Bibliometric Indicators for Young Scientists: "Scientific Quality" and "Scientific Productivity"

Interesting article:

Von Bohlen und Halbach’s “How to judge a book by its cover? How useful are bibliometric indices for the evaluation of "scientific quality" or "scientific productivity"?” includes a thoughtful review of bibliometric indices used to evaluate the performance of scientists and proposes two indicators for evaluating young scientists to correct for career length:

  • Py as an indicator for productivity
  • m index as an indicator for scientific quality

“. . . it is suggested that in case of evaluation, the m-index and Py should be calculated and these indicators should also be used in case of a bibliometric based evaluation, since all other indicators depend on the time a scientists spends in the field.” [p. 195]
