Transcript

  • 1. International collaborations in a Research Institute : Bibliometric study Odile Bédu Inra, French National Institute for Agricultural Research, France
  • 2. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Inra: short description Three domains for Research Mission Oriented Research Institution New concepts, Innovation & Expertise; Multistakeholders approach: Academia, Farm Organizations, Industry, Society; Science & Society: information, dialogue, transparancy Agriculture, Human Nutrition, Environment
  • 3. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 How we are organized
    • Double contract with Ministries of Research and Agriculture
    • 2nd Research Institution in France
    • Personnel 8 200 : 1800 Researchers, 2400 Engineers, 4000 Technicians & Staff
    • + 1600 PhD
    • Scientific Publications:
    • 5,29% for French Scientific Publications
    • The number exceeded 3500 per year in 2007.
  • 4. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Various way of intervention Production of knowledge Training in research, through research Dissemination and exploitation of research results Scientific expertise Involvement in the science-society debate International activity Its teams have contacts with a multitude of research or training sites around the world, Several agreements signed or renewed every year.
  • 5. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Department of International Relations (DIR)
    • Looking for indicators wich can caracterize international activity
    • Several indicators are available
    • A co-publication study is essential
  • 6. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Methodology Corpus constitution First results Main difficulties Conclusion
  • 7. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Methodology
  • 8. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 An exploratory study
    • Years 2001-2005
    • Relevance of this analysis
    • Choice of the Data Base
    • Choice of the tools
  • 9. Corpus constitution IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010
  • 10. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Choice of the WOS databank
    • Large international cover
    • Knowledge of all the addresses of the authors
    • N ew links since 2008 between the authors and their adresses.
    Research query
    • [AD=(Natl* same Inst* same Rech* same Agr) or (AD=INRA*) or (OG=INRA) ] and PY=(2006, 2007, 2008)]
    • Refine this result by the Analyse function: countries and PY
    Elimination of the synonyms
  • 11. First results IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010
  • 12. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 The first results can be given fast 1- Increase of the number of co-publications YEAR Nb. % 2006 1279 29,20 2007 1480 33,80 2008 1624 37,10 Total 4383 100,00 The increase is more than 29/%
  • 13. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 2 - Ranking of the countries This number of countries is almost permanent, The first twenty countries have a low variability PAYS Nb.cit. % PAYS Nb.cit % USA 745 17 Sweden 152 3,5 UK 604 13,8 Brazil 137 3,1 Germany 490 11,2 Denmark 136 3,1 Italy 409 9,3 Tunisia 131 3 Spain 398 9,1 China 125 2,9 Canada 329 7,5 Japan 120 2,7 Belgium 324 7,4 Mexico 113 2,6 Switzerland 290 6,6 Portugal 113 2,6 Netherlands 268 6,1 CzechRepublic 95 2,2 Australia 213 4,9 Austria 87 2 TOTAL. 4383
  • 14. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 2 - Ranking of the concerned countries The number decreases very fast
  • 15. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 3 – Suject categories
    • They caracterize a Source journal
    • Global results are trivial: the first SC are Plant Science and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.
    • Interest of the list of the first ones:
    SC %. SC % . Plant Sciences 13,6 Agriculture, Dairy & Animal Science 7,3 Biochemistry & Molecular Biology 11,3 Biotechnology & Applied Microbiology 7 Genetics & Heredity 7,8 Food Science & Technology 6,7 Microbiology 7,6 Ecology 5,3
  • 16. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 3 – Suject categories
    • The next 6 Subjects Categories
    SC % Ecology 5,3 Veterinary Sciences 5 Agronomy 4,5 Environmental Sciences 4,2 Cell Biology 3,5 Nutrition & Dietetics 3,3
  • 17. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 3 – Suject categories Results are more interesting country by country USA Biochemistry & Molecular Biology UK Germany Spain Canada Plant Sciences Italy Genetics & Heredity Belgium Veterinary Sciences Switzeland Ecology
  • 18. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Difficulties 1- Structure of the adresses: Structured on organisation, sub-organisation, zip code cityies, provinces, and countries Nestle Res Ctr, CH-1000 Lausanne, Switzerland Wageningen UR, Anim Sci Grp, Lelystad, Netherlands Max Planck Inst Biogeochem, Jena, Germany Max Planck Inst Mol Plant Physiol, D-14476 Golm, Germany Rothamsted Res, Harpenden AL5 2JQ, Herts, England Univ Cambridge, Dept Plant Sci, Cambridge CB2 3EA, England Univ Ghent VIB, Dept Plant Syst Biol, B-9052 Ghent, Belgium Univ Tuscia, Dept Forest Environm & Resources, DISAFRI, I-01100 Viterbo, Italy Harokopio Univ, Dept Nutr & Dietet, Athens, Greece Univ Piemonte Orientale Amedeo Avogadro, Dipartimento Sci Ambiente & Vita, I-15100 Alessandria, Italy
  • 19. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Difficulties
    • The corrections concerned the 2 levels very 3 levels, with:
      • assistance of the software
      • return to the web sites and the publications
      • assistance of the experts
  • 20. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Difficulties 2- After achieving this work, the results are given in the total account:
    • Lists of partners, by country: frame of references for preparing international contacts
    • We see that the number of new partner-institutions increase when the number of co-publications increases.
    • Couples of list of partner-institutions
    These results interest the direction of Inra to qualify its international relations. That also makes it possible to answer at the requests of ministries.
  • 21. Conclusion IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010
  • 22. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010
    • The study is going to continue; it is going to be enriched
    • by the indicators of the ESI on institutions.
    • Indeed, it is important to check if the strong points of our
    • partners are well the fields in which we copublish.
    • Two others working trends:
    • - How do the foreign researchers publish after they have passed
    • their PhD in Inra?
    • - How do the Inra researchers publish after a sabbatical year
    • (or time) in a foreign research institute?
    • For these 2 questions, crossed comparaisons could also
    • be very interesting.
  • 23. IAALD XIIIth World congress Montpellier 26-29 April 2010 Thank you for you attention
