Based on the flow of scientific results, a value-added (VA) index is developed that can, in principle, be used to assign a monetary value to any research result and, by aggregation, on entire academic disciplines or sub-disciplines. The VA-index distributes the value of all applications that embody research to the works of research which the applications directly rely on, and further to the works of research of previous generations which the authors of the immediate reference sources have directly or indirectly made use of. The major contribution of the VA index is to provide a measure of the value of research that is comparable across academic disciplines. To illustrate how the generational accounting approach works, I present a VAbased journal rating and a rating of the most influential recent journal articles in the field of economics.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Hofmeister, Robert</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Measuring the Value of Research : A Generational Accounting Approach</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Hofmeister, Robert</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-02-02T12:30:24Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-02-02T12:30:24Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
