Degn, Lise; Mejlgaard, Niels; Schneider, Jesper Wiborg – Research Evaluation, 2019
The aim of this article is to present an alternative method for science mapping, which remedies some of the classic limitations to e.g. using co-citation analysis as a mapping tool. With the emergence of new, more complex and interdisciplinary areas of research it becomes important to adjust our understandings of how to study these areas, and the…

Hiruy, Kiros; Murphy, Ray; Lewis, Tom; White, William T.; Purcell, Steven W. – Research Evaluation, 2019
Research-for-development (R4D), as a mode of foreign aid, is a practical way to support developing countries. However, few studies have assessed the scientific impacts of R4D projects. Here, we applied an integrated assessment approach to evaluate the scientific impact of research projects commissioned by the Australian Centre for International…

Payumo, Jane G.; Lan, George; Arasu, Prema – Research Evaluation, 2018
This study offers a unique lens on the patterns, productivity, and impact of researcher mobility at a US research-intensive university. Bibliometric data for Washington State University (WSU) was extracted from Elsevier's Scopus database and analyzed for the 10-year period from 2002 to 2012. We grouped researchers into four categories based on…

Hilário, Carla Mara; Martínez-Ávila, Daniel; Grácio, Maria Cláudia Cabrini; Wolfram, Dietmar – Research Evaluation, 2018
This article aims to contribute to the discussion on authorship in contemporary science from Foucauldian and Kuhnian perspectives, highlighting the social aspects of science and the role of authorship in scientific revolutions. Thus, it describes the functions of the 'author' discussed by Foucault that can assist to reveal the characteristics of…

Bornmann, Lutz; Haunschild, Robin – Research Evaluation, 2017
Bibliometrics is successful in measuring impact because the target is clearly defined: the publishing scientist who is still active and working. Thus, citations are a target-oriented metric which measures impact on science. In contrast, societal impact measurements based on altmetrics are as a rule intended to measure impact in a broad sense on…

Hammarfelt, Björn; Rushforth, Alexander D. – Research Evaluation, 2017
A researcher's number of publications has been a fundamental merit in the competition for academic positions since the late 18th century. Today, the simple counting of publications has been supplemented with a whole range of bibliometric indicators, which supposedly not only measures the volume of research but also its impact. In this study, we…

Baccini, Alberto; De Nicolao, Giuseppe – Research Evaluation, 2017
This letter documents some problems in Ancaiani et al. (2015). Namely the evaluation of concordance, based on Cohen's kappa, reported by Ancaiani et al. was not computed on the whole random sample of 9,199 articles, but on a subset of 7,597 articles. The kappas relative to the whole random sample were in the range 0.07-0.15, indicating an…

Bruno, Karl; Larsen, Katarina; van Leeuwen, Thed N. – Research Evaluation, 2017
This article examines dynamics of knowledge production and discourses of basic-applied science and relevance at the Swedish Institute for Surface Chemistry, a semi-public industrially oriented research institute, from 1980 to 2005. We employ a three-pronged method, consisting of (1) an analysis of how the institute articulated its research…

Ahmed, Mohamed O.; Daw, Mohamed A.; van Velkinburgh, Jennifer C. – Research Evaluation, 2017
Understanding the publication output of a country's biomedical research can provide information for strengthening its policies, economy, and educational systems. Yet, this is the first bibliometric study to date to analyze and provide an in-depth discussion of the biomedical research productivity from Libyan academic institutions. The biomedical…
