San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) – Elsevier’s view
By Andrew Plume, PhD | Posted on 3 Jun 2013
Elsevier supports those elements of DORA that reflect long known problems with Impact Factors, and in which we have been actively supporting a range of alternatives and best practices. Elsevier is not signing DORA in its entirety, however, as it’s not our place to advocate for positions that are primarily aimed at other partners in the research community. Mendeley is signing DORA on its own.
