External review

What does external review mean?

When the ROCKWOOL Foundation Research Unit publishes research reports, they have always been subjected to an external review.


This means that one or more respected, independent experts have reviewed the research, commenting on the content and suggesting changes. The authors have then had the opportunity to incorporate these comments and suggestions into their work.


These experts are never employed by the Foundation, but they do receive a fee for the assignment. This approach ensures both independence and thoroughness.



Position structure


The position structure at the Research Unit mirrors that in the university sector. Before an employee can be awarded a title, his or her publications and professional output are evaluated by an external committee of recognised peers from leading universities, who hold the same level of seniority at their universities as applies to the position in question.
