Following the designation of Hacettepe University as a "Research University" by the Council of Higher Education, monitoring and evaluation of the University's research performance gained a great importance. The "Research Performance Evaluation Office" was established under the Rectorate of Hacettepe University in order to carry out the monitoring and evaluation processes in order to provide the quantitative and the qualitative self-evaluation of university in very different fields of research. Our office, which is currently working under the Scientific Research Projects Coordinatorship, continues its activities in interaction with various units of Hacettepe University in order to measure, evaluate and improve the academic performance of the University.
