his is an analysis of discourses educational research quality in Sweden with the aim to highlight different ways to describe and evaluate educational research. Of special interest is here the period 1990-2014 when higher education is in a period of expansion and restructuring with changing demands on research evaluation combined with changing ways of funding higher education institutions and research. The ambition is to define this trajectory with different actors and controversies. The Swedish case will be related to a Nordic (Norway) and an Anglo-Saxon (Australia) case. The study is carried out from a dynamic nominalist perspective (Hacking, 1999) focusing on actors and institutions at work. Issues and controversies will be defined in relation to discourse analyses of policy documents, research reviews of different kinds (research councils, research assessment exercises etc) and on thin and thick descriptions (Porter, 2012) of research. Conclusions: Firstly, educational research assessments are in transition - from internal professional initiatives and collegial decision-making to external administrative initiatives and principles for new public management. Secondly, research evaluation exercises are having an increasing globalizing tendency concerning criteria for research quality and are also increasingly based on international reviewers. Thirdly, there is an ongoing debate on the composition of measurements such as citation impact or peer review. Fourthly, given these tendencies educational research in Sweden is in a a turmoil considering addressees of educational research as well as struggles for research resources with other disciplines and faculties. Given this it is vital to analyze the field of educational research. Relevance to Nordic educational research: this symposium will serve as an input to continuing analyses of educational research policies and formation in the different Nordic countries. Attachment to NERA-network and symposium: Politics of Education and Education Policy Studies Network and the symposium "Educational Research Quality in Question: Research Evaluations and Research Policy in Sweden in a Nordic Perspective"
