Evaluations and promotions

What are the guidelines on promotions? What counts i.e. papers, doctoral students, etc? There are no set guidelines (and I suspect there will never be). There is a fear that having set guidelines will result in people following the letter of the guideline rather than the spirit and abuse the system. Generally, publishing papers in reputed International Journals is the best bet; guiding doctoral theses can help in some circumstances.
