On Friday 21 March the Dutch minister of Education, Jet Bussemaker, received the new version of the Standard Evaluation Protocol that will be valid from 2015.
The new version of the Standard Evaluation Protocol (SEP) was presented to the minister by the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).
The new SEP will be valid from 2015 through 2021. In the renewed protocol there is less emphasis on the number of publications, and information is added about data, data management and integrity.
The VSNU has a website devoted to the SEP> (in Dutch) and there is an English version of the SEP as well.
