As the representative of the Dutch universities, VSNU President Karl
Dittrich will today be putting his signature on the San Francisco
Declaration. This international declaration calls on universities,
scientific organisations, public authorities and publishers to evaluate
academic research on quality and social relevance over aspects such as the
reputation of the journal in which the research is published or its Journal
Impact Factor. VSNU President Karl Dittrich: *‘We see signing the San
Francisco Declaration as a positive step in demonstrating that the foremost
metric for judging scientific output must be its merit.’*
