Tuesday, October 20, 10:00am - 11:30am
Elizabeth Gadd, Loughborough University, UK
What we reward through recruitment, promotion and tenure processes is not always what we actually value about research activity. This talk will explore how we can pursue value-led evaluations - and how we can persuade senior leaders of their benefits.
Elizabeth (Lizzie) Gadd is a scholarly communications specialist working as a Research Policy Manager (Publications) at Loughborough University, UK. She chairs the INORMS Research Evaluation Working Group, the ARMA Research Evaluation SIG and the LIS-Bibliometrics Forum. She founded The Bibliomagician Blog & was the recipient of the 2020 INORMS Award for Excellence in Research Management Leadership.
She has spent most of her career in libraries and doing research into the rights issues relating to the scholarly activities of UK HE. These include the Jisc-funded ACORN, Rights & Rewards, and RoMEO Projects, the latter of which gave rise to the RoMEO service. She has a PhD on the impact of copyright ownership on scholarly communication and blogs regularly on responsible research evaluation, copyright and open access issues. Elizabeth is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
