Bibliometric indicators are calculated using citation and publication indices, and can be used for illuminating aspects of scientific activity such as productivity, impact and influence. Bibliometrics can also be used to create maps of social and intellectual structures in different research fields – (see our links for more info.)
Expert staff at the Lund University Library are working to:
- perform bibliometric analysis from Lund University Publications;
- support decision makers and scientists at Lund University to interpret external bibliometric evaluations;
- raise the level of awareness and knowledge of bibliometrics within the University;
- follow the development within the field.
Links to the citation databases are found among our links, where you can see article citations or journal impact factors. If you have questions about these databases, you're welcome to contact Kent-Inge Andersson or Sandra Elebro.
