CMCB is a signatory of SF-DORA

At CMCB, we recognise that excellent research can appear in any journal regardless of the journal impact factor or other metric. CMCB is a signatory of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (SF-DORA) and we strive to uphold the principles set out in that declaration.

This means that when we assess candidates to join our centre, we read their papers and judge for ourselves the scientific excellence. We ask that applicants remove any reference to journal impact factors from their CV or other supporting materials when applying to work here. Instead, we prefer applicants to select which papers they feel are their most important and write a short statement explaining why. We also value research outputs besides papers or preprints. For example, reagents, software and hardware that help move science forward are evaluated alongside traditional scientific outputs.

As individuals within CMCB, we argue for its principles during our panel and committee work outside CMCB. Within CMCB, we prefer discussions on manuscripts we are writing to focus on the scientific content rather than on which journal we will submit the paper to.
