San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment posted

Scientists, journal editors and publishers, scholarly societies, and research funders across many scientific disciplines have posted an international declaration calling on the world scientific community to eliminate the dominant role of the journal impact factor (JIF) in evaluating research for funding, hiring, promotion, or institutional effectiveness. The EMS is among the signing organisations. Also individuals can sign.
