"Guidelines for Designing Evaluation Instruments in Development Research"

Strengthening the capacity of researchers and research institutions in conducting development research, in the North as well as in the South, is a priority of the Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences.

One of the Academy’s endeavours is the formulation of guidelines, intended for persons who have to develop instruments for evaluation of research (research projects, researchers, research teams and networks, and scientific publications), and who have to write the corresponding instructions intended for the actual evaluators, i.e. to write a “specific guide”.

The present Guidelines intend to provide a comprehensive guide for the setting-up, adaptation and assessment of evaluation methods with respect to development research. They are not a handbook nor a manual but will, instead, serve as reference for using good practices in the field of evaluation of development research.
