Measures have already been published for tenure trackers in which it was stated that any lower than normal teaching evaluations will not be included in the final assessment, and that employees who have had less time or opportunities for their research can submit a request for postponement of assessment. The Faculty Board is now introducing additional provisions.
Well-being for Tenure Trackers
WHAT CHANGES IN THE RESEARCH CRITERION "PUBLICATIONS"?
In the research criterion "publications", one R&R (revise & resubmit) can count for the calculation of publication points. An R&R indicates that an important part of the work has been done and that the article is likely to be published. You will receive the same points for that R&R as for an accepted publication in the same journal. It does not matter in which round the R&R is. The R&R does not count for future calculation of research time after tenure has been obtained.
WILL MY EXTRA EFFORTS FOR PROVIDING GOOD EDUCATION ALSO BE CONSIDERED?
When assessing the tenure file, the portfolio is explicitly assessed as a whole. With regard to individual aspects, "comply or explain" applies. Excellent performance on certain criteria, such as extra efforts to provide good education during the corona crisis, must also be taken into account.
CAN I MOVE THE TIME OF REVIEW BACKWARDS?
The possibility remains to move the moment of assessment backwards in the sixth year, but without the possibility to have an R&R count towards the necessary publication points.
