Evaluation of the results of science and research in the field of “History” in the Czech Republic (2013-2016)
Languages of publication
The author summarizes the development of the system for evaluating science and research in the Czech Republic in recent years, and considers the way this system is applied in the historical research community. It is a specific system of point evaluation of published results closely connected with the amount of financial resources from the state budget granted for the development of the research organization. This model of financing was gradually introduced in the Czech Republic in 2010-2012. In 2013 the evaluation system was significantly adjusted and strengthened according to the “peer review” principle, which gives substantial weight to qualitative criteria. The results of science and research published in the Czech Republic in all fields of science in the years 2013-2015 were evaluated according to this evaluation system called “Metodika13+”, the principles of which have been described in detail by the author. The evaluation was done in the years 2014-2016 with the assumption of moderate extension into the beginning of 2017. No “professional evaluator”, who has not produced any significant scientific results himself, can express his view on the quality of scientific results. All substantial data are publicly accessible, including the actual results, their evaluation in terms of points and the names of the members of the evaluation panel, so that the quality of the work of the evaluation panel can be retrospectively judged by the expert community. In the conclusion of the study, the author gives a brief review of the qualitative division of the published results from the field of “history” in the Czech Republic. He cites specific book titles, which were evaluated by this method as the most important scientific achievements of Czech historiography in the evaluated years.
