As shown by our experience in evaluating small projects (up to 1-2 million) - the implementer (both the CSO and the International Organizations) have neither the resources nor the capacity to make a high quality project evaluation. The result is a game of imitation evaluation:
The customer puts in ToR 20-30 evaluation questions (which he found in online) with no budget, with limit of 15-20 working day (including field mission), ask detailed methodology without access to project documentation etc.
The evaluator taking his standard offer, change keywords and use other tips to imitate tailor-made methodology. Later, as such calls usually for individuals, the evaluator is limit his/her work by interview and desk review without in-depth stakeholders analysis, triangulation etc.
Usually such project has no clear logical model, no any M&E system. So actually there is no any chance to talk seriously about efficiency and effectiveness at all.
But 80% of calls for proposals in developing countries are such.
Anyone familiar with any mechanism for organizing a high-quality evaluation of a small-scale project without profaning the process itself? Are there any publication or tools/standardized methodology solving such case? If not - Is there a demand for such a tool / methodology? Do you know professors who may be interested in such research and development?
I recently got contacted by a certain Editor (name undisclosed for privacy reasons) of a journal, who invited me to submit a paper in
* International Organization of Scientific Invention (IOSI)*.
According to the editor's email "IOSI is an International body which is approved by Govt. of India. It publish(es) scientific research work for more than 75 countries in the area of Microbiology, Biotechnology, Food Science. We will publish your paper in Very Short Period of Review."
While all this sounds ok, the thing that concerned me the most was that the person claimed in the email that,
"All submitted paper may be reviewed within 3 days, we will provide Hard Copy of Paper and Certificates to each Author".
I do not know if it is even possible to arrange such a fast review!!! And even if it issomehow arranged, can one justify the authenticity of the peer review in such a short period?
This discussion thread aims at
1. Getting your opinions / experiences, about this or similar journal editors, who might have contacted you,
2. To create awareness about such journals' legitemacy and how is it effecting the quality of publication in scientific community.
Your views are most welcome.

Is media framing theory suitable for studying the media image for this or no?
How might knowledge sharing—across and within international organizations, governments, government agencies, the private sector, civil society organizations, and other development practitioners—be advanced to create synergies toward the Sustainable Development Goals? Specifically: What are the needs for knowledge partnerships? What strategies should they adopt to meet needs? What issues and challenges can one foresee and how might they be overcome?
- Reflecting on what strategies are being formulated by international organizations to implement the SDGs, which do you think show promise? (In other words: What are the characteristics of an effective strategy? What, in different regions of the world, should be a strategy for knowledge sharing across the different goals of the SDGs? Which of the 17 goals of the SDGs do you think should be the larger object of a knowledge sharing program?)
- How might multi-stakeholder partnerships—across and within international organizations, governments, government agencies, the private sector, civil society organizations, and other development practitioners—be advanced to create synergies toward the SDGs? (In other words: What are the needs for knowledge sharing partnerships? What strategies should multi-stakeholder partnerships adopt to meet needs? What issues and challenges can one foresee and how might they be overcome?
Came across a case of few mortality in a herd of pigs. Post mortem lesions were not typical of CSF. The herd has persistent arthritis problems, Tested the tissue samples for CSFAg by ELISA and got positive result with only a moderate increase in the titre. The animals were vaccinated 6 months back with live vaccine. Is it possible that the vaccination leaves virus in spleen and kidneys which may interfere with Ag detection diagnosis?
I am studying the influence of occupant presence and occupancy density on building energy demand. I look for occupancy schedules (occupants´ presence) in residential buildings in different countries. I have information from different country regulations and organizations, for example, Spain, France, Portugal and ISO( International Organization for Standardization). I would like to find, at list, information regarding Italy and UK.
You can find attached an example, from the spanish regulation, of the information that I look for.
I looked forward to hearing from you.
Especially if it (even remotely) relates to the notion of expertise? To contextualize, the text is supposed to feed into a debate on the proliferation of the so-called experts in international organizations. Thank you so much for any clues!
educational organizations in particular
A recent article from the New York Times (http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/28/the-power-of-failure-2/?_r=0) suggests that failures can be catalysts for innovation and improvement in development. However how do failures weigh in, when we consider wider discourses, relations of power and political operations that cannot be disconnected from development? Are failures symptoms of wider, underlying issues? Or they do they distract us from wider, deeper issues?
And here we are not talking about money. Nowadays, there are many efforts for establishing international networkings. Some of them are supported by international organizations (UN, EU, CEE, USAID, others). The first issue that probably comes to our mind could be "economical resources" but probably this is just the top of the iceberg. Training and formative initiatives could be one of those important tools that could help researchers from developing countries to resolve these other barriers. And then the question comes... which areas could be reinforced?
I research underprivileged empowerment where international organizations sponsoring funds to the underdeveloped countries. After the funds have been received there are changes in the local community in socioeconomic aspects. I want to know how to analyse these changes.
I posit that there are some organizational issues that shouldn't be dealt at the strategic level, especially in complex organizations, for instance conglomerates, but «one level above», that is to say at political level... but I'm having trouble to find a good article where that level is clearly defined. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.
I've read articles from dubious sources across the web about this problem. Most of them claim that the IMF structural adjustment plans (SAPs) lock poor countries into a debt cycle, which results in a decrease in funding for public goods such as education.
Would love to hear some researchers shed light on the consequences of the actions of these three large international organizations.
Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) is a relatively new entity that appeared in the post-Soviet region, which tries to join the neighboring countries into a strong and structured union. But what are its economic prospects and how are the newly established geostrategic conditions going to affect the balances of the region?
In order to explain innovation at the United Nations, I would like to draw from knowledge management theory.
I would like to get in touch with researchers who have done or are currently doing work on border-related issues, particularly on border management, border disputes, and soft borders.
There are many hardworking and value adding NGOs that are embedded in a country with endemic and systemic culture of corruption. Because of the determination to maintain integrity and credibility they are not able to access funds from international donor agencies and international organizations through government channels. At the same time, funds from other sources have significantly declined because of low trust perception of such countries.
