decision makers. Evaluation appears as an interesting tool to achieve this.
