Abstract

This article analyses why researchers decide to adopt Research Evaluation Metrics (REMs) as part of their role and also investigate other factors that lead them to adopt some REMs and not others. This research adapts the approach of Rogers (2003 [1962]) and combines qualitative (interview) with quantitative (survey) methodological approaches to analyse two university departments regarding individual researcher adoption, use and opinions of REMs
