Dora Agreement

Since the application of this approach, we have been very successful in identifying and recruiting fantastic faculties, ready and willing to integrate into the UT Southwestern community and launch their research programs. Have successful candidates published in “brand” magazines? Most of them. However, in my 17 years of experience as head of department at the Scripps Research Institute and UT Southwestern, this is not the best project for success. Instead, in keeping with the latest studies (van Dijk et al., 2014; de Bartheld et al., 2015), the best predictor of future success is the candidate`s ability to ask and articulate an important question and stubbornly follow the answer. In addition to their research testimony, seminar and chalk interview, the best evidence of these key attributes is a series of work published both as students and as a post-doc, each of which presents solid progress, published in rigorously evaluated field journals (Journal of Cell Biology, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Journal of Cell Science, Traffic, etc.). This commitment to a deep understanding of fundamental and important biology often leads to the gay discoveries we see published in popular science journals. I consider these publications to be a unique product of good science, never as a priority. DORA represents the San Francisco Statement on Research Evaluation proposed by a group of scientific journal editors and editors at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) on December 16, 2012 in San Francisco, California.

The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) movement began five years ago next month, when a small group of scientists and magazine editors met in December 2012 at the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) meeting in San Francisco. As magazine editors, they were concerned about the scientific community`s obsession with the Journal Impact Factor (JIF), a profoundly erroneous measure of scientific value, which was of disproportionate influence in which papers were deposited. More importantly, as scientists, they were deeply concerned about the unintended consequences of this obsession, the way we communicate our findings, how our young scientists promote their careers within them, and how we assess (as individuals, academic institutions, funding agencies, etc.) the value of our scientific contributions. THE DORA (www.ascb.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/sfdora.pdf) came out of this meeting and a flood of emails in the coming months.
