The Administerization of Evaluation: A Misunderstanding of the Academic Evaluation of Philosophy and Social Sciences in China (Abstract)

 

Chen Yao

 

In recent years, academic evaluation in China has shown a tendency of administerization, which leads to emphasizing formal evaluation over content evaluation, hindering scientific research autonomy and normal academic development. The root cause lies in the administrationoriented academic evaluation system, which arouses the enthusiasm of scholars by binding academic evaluation with the allocation of research resources. For the prosperity and development of philosophy and social sciences in China, the party’s leadership over the work of philosophy and social sciences must be strengthened, and we must follow the rules of academic development, actively transform government functions, effectively promote academic democracy to guarantee the autonomy of academic communities, and constantly improve the academic evaluation system of philosophy and social sciences with Chinese characteristics guided by Marxism.
