Brown Bag-Seminar: Normalization of Citation Impact

11:00 - 12:30 Uhr, Lutz Bornmann (Max-Planck-Gesellschaft)

Professional bibliometrics is characterized by using field-normalized indicators for research evaluation. Citation rates differ by field (independently of the papers’ quality) and these differences should be considered in cross-field comparisons (e.g. of universities). In the first part of the presentation, the standard field-normalization approaches are explained. Several examples are presented of how field-normalized scores can be used for research evaluation. In the second part of the presentation, some current research projects and recently developed tools in the area of bibliometrics are shown.
