Bibliometrics means quantitative studies of scientific publications, and considers e.g. productivity and impact. Co-authorships and citations can also be used to visualize co-publication patterns and connections between subject areas.
Bibliometric analyses are used as a complement to internal and external evaluations ("peer review") of research fields and in international ranking of universities.
Bibliometrics is included in the Department for Publishing Infrastructure. Among the main assignments of the unit are:
- Delivery of publication statistics for LiU, and production of bibliometric reports for LiU departments and research groups.
- To assist the university management in the assessment of external bibliometric analyses and ranking lists.
