Credit where it's due. Just a matter of fairness?

Jan 09, 2023 | 06:00 PM - 07:30 PM

A panel discussion at the Weizenbaum Institute in Berlin.

The recognition of scientific activity is an integral condition for the advancement of academic careers. Criterions for assessing research and researchers are under debate with the intention of creating a fair, transparent, and holistic system for evaluation that levels out biases regarding status, gender, geography and others. To this day, however, the key criterion for assessment and promotion in academia are publications.

This panel will debate the various aspects of crediting in academia ranging from the promotion of young researchers, the equity of activities central to the functioning of academia, and the effects that result from crediting or non-crediting on an individual as well as systemic level. It will furthermore discuss already existing initiatives to promote crediting and steps to take in order to widen their dissemination.
