Bibliometric analysis in science and research: applications, benefits and limitations

September 15, 2003

Brussels, 12 Sep 2003

An international conference on bibliometric analysis in science and research will take place from 5 to 7 November in Jülich, Germany.

Bibliometry serves to obtain performance indicators, thus generating a field of tension between all disciplines of research, information science, science management and research policy.

Against the background of the performance-oriented allocation of funds, decision makers increasingly require figures on the quality and quantity of scientific output. Bibliometry is therefore a means of measuring and providing this type of data.

The conference will seek to address the concerns of:
- scientists;
- science policy makers;
- science managers;
- information specialists;
- experts in bibliometric analysis.
