Bibliometrics is hailed as an “objective” measure of research quality, a quantitative measure more useful than “subjective” and intuitive evaluation methods such as peer review that have been used since scientific papers were first published in the seventeenth century.

bibliometric indicators have proven to be useful tools in the assessment of research performance in many scientific disciplines, provided that such indicators have a sufficient level of sophistication, that their pitfalls are taken into account, and that they are used in. Many research centers are evaluated according to the bibliometric indicators for funding.

It is also important to note that these indicators are based on data that are collected principally for commercial purposes by a private data provider drawing on a complex and evolving system of COMPENDIUM OF BIBLIOMETRIC SCIENCE INDICATORSFile Size: 1MB.

Its main goal is to develop indicators for the analysis of the research performance of monographs and academic and scientific publishers included in the Book Citation Index. This is project is carried out by the EC3 Research Group from the University of Granada. indicators in the context of science policy and research evaluation.

The basis for the use of bibliometric indicators is that new knowledge the principal objective of basic and applied – research – is disseminated to the research community through publications. Publications can thereby be used as indirect measures of knowledge production.

It is, we believe, these ‘shades of grey’ that populate evaluative bibliometric practices, and which therefore require further attention if the uses of bibliometric indicators in research evaluation are to be better understood and theorized.

To do so, we suggest that directly observing indicator uses is by: Here we describe the Bibliometric Indicators for Publishers Project, an initiative undertaken by EC3Metrics SL for the analysis and development of indicators based on books and book chapters.

Its. On the other hand, the majority of research outcomes in the social sciences and humanities lie beyond journal articles.

Indicators based on citations received by publications are often used as quantitative measures of research performance. It must, however, be noted that citation indicators can act as a supplementary tool for peer-based evaluation. Indicator selection (Fig. 2A): In order to simplify the evaluation of some quality (e.g., scientific performance), an indicator (or a set of a few indicators) is identified, which is closely related to the quality in question, but much more easily measured (e.g., number of peer-reviewed publications).Cited by:   Abstract This article outlines and discusses the bibliometric indicator used for performance-based funding of research institutions in Norway.

It is argued that the indicator is novel and innovative as compared to the indicators used in other funding by: bibliometric indicators for national performance based research funding systems.

Bibliometric indicators can be calculated for an entire publication set and represent the collective judgment of a broad segment of the scientific research community, rather than that of the selected individuals chosen for the review panel.

Bibliometric indicators can also be more transparent and reproducible than peer by:. The Bibliometric Research Indicator awards research output published in the most prestigious publication channels within the research subject in question.

The BFI system is maintained by The Ministry of Higher Education and Science but The University Library of Southern Denmark offers to answer the most common questions regarding BFI and how.The journal publishes original studies, short communications, preliminary reports, review papers, letters to the editor and book reviews on scientometrics.

Due to its fully interdisciplinary character, the journal is indispensable to research workers and research administrators.• The use of bibliometric indicators measuring the scientific impact can be a useful support • Bibliometrics is a proxy measure of the concept of quality that can be fully assessed only by the expert judgement of peers • Using only peer review in large research evaluation exercises may become very costly and almost unfeasible.
