Bieberians at the Gate?
In this article, the authors discuss the idea that non-philosophers should judge philosophers. As universities face growing demands for academic accountability, philosophers ought to take the lead in exploring what accountability means. Otherwise we may be stuck with Dickens's Mr. Gradgrind. ("Now, what I want is Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts along are wanted in life.") But a philosophical account of accountability will also require redefining the boundaries of what counts as philosophy. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc130189/

Comparative Assessment of Peer Review (CAPR): EU/US workshop on peer review: Assessing "broader impact" in research grant applications
This is the report of a workshop focusing on the use of broader societal impacts criteria as part of the review process at the European Commission. There is both a historical account and some thinking about how 'impact' ought to be incorporated into Horizon 2020 (the funding scheme formerly known as FP8). Since the US NSF is also currently rethinking the details of its merit review process, and since there is an interesting comparison between NSF's and the EC's approaches to impact, the authors have also included a focus on NSF's Broader Impacts Criterion. The workshop was both a research opportunity (under SciSIP grant #0830387) and an effort to use that research to help inform policy for science (in terms of informing peer review models). digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86179/
