Doing Research is a unique GDN program that contributes to a better objective assessment of social science research systems in developing countries, to identify gaps that can be addressed through research policy.
GDN is now aiming to scale up the Doing Research program to 40 countries. During this scale up, it is implementing the Doing Research Assessment in 3-5 countries as proof of concept. See details of the kick-off.
Doing Research Assessment is the method used to assess the performance of a social science research system. The methodology is further detailed in the GDN working document on Doing Research Assessments.
