Making Research Count

Higher Education Strategy Associates recently released a report that provides a review of bibliometrics.

"It’s time for applications of bibliometrics to become more sensitive to publication culture. Just as importantly, users of bibliometrics need to be aware of the dramatic biases that publication culture can generate. We hope that this paper inspires both scholars and professionals to use accurate and normalized measures when applying bibliometrics to their research, assessment, and decision-making activities."
