Applying the Snowball Metrics Framework; the new Recipe-Book

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

Snowball Metrics are designed to facilitate cross-institutional benchmarking globally by ensuring that research management information can be compared with confidence.

In agreeing a set of robust and consistent definitions for tried-and-tested Snowball Metrics across the entire spectrum of research activities, higher education institutions are establishing a trusted and reliable foundation for benchmarking and evidence-based
