Call For Papers

The Elsevier Bibliometric Research Program – Call for proposals


----PLEASE EXCUSE ANY CROSS POSTING---


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

ELSEVIER BIBLIOMETRIC RESEARCH PROGRAM (EBRP)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The program aims to enable external research groups or individual researchers in the field of bibliometrics and quantitative research assessment, to carry out strategic research using Elsevier data, and to present the outcomes in peer-reviewed journal papers and at international conferences.

External groups and/or individual researchers will submit research proposals via a submission system to the EBRP Secretariat.

A Scientific Board of internationally recognized experts and chaired by Henk F. Moed (scientific Director at Elsevier), will evaluate the proposals and decide whether or not they should be granted.

When a positive final decision is reached, Elsevier will create a specific dataset based on the proposal's specifications and send it free of charge to the applicants who are allowed to use it in their research.

Call For Proposals

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The program covers all topics in the field of bibliometrics and research assessment, but preferred themes for 2012 proposals are:

•Communication, publication, citation, usage (full text article downloading) and evaluation processes in the humanities and social sciences.


•Scientific mobility and collaboration: its measurement and use in policy oriented studies.


• What do usage (full text article downloads)-based indicators measure?

• The usefulness of basic science for engineering and innovation.

• The creation and assessment of subject classification systems of scientific-scholarly research that account for multi-disciplinarity.

• Determinants of research performance: which factors hamper or enhance the research performance of research groups or institutions in the various domains of science and scholarship?

• Assessing the effectiveness of research policies: the use of S&T indicators to test assumptions and effects of particular institutional or national research policies.
