What does research quality mean? This question becomes important when research is evaluated, but remains largely unanswered, especially regarding the social sciences and humanities (SSH). This report gives an overview on empirical projects that explicitly investigates the notions of research quality of SSH scholars. Such projects are scarce and often not much known, yet are of great importance as only with knowledge on what is to be measured, we can find adequate indicators for research quality.
