The aim of the project „Peer Review: a field-comparative perspective” is to identify field-specific practices of peer review and to explain field-specific mechanisms of quality assessment. Case studies in six research fields are planned in order to explore the relationship between field-specific assessment practices and the corresponding everyday research practices.
Tasks include participation in the conceptual preparation, conduct and analysis of the planned empirical studies (observations, qualitative interviews, bibliometric analyses, qualitative content analyses). It is possible to develop your own dissertation topic based on the data collected in the empirical studies.
Further information on the project can be obtained from Grit Laudel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
