Since 1 March 2014, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the credit line “performance evaluation in science,” the project “The Many Faces of academic achievement and performance : “incentives for research and teaching “. The aim of this research project is to develop a set of quantitative and qualitative indicators to measure performance in research and teaching, and to analyse the intended and unintended consequences resulting from performance measures.

The FAceS research team needs the input from the scientific community in order to generate representative data.  Below is a text calling for participation in an on-line questionnaire.

Dear colleagues,

As part of the FAceS project (, the Chair for Strategy and Organization (Prof.Isabell M. Welpe) at the Technische Universität München, Germany, is currently conducting a survey about publication practices and performance measurement in science.

To obtain representative knowledge about publication practices and performance measurements across different countries and disciplines such as physics, we are particularly interested in your assessment and specifications on this topic.

Participation in this survey will take approximately 20 minutes. Participants will be offered the chance to participate in the raffle for an iPad mini. Upon request, we will be happy to send you a summary of the results of the survey.

Please click on the following link (or copy the link into your browser) to access the survey:

We would be very happy if you would participate in our survey and contribute to the success of this study.

Should you have any questions or comments or should you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail (performance-management [dot] lso [dot] wi [at] tum [dot] de).

Best regards and cordial thanks in advance,

Jutta Wollersheim, Isabell Welpe and Stefanie Ringelhan
