Bibliometrics helps to optimize publications strategies and to increase general visibility.
Bibiometrics help to optimise publication strategies and increase general visibility. The value of this quantitative discipline greatly depends on the quality of the data. Therefore, data cleaning and disambiguation, the selection of appropriate data sources (in consideration of completeness and coverage) as well as the selection of appropriate indicators (in consideration of multidimensionality and different publication cultures) are the key prerequisites for thorough bibliometric analyses.
The Bibliometrics and Publication Strategies unit provides assistance to researchers who face the so-called “publish or perish” dilemma.
It also regularly advises the university administration (Rectorate, Unit for Quality Assurance) in assessing research achievements.
