• Qualitätsentwicklungen in der Wissenschaft

    Quantitative research on the science sector

    The science sector has been acquiring great significance for more and more areas of our society. This makes it all the more important for the science system to be structured and funded as advantageously as possible. To an increasing degree, questions regarding the quality and productivity of science and research are being addressed with the help of indicators from which information about quality, the factors that define it, and the factors that bring it about can be derived. One aim of the funding line "Quantitative research on the science sector" is to make even better use of such indicators' value for research on the science system – and, in the process, to develop new indicators where appropriate.

    Research data for science

    Starting right away, the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW) is making survey data available via its new research-data centre. The data are thus available to researchers for further studies.

    The survey data include the DZHW Panel Study of School Leavers with a Higher Education Entrance Qualification, the DZHW Graduate Panel, the DZHW German Student Social Survey and the DZHW Panel Study of PhD holders (Promoviertenpanel). The database available overall will continue to grow in the coming months. All data are provided as Scientific Use Files (SUF) or Campus Use Files (CUF). The establishment of the DZHW's research-data centre has been supported with funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
