Rodríguez-Navarro, Alonso; Brito, Ricardo – Research Evaluation, 2020
The use of bibliometric indicators would simplify research assessments. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) is a peer review assessment of UK universities, whose results can be taken as benchmarks for bibliometric indicators. In this study, we use the REF results to investigate whether the e[subscript p] index and a top percentile of most…

Williams, Kate – Research Evaluation, 2020
How research is assessed affects what types of knowledge are valued, incentivized, and rewarded. An increasingly important element of contemporary research evaluation is the measurement of the wider impact of research (e.g. benefit to society, culture or economy). Although the measurement of impact has been highly contested, the area is…

Degn, Lise; Mejlgaard, Niels; Schneider, Jesper Wiborg – Research Evaluation, 2019
The aim of this article is to present an alternative method for science mapping, which remedies some of the classic limitations to e.g. using co-citation analysis as a mapping tool. With the emergence of new, more complex and interdisciplinary areas of research it becomes important to adjust our understandings of how to study these areas, and the…

Gingras, Yves; Khelfaoui, Mahdi – Research Evaluation, 2019
Given the importance of books and book chapters as vehicles of knowledge in social sciences and humanities (SSH) disciplines, it has previously been thought that the application of citation metrics to the evaluation of these disciplines should also include, in addition to journal articles, citations from books and book chapters. The main argument…

Luo, Junwen; Ordóñez-Matamoros, Gonzalo; Kuhlmann, Stefan – Research Evaluation, 2019
Evaluation taking place within publicly funded research institutions (PRIs) has been practiced as a useful instrument to justify PRIs' public funding and to provide evidence for their internal decision-making. The role of evaluation in organizational governance is well-acknowledged as being important in PRIs' management practices. However, it has…
