Academic profiling, instead of ranking, with ProAc

  • 1.


Academia evaluation is currently done by ranking academics, mainly on the basis on one single, flawed number, the h-index. ProAc (, a data-based, visual toolbox that allows to profile academics based on not just one, but a selection of elaborate metrics. Crucially, this will reduce unnecessary competition between academics and current ranking biases, and foster high-quality, instead of high-quantity, research.


ProAc is a pro-bono effort. Any support is welcome. – Fabio
