David Colquhoun on ‘Should metrics be used to assess research performance?’

David is an astonishingly highly esteemed and energetic firebrand academic who writes a blog dedicated to scientific rigour, integrity and public dissemination. He’s just put up this post presenting a draft submission to the UK HEFCE on the use of metrics and other performance measures in the allocation of funding. You should read it.
