abstract
Background:
Studies on Research Evaluation are developed through interdisciplinary perspectives that include Higher Education Study, STS (Science technology and society), Scientometrics, Evaluation Study, Sociology of Science, and Philosophy of Science.  

Objectives:
To make available findings and theory about Research Evaluation in recent years.  

Search Method:
Retrospective review. That includes citation search on early review (Asonuma, 2006; Bornmann, 2008; Coryn & Scriven, 2008; Foltz, 2000; Hansson, 2006; Weingart, 2005), and database search such as JSTOR, and overviews of academic journals such as Research Evaluation, Bulletin of Science technology and society, Scientometric, New directions for Evaluation, Social Studies on Science, and so on.  

Data Collection and Analysis:
Literature were read, classified and described according to their topics and findings.  

Main Result:
Generally, findings and theory in STS, Scientometrics, Evaluation Study are based on the Sociology of Science. And recent Sociology of Science is deeply associated with the Philosophy of Science deeply and, in particular, the theme of the “paradoxical nature of science” that is to say, the process of Science is heavily affected by social context, but as a result Science bears un-social “truth”. At the end of this retrospective review, employing the concept of “paradoxical nature of science”, this study offers some prospective discussion about research question on research evaluation.
