Basic principles of QRiH

The basic principle behind QRiH is to do justice to the specific nature of humanities research and its wide-ranging diversity, among other things by:

  • getting researchers to work with domain panels on formulating quality and relevance criteria
  • creating scope for assessment instruments for diverse types of research outputs, such as books, edited volumes, catalogues, audio-visual products, exhibitions, and so on; such diversity can be made visible by working with the indicators referenced in SEP Table D1,
  • focusing on the relationship between research quality and societal relevance by giving research units the opportunity to draft self-assessment reports as a narrative, and by also listing hybrid research outputs.
