Abstract

The negative consequences of relying too heavily on metrics to assess research quality are well known, potentially fostering practices harmful to scientific research such as p-hacking, salami science, or selective reporting. The "flourish or perish" culture defined by these metrics in turn drives the system of career advancement in academia, a system that empirical evidence has shown to be problematic and which fails to adequately take societal and broader impact into account. To address this systemic problem, Florian Naudet, John P. A. Ioannidis, Frank Miedema, Ioana A. Cristea, Steven N. Goodman and David Moher present six principles for assessing scientists for hiring, promotion, and tenure.
