Jornada sobre Bibliometria

09 Oct 2013 BAC

The BAC shares his experience with librarians and researchers on a morning dedicated to bibliometrics.

Among other things, we discussed on basic concepts of the process of knowledge creation and how this process is viewed in bibliometrics. Furthermore, exchanges of opinion took place on methodological issues such as the calculation of indicators, their significance and on how the distribution of data affect the selection of suitable statistics and proper interpretation of the indicators. The session ended with a description of the types of studies that can be performed in bibliometrics.

The BAC is grateful to participants for their contributions, and to Llorenç Arguimbau in the Observatori de la Recerca and to the Institut d’Estudis Catalans for their support.

The slides are available in the attached file.
