One way t o meet these initiatives and mandates quantitatively is to use evaluative bibliometrics. Bibliometrics is a method to research the science of science, or to evaluate the productivity of scientific research. Essentially, bibliometrics uses mathematics and statistical methods to. A comprehensive, state-of-the-art examination of the changing ways we measure scholarly performance and research impact. Bibliometrics has moved well beyond the mere tracking of bibliographic citations. The web enables new ways to measure scholarly productivity and impact, making available tools and data that can reveal patterns of intellectual activity and impact that were previously.

Evaluative bibliometrics uses advanced techniques to assess the impact of scholarly work in the context of other scientific work and usually compares the relative scientific contributions of research groups or institutions. Using publications from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) HIV/AIDS extramural clinical trials networks, we assessed the presence Cited by: Bibliometrics as a Tool for Research Evaluation Chapter in forthcoming book: Al Link & Nick Vornatas, Handbook on the Theory and Practice of Program Evaluation, Edward Elgar, Diana Hicks and Julia Melkers School of Public Policy Georgia Institute of Technology Atlanta GA, March

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Evaluative bibliometrics is concerned with comparing research units by using statistical procedures. According to Williams () an empirical study should be concerned with the substantive and practical significance of the findings as well as the sign and statistical significance of effects. In this study we will explain what adjusted predictions and marginal. Evaluative bibliometrics compares the citation impact of researchers, research groups and institutions with each other across time scales and disciplines. Both factors - discipline and period - have an influence on the citation count which is independent of the quality of the publication.

Box AX Leiden, The Netherlands Tel. +31 71 Fax +31 71 E-mail [email protected] This paper covers the differences between two separate bibliometric approaches, labelled ‘descriptive’ versus ‘evaluative’, or top down versus bottom up.

The most important difference between these two approaches is found in the level of validity of the underlying research by:   While evaluative bibliometrics study includes the “study of the literature used by research workers in a given field”.

In our monograph “Evaluative Bibliometrics” we discussed the many uses of publication and citation analysis in the evaluation of scientific activities, and some of the basic statistical properties of the scientific literature, particularly the skewness of the distributions of publications and citations, reference time distributions, and various anomalies in the citation patterns from.

A notable feature of convening debates on evaluative bibliometrics is they do not simply attract professional bibliometricians. One way or another, all disciplines have a stake in these matters, as do publishers, policymakers, and university by: 2.
