Valued outcome

In the context of a researcher’s activities, there are four types of valued outcomes: Innovation, productivity, impact and recognition. These are the driving forces in a researcherís career progression. Even though there are four types of valued outcomes, they are very much linked. For example, the evidence of a scientific researcherís innovation, impact and recognition is in her/his productivity; the recognition may result from the impact and/or the innovation. RELATED TERM.
