External Evaluation of Research Production

Research activities in the field of Social Sciences and Humanities (SHH) in Lithuania are mainly carried out by the public research sector.

Since 2009, the Research Council of Lithuania has been responsible for the evaluation of higher education and research institutions’ data of scientific production. Evaluation is performed every three years and the scores of evaluation are used for allocation of budget funding for state institutions.

In 2012 the evaluation of scientific production by the fields of sciences for the period of 2009–2011 was conducted. According to the results of evolution, the most productive higher education and research institutions in the field of SHH could be identified. The information of the state research and higher education institutions (including EHU) on research and research related activities is provided by MOSTA in the annual country reports.
