Publication and citation analysis

Publication and citation analysis, or bibliometrics, is the quantitative statistical analysis of research publications. It includes metrics to measure productivity using the number of publications, to measure impact using the number of citations, and to visualise subject structures and patterns of collaboration.

How we can assist you

The Library of Science can provide assistance in the following areas:

  • Analysis of research topics and subject structures based on publications (keywords, titles, and abstracts) at faculty, department or research team levels.
  • Analysis of collaboration patterns within your specified organisation at faculty, department or research team levels.
  • Collaborations with other higher education institutions at faculty, department or research team levels.
  • Publication statistics and citation data at faculty, department or research team levels such as articles published per year, articles per journal, or the number of articles per citation class (impact factor (IF) range).
  • Analysis of researchers at the indivudal level based on h-index, total number of citations, most cited publications, and scientific impact as citations per paper (CPP).

Contact Anja Zimmerman (Biology Library and Geolibrary) or Thomas Tengelin Nyström (Physics and Astronomy Library, and Library of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering) to discuss bibliometric analysis and how we can assist you.

Please contact us in good time before you need the results, so that we can schedule time for the analysis and make sure that it does not conflict with our other activities.

Extracting documentation and reports from LUCRIS

Using the LUCRIS research database, you can extract standardised research reports and statistics for publications and research activities at the departmental, research team or project levels. Reports extracted from LUCRIS can also be used used as a basis for bibliometric analysis..

Anyone can search for information in LUCRIS, but special authorisation is required to extract reports. The Library of Science has this authorisation and can extract reports on request.

Contact Anja Zimmerman or Thomas Tengelin Nyström for assistance with LUCRIS reports.
