    The study took place at the University of Missouri where a sample of 86 “hard” science professors pursuing funded research in 23 departments were evaluated. The major conclusion of this research is that effectiveness can be measured by a simple count of Cited by: Downloadable (with restrictions)! Summary This paper addresses research performance monitoring of the social sciences and the humanities using citation analysis. Main differences in publication and citation behavior between the (basic) sciences and the social sciences and humanities are outlined. Limitations of the (S)SCI and A&HCI for monitoring research performance are considered.

    This paper, based on the work of the HuMetricsHSS. initiative, proposes a fundamental change in how approaches to research evaluation in the humanities and social sciences are built.. The paper calls for a holistic, values-based evaluation paradigm, one that uses metrics only to measure a scholar’s progress towards embodying five values that initial research suggests are central to all.

While citation-based research performance indicators are widely used in the natural and life sciences, quantitative measures for research performance meet strong opposition in the humanities.

Nederhof. The danger is that research agendas and systems, including KPIs, followed by the social sciences or indeed the natural and life sciences will be applied uniformly to the humanities. Such indicators will not capture the impact and contribution of humanities research.

One of the most commonly used instruments based on publication databases to evaluate research in the natural and life sciences are bibliometric indicators. The third part of the book investigates the limitations and potential of bibliometric instruments when applied to the by: 1.

Research in the humanities, social sciences, and fine and creative arts has impact but defining, measuring, and comparing these impacts is an enormous challenge. This research contributes to a free and democratic society, public policy, quality of life, social.

Conclusion This paper explored the growth of Malaysian research in terms of funding and publication as the major performance indicators, with focus on social science and humanities research. This paper has proven that there was an overall upward trend to all research areas including social science and humanities research in Malaysia and by: 6.

assessing research quality and impact. For basic research in the natural sciences, there are fairly well established indicators of research output and impact (based on publications and citations), but these work poorly for the social sciences and barely at all for arts and humanities.

Third, research funders and others may want to use the database to. Research assessment in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) is delicate.

Assessment procedures meet strong criticisms from SSH scholars and bibliometric research shows that the methods that Cited by: 6. Bibliometric evaluations of research outputs in the social sciences and humanities are challenging due to limitations associated with Web of Science data; however, background literature has shown that scholars are interested in stimulating improvements.

We give special attention to book reviews processed by Web of Science history and literature journals, focusing on two types: Type I (i.e Cited by: Options for a comprehensive database of research outputs in social sciences and humanities (Annex 2 of the report 'Towards a bibliometric database for the social sciences and humanities-a European Author: Gerhard Lauer.

Such indicators are applied both in the study of scholarly communication and in the assessment of research performance. The term ‘scholarly’ comprises all domains of science and scholarship, including not only those fields that are normally denoted as science – the natural and life sciences.

quantitative measures of research perfor-mance. Among the social sciences, only in the field of psychology, bibliometrics was consid-ered a valuable attribute to the research as-sessment procedure. In other social sciences, the humanities, and law, bibliometric studies were not considered as a support tool to the peer review process.

Using places of publication barycenters, we measure internationalization of book publishing in the Social Sciences and Humanities. Based on – data for Flanders, Belgium, we demonstrate how the geographic center of weight of book publishing is different for the Social Sciences than for the by: Sciences in regard with books (32% for Science vs.

Research assessment in the humanities: towards criteria and procedures. [Michael Ochsner; Sven E Hug; Hans-Dieter Daniel;] -- This book analyses and discusses the recent developments for assessing research quality in the humanities and related fields in the social sciences.

Research assessments in the humanities are highly. The narrowest categorization. The Web of Science schema is comprised of subject categories in science, social sciences, arts, and humanities.

The schema is created by assigning each journal to one or more subject categories. Broad disciplines. In the humanities and social sciences, bibliometric methods for the assessment of research performance are (so far) less common.

The current study takes a concrete example in an attempt to evaluate a research institute from the area of social sciences and humanities with the help of data from Google Scholar (GS). Although the humanities are more continentally oriented in their book publishing, the social sciences are firmly Anglo-Saxon oriented (Verleysen & Engels, ).

A study of coauthorship patterns in the SSH indicated that collaborative publishing in the SSH is increasing with a sharp decline in single-author publishing (Ossenblok et al., ).Cited by: 1.Social Sciences and Humanities across Horizon As a cross-cutting issue of broad relevance, Social Sciences and Humanities are fully integrated into each of the general objectives of Horizon Integrating SSH research across Horizon is key to enhance industrial leadership and to tackle each of the societal challenges.
