Research effectivity of Slovak universities: Quantitative analysis of trends 2008 – 2017
Languages of publication
The paper deals with the research effectivity of Slovak public universities during ten years period (2008 – 2017). Through non-parametric analysis of trends and mixed-effects model with multivariate t-distribution, trends and differences are analysed in detail. The analytical calculations are focused on properly identifying both monotonic trends and change points in the research effectivity. Differences in research effectivity are identified and discussed. The analysis shows that only eight out of 20 Slovak public universities display long-term research effectivity, and 12 out of 20 are ineffective in research in the long run, including 5 with extremely low and/or worsening research effectivity. Conversely, some universities display positive long-term trend. In conclusion, the paper also points out the difficulty of long-term achieving ongoing research effectivity due to the non-systematic and abrupt changes of funding principles from Slovak government.
