ProAc

Profiling, instead of ranking, academics

Fabio Crameri
Fabio Crameri Bern, CH

Project Overview

Academia currently ranks academics and the ranking is mainly based on one single, flawed number, the h-index. ProAc is a data-based, visual toolbox that allows to profile academics based on not just one, but a selection of elaborate indices. Crucially, this will reduce unnecessary competition between academics and current ranking biases, and support high-quality, instead of high-quantity, research. And, it will provide funding to a keen academic.
