Wissenschaftliches Publizieren als Grundlage und Gestaltungsfeld der Wissenschaftsbewertung


Academic publishing represents one of the core functions of scientific activity and thus of the research system. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is committed to the adequate communication of research results and the maintenance of a functioning publication system as a basic requirement of the research system. Ensuring that academic publishing serves foremost the purposes of publicising, quality review and documenting scientific findings should be an essential goal of responsible science administration and promotion. The position paper therefore analyses the central background of the current situation in scientific publishing, identifies challenges and points out possible fields of action. With this positioning, the DFG contributes to the further development of the publication system in a way that is appropriate for science and research.
