Bibliometrics: Help or Hoax for Quality?
Galetto, F.
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v2 n4 p339-374 2014
Higher Education Institutions should provide students good teaching with good professors who have good knowledge of the matter they are teaching. Unfortunately, many times, the opposite happens: career leaps depend on "bibliometric indexes" (Impact Points, "h"-index, "s"-index, "RG"-index, "s"-index...).Until today, incompetent lecturers teach wrong ideas because they do not know Probability Theory and Reliability Theory. There is a must: professors must use the Scientific Approach when they teach, they must know what scientificness entails. Cases of incompetent teaching are presented: the Bass model, invented by Bass in 1969, is used here to show how Bass itself made errors in the first time, and later, many professors copied, with irrational attitude, his ideas and diffused them to much more many students, all over the world. The same is for the fuzzy theory applied to Quality, for inventory management, for six sigma.
