    26. 26. Bibliometric indicators: An example  Kroes-Nijboer, A; Venema, P; Bouman, J; van der Linden, E (2009) The Critical Aggregation Concentration of beta- Lactoglobulin-Based Fibril Formation. Food Biophysics 4(2):59- 63. ● Citations from WoS: 11  Journal: Food Biophysics ● Categorised by ESI in Agricultural Sciences  Baseline data for Agricultural Sciences. ● Article from 2009 in Agricultural Sciences: ● On average: 5.47 citations; top 10%: 14 citations; top 1%: 34 citations  Relative Impact: 11/5.47 = 2.01 Values June 2013
    27. 27. Essential Science Indicators (ESI)  Analytical database, covering 10 years + current year building  Comparisons between Countries, Institutes, Scientists and Journals  Hot papers / Highly cited papers  Research fronts  Baselines
    28. 28. ESI Baselines

    30. 30. Alternative to ESI: Scival (Elsevier)
    31. 31. Steps in a citation analysis 1. Look up the citation data (Web of Science) 2. Matching Journal(s) with appropriate research fields (Essential Science Indicators) 3. Collect baseline data (Essential Science Indicators) 4. Calculate the relative impact
    32. 32. Interpretation of RI for small groups  With 10-50 publications per year RI ≤ 0.8 : below world average impact 0.8 < RI ≤ 1.2 : world average impact 1.2 < RI ≤ 2.0 : above world average impact 2.0 < RI ≤ 3.0 : very good average impact RI > 3.0 : excellent average impact

    34. 34. H-index  Balance between productivity and citedness  To rule out the effect of one or two highly cited papers  Applicable to authors, journals, research groups, compounds, subjects etc.  But there are some serious doubts about robustness Waltman, L. & N. J. van Eck (2011). The inconsistency of the h-index. Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology 63(2):406-415 http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/asi.21678

    51. 51. Cooperation  Teams increasingly dominate solo authors in the production of knowledge. Research is increasingly done in teams across nearly all fields.  Teams typically produce more frequently cited research than individuals do, and this advantage has been increasing over time.  Teams now also produce the exceptionally high-impact research, even where that distinction was once the domain of solo authors. Wuchty, S., B. F. Jones, et al. (2007). The increasing dominance of teams in production of knowledge. Science 316(5827): 1036-1039. http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/science.1136099
