RT. A Journal on Research Policy and Evaluation

Roars Transactions, a Journal on Research Policy and Evaluation (RT), is an electronic open-access,  peer-reviewed journal. RT draws from the experience of www.roars.it (Return on Academic ReSearch), a collective blog (in Italian) dedicated to the monitoring and critical examination of  policy measures and trends in higher education and public research. RT aims at extending the blog’s scope and depth, by soliciting contributions worldwide and of a scholarly nature.

At the same time, RT wishes to maintain and enhance its characteristic of inter-disciplinarity, topical relevance, and openness.

RT complies to the COPE Code of Conduct for Journal Editors.

DOAJ SealRT achieved the DOAJ Seal of Approval for Open Access Journals (the DOAJ Seal), a mark of certification for open access journals, awarded by DOAJ to journals that achieve a high level of openness, adhere to Best Practice and high publishing standards.
