Abstract
In China’s higher education, the unfairly formulated ways of evaluation underscore an urgent need for innovations in academic evaluation. The unfair ways, focusing on privileged publications and relying on a few judges, make it difficult for scholars to publish their academic achievements in privileged publications. Thus unpublished ones should be regarded as a part of their academic achievement. Peer reviewers and committee members are the only judges, who cannot guarantee fairness in their evaluation of manuscripts. But those people who expect intellectual benefit from scholars are most likely to be serious in judging the academic value of the scholars’ achievements. Therefore college students should be treated as the judges of scholars’ academic achievements. It would be a good measure to take against the process of commercialization in China’s higher education if we could uncage the issue of academic evaluation from the issue of publication. Also, it would be good for both college students and teachers if we invited college students to take part in academic evaluations.
