Bibliometric Analysis & Benchmarking

Research Impact Services can conduct bibliometric analysis at different levels (individual, institutional, national and international), as well as provide support, training and peer-review for your analysis.

Some questions that we can help answer are:

  • What are our research strengths?
  • What are our peers at other universities doing?
  • How do we compare to the national benchmarks?
  • Are we studying cutting-edge topics?
  • Is our work cited enough?
  • Are we collaborating effectively?
  • Are we publishing in the right journal?
Online research impact tools

We use several tools to conduct analysis, and these are available to you too. Don’t hesitate to contact us for support with access and use!

Academic impact tools

SciVal and Incites are citation-based research analytics tools which can be applied for a variety of purposes, such as:

  • Generation of regular research impact reports
  • Benchmarking
  • Recruitment
  • Exploring collaborations

Societal impact tools

We are continually developing services to help researchers and research groups analyze and demonstrate societal impact and relevance of research over time, both in annual reporting and in SEP-evaluations.

As part of this effort, the UG Library has obtained a license to Altmetric.com as from November 2018. Altmetric allows users to track the attention that research gets outside of academic publications, including mentions in the press, blogs, policy documents, patents, on social media, Mendeley and other sources.

As a supporter of the Leiden Manifesto, we highlight the responsible use of metrics and prudent use of research analytics tools in all of our activities.
