    Aktivitet: Deltagelse i eller arrangement af en begivenhed - typerWorkshop


    Workshoppen er et mix af indhold fra Leidens kurser indenfor hhv. Bibliometri og Citationsanalyse og kursets indhold er beskrevet således af CWTS:

    “The course will consist of a mixture of lectures given by CWTS staff on the one hand and practical sessions with participants working on hands-on assignments on the other hand. Interactive teaching methods will be used both in the practical sessions and in the lectures”

    Bibliometric data sources and data collection: The strengths and weaknesses of different bibliometric data sources will be discussed, focusing on Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar. Strategies for bibliometric data collection will be discussed as well. During the hands-on exercises, participants will use Web of Science to become familiar with important pitfalls in the use of bibliometric data (e.g., errors in citation matching and problems of author disambiguation).

    Citation analysis: The rationale of citation analysis will be discussed and the most important types of indicators will be introduced (i.e., basic and advanced fieldnormalized indicators; h-index; impact factor; SNIP). In addition, various practical issues in the use of citation analysis will be discussed, including the limited usefulness of citation analysis in engineering research, the social sciences, and the humanities, the problem of the lack of bibliometric data on books, and the problem of gaming or manipulation of citation-based indicators. During the hands-on exercises, participants will use the CWTS Monitor software to practice with the interpretation of advanced bibliometric indicators.
