Maintaining a certain level of quality in research and lectures and measuring this level has become increasingly important in recent years. Due to the diversity of scientific research fields, a general approach is difficult. At the University of Mainz, the Zentrum für Qualitätssicherung und -entwicklung (ZQ, Center for Quality Assurance and Development), takes most important organization of this kind. We talked to Dr. Uwe Schmidt, head of the ZQ, about the role of evaluation and quality management in natural sciences and the humanities, the Bologna Process, and the principles of scientometrics.
