Institusjonene blir i økende grad mer strategiske når det gjelder å støtte sine forskningstalenter, i å identifisere potensielle områder for vekst og styrke og i å finne ut hvor man skal posisjonere seg i Norge og på den globale arena. Institusjonene samler inn og håndterer mer data. Institusjonelle beslutningsprosesser støttes gjennom bruk av bibliometri og indikatorer. Denne workshopen, sponset av Elsevier, vil gi en innføring i å bruke bibliometri og indikatorer, og vil se på den praktiske anvendelsen av forskningsdata, bibliometri og indikatorer i forskningsledelse.

Etter deltagelsen denne dagen vil kursdeltagerne:

  • Forstå hvordan man bruker bibliometri til å måle individuell- og institusjonell forskningsytelse;
  • Forstå hvilke faktorer som skal vurderes ved valg av hensiktsmessige bibliometriske verktøy og indikatorer;
  • Forstå bruken av indikatorer for å evaluere forskningsinstitusjoner, og hvordan koble institusjonens strategi med indikatorene.

Målgruppe: Denne workshopen er ment for forskningsledere og forskningsadministratorer som er involvert i datafangst og ledelse og / eller som bruker bibliometri og indikatorer som en del av sin rolle.

Before joining VU University he was subject specialist and bibliometrician at Wageningen University. His quantitative background was an asset when he joined the library world in 2000. As bibliometrician he has gained a lot of experience with studying the scientific output of institutions. Factors which explained publication impact have always captured his interest. A new toolset to capture the interactions of scholarly communication in the social web gave rise to the so called Altmetrics. Bibliometrics, publication strategy and Altmetrics are the main topics of his tweet stream @wowter, and blog at
