We analyzed the scientific evaluation systems from 19 Latin American countries for developing a general evaluation model. We compared this model with bibliometric, economic and educational indicators, confirming the importance of supporting science, research, education and innovation
Abstract: This article analyzes the importance of scientific evaluation in Latin America, by identifying the institutions regulating it in each country, reviewing their strategic objectives for recognizing researchers and analyzing the use of diverse evaluation criteria. From a documentary analysis of the models for evaluating researchers in 19 countries, we unified the activities and products that are considered in these countries and we developed a general model for evaluating researchers, which consists of six dimensions and 39 criteria that allow characterizing the ways in which researchers’ activities are evaluated in the region. Finally, we compared the model’s criteria with data from bibliometric, economic and educational indicators.

I put together a video we shot in Peru with some notes I took when we spoke in order to publish ‘Open science, open access and Latin America: a short conversation with Jon Tennant’, published as a tribute to him, the smartest ideas are his and as he would say: “it’s published on #OpenAccess, duh!”
