Abstract

Quantitative assessment of the quality of scientific activity occupies a significant place in the implementation of innovative developments. As part of the study, the authors proposed a method of expert quantitative evaluation of the quality  of dissertations of  doctors of philosophy on  the  example of  the  specialty  Geodesy and  Land Management, which proposes to determine the properties of the dissertation, develop an evaluation scale, quantify each property and calculate an integrated indicator, based on which the conclusion of the dissertation. Modern mobile computing tools allow you to create a mobile application for gadgets of experts, members of specialized scientific councils, and in real time (in the process of conducting a professional seminar and defending a dissertation) to quantify the quality of the dissertation. Gadgets of two reviewers, two opponents, the chairman of the specialized scientific council, and the scientific secretary are elements of the generalized scheme of collecting and integrating expert assessments on the quality of the dissertation performed for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The gadget of the scientific secretary is a server and is endowed with functions of transfer of information on an estimation on system of support of educational processes of department on which special page the corresponding estimations of quality of dissertations can be placed. The proposed letter assessing the quality of the dissertation consists of three parts: the first is information about the expert, the second is a system of sign-numerical scales that allow in the usual form for research and teaching staff to assess individual features of the dissertation, the third may contain specific proposals of the expert. A generalized scheme for collecting and integrating expert assessments in real time using mobile technologies has also been developed. An example of approbation of the proposed method is given. The boundaries of productive and unproductive intervals of the sign-numerical scale are considered. The proposed method meets modern requirements for digitalization. It allows you to determine in real time a quantitative indicator of the quality of research conducted by the applicant, which in turn ranks dissertations and makes them attractive to investors, which will develop promising areas of research and accelerate scientific and technological progress. The given examples of realization of a method based on theories close to human psychology – the theory of usefulness, the psychological theory of decision-making, and also wide experience of estimation of dissertation will allow to make a certain contribution to experimental researches of the organization of dissertations for the degree of doctor of philosophy.
