An evaluation of the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) Programme for the Enhancement of Research Information (PERI) was undertaken by three staff members of the Centre for International Development and Training, University of Wolverhampton between January and mid March, 2008. The objectives of this evaluation were to examine the outcomes and potential early impact of PERI activities; the programme's strengths and weaknesses; the effectiveness and efficiency of the PERI programme. According to the findings of this evaluation, INASP still needs to work on ensuring that the distinction between partner/network countries and the associated services is clearly explained within the website and communications with countries in order to manage expectations.
The report presents the evaluation of the first phase of PERI, and makes recommendations for the next phase.
