PAGEPress Publications signs Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA)
PAGEPress agreed and accepted the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) as part of a movement towards responsible use of research metrics.
The principles of DORA align with our Open Access philosophy and continuing behaviors towards new, improved metrics, to primarily recognize authors’ contributions. By signing up to DORA, we want to help improve the way the quality of research is weighed and expand the range of tools to better account for a variety of research outputs.
The recommendation to sign DORA at PAGEPress was made by its CEO, Michele Moscato, who engaged himself since the foundation of PAGEPress, to unlock knowledge and make the results of academic research available to the international community, strongly believing in a culture where research merit is assessed by the quality of the work and not by the title of the Journal where it is published.
