Bibliometrics helps to optimize publications strategies and to increase general visibility.
The value of this quantitative discipline stands and falls with the underlying data quality. Data cleaning and disambiguation, selection of appropriate data sources (considering completeness and coverage) and indicators (considering the multidimensional aspects and different publication cultures) are the main prerequisites for sound bibliometric analyses.
The Department for Bibliometrics and Publication Strategies supports researchers in the ‘publish or perish’ dilemma.
It also provides expertise for our research administration (Rector’s Office and Quality Assurance) during all kinds of research assessment exercises.
