Do you need to demonstrate your institutional research impact?
We offer advanced methods to measure scientific productivity and impact, taking the guesswork out of strategic planning and decision making.
With the growing emphasis on accountability in the public sector, assessment of scientific activity has become increasingly important. The analysis of publication and citation data, referred to as Bibliometrics, allows for a quantitative analysis of scientific activity and has become an essential component of peer review. Conventional methods rely solely on raw data (e.g.: the number of publications or citations), which results in biases related to group size, age of publication and subject area. Our analysis, however, are heavily focused on indicators conveying relative and proportional impact.
Our associates conduct an average of 50 bibliometric analysis for hospital departments, academic and research institutes. We work with our clients to either provide a verified, accessible and comparative report or provide comprehensive training to enable clients to conduct the analysis and reporting.
Real-world metrics and peer-based benchmarks allow our clients to make informed decisions about quality improvement initiatives and strategic planning. Our professionals serve as a comprehensive resource for quantitative, qualitative and leading edge metrics and evaluation methods.
Our specialist offer services in the following areas:
- Bibliometric Analysis & Reporting:
