DORA – an interview with Stephen Curry

Saturday 21 April 2018

DORA (The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment) was founded in 2012 and has garnered thousands of signatories from individuals and organisations. Its main aim is to improve the way in which the quality of research output is evaluated. Stephen Curry, chair of the DORA committee, speaks about the most recent upgrades.

One of the key developments of DORA is that they hired a full-time community manager, Dr. Anna Hatch. Stephen Curry also speaks about the things that DORA has achieved so far. “DORA has been really helpful in re-focussing the conversation on how we do research assessements. We are not out to name and shame organisations that haven’t signed. We want to challenge them to think about the current situation.”
