22 Jan 2009 - THE: Jonathan Adams, director of Evidence, responds to comments over the recent Company changes
"Jonathan Adams, director of Evidence Ltd., notes that the recent acquisition of the company by Thomson Reuters creates no issues of conflict of interest with regards to the HEFCE REF Pilot. Evidence, he says, is 'developing different methods of constructing bibliometric indicators for the REF, which will be put to REF expert advisory groups' and not comparing citation databases."
