GRANELL ZAFRA, Ximo. Evaluating Research: assessment criteria in Humanities and the profession of Translation and Interpretation. Investig. bibl [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.66, pp.57-78. ISSN 2448-8321.

This paper examines the criteria used to assess the quality of research productivity in the Humanities with the aim of testing how these gauges are applied to the field of Translation and Interpretation. Researchers first made an analysis of the assessment criteria in use in ANECA and CNEAI, the agencies charged with evaluating the scientific production of scholars in Spain. The central problem of applying such criteria to Humanities subject areas stems from using quality assessment indicators designed to measure the scientific productivity largely focused on publications in journals listed in specific indexes and databases. The study aims to gain further insights into the problems arising from this assessment approach to the field of Translation and Interpretation and to propose alternatives to increase its visibility.

Keywords : Research Evaluation; Assessment Criteria; Scientific Production; Translation and Interpretation Research; Quality Indicators.
