Bibliometrics: a Key Performance Indicator in Assessing the Influence of Biomedical Research 

12-27-2016 10:12

Bibliometrics, a quantitative evaluation of publication and citation data, is one type of indicator of productivity, influence, collaboration, and reach of scientific programs. Using research publications from programs funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund, this presentation will focus on (1) the feasibility and utility of bibliometrics as a performance indicator for research programs, and (2) how bibliometrics integrate with other methods used to evaluate biomedical research programs. Challenges and lessons learned using bibliometrics as a performance indicator for NIH Common Fund programs will be discussed. Selected results including bibliometric data generated by Web of Science and a new measure – relative citation ratio (RCR) – will be explored. The implications of these results related to science productivity and influence will also be discussed. Evaluators who assess research and technology programs will benefit from the experiences of the NIH Common Fund using bibliometrics as one of several program assessment tools.
