Ministerial Decree n. 998/01-08-2023

SECS-P/04 is a sector to which bibliometric indicators of scientific activity do not apply.
In the VQR, the evaluation of the products of history of economic thought is carried out exclusively through peer review, without the use of indicators, as in other SSD dealing with intellectual history and history of science (e.g. history of mathematics, MAT/04).
Its specificity was acknowledged by ANVUR on the occasion of the VQR 2015-2019, in the document on the evaluation methods of GEV 13b (Economic and Business Sciences), available here: Document_GEV13b

On the peculiarities of the history of economic thought, see:
