Summary:

"Birkbeck has joined other world-leading institutions in signing the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).

Under the terms of the declaration, Birkbeck will commit to not using journal-based metrics, such as journal impact factors or brand name, in the hiring and promotion of academic staff. This is designed to reassure researchers that what matters is the quality of their work and not the venue in which it happens to be published."
