Science-Metrix contributes to CGIAR’s evaluation guidelines March 2023 CGIAR recently published guidelines that harmonize how research and science quality is evaluated within CGIAR. These guidelines draw on work that Science-Metrix completed for CGIAR last year. In 2022, CGIAR Advisory Services (CAS) contracted Science-Metrix to create recommendations on the use of bibliometrics to evaluate quality of […]
Working together for clean oceans and waterways February 2023 Eight million metric tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean each year, and more than one million marine organisms die each year from plastic pollution. Plastic damages coral reefs, harms the marine ecosystem, and can break down into microplastics, pieces of plastic so small they are […]

Analyzing REF outputs: exploring new approaches December 2022 REF—the Research Excellence Framework—is an evaluation of the research impact of UK higher education institutions. In a recent study, Science-Metrix, collaborating with Technopolis, investigated the possibilities for using machine learning and automated processes on REF 2021 data. The goal of this study, which was commissioned by a group of […]
Assessing the impact of UK investment in the European Space Agency November 2022 The UK Space Agency commissioned a consortium, of which Science-Metrix was part, to design, develop, and implement a monitoring and evaluation programme for the UK Space Agency’s investment in the European Space Agency (ESA). The UK allocates approximately three-quarters of its space […]
Can modern visualization approaches integrate the multidimensional nature of complex social phenomena by revealing essential key findings to the user? In other words, can advanced data visualization let the data speak for itself?
“Building a sustainable future in uncertain times”: Science-Metrix contributes to SRIP 2022
In January 2020, to address the public health emergency of Covid-19 and accelerate the pace of research, Wellcome, together with the Gates Foundation and UKRI, issued a broad-reaching statement calling for increased open science practices for Covid-19 related publications. Many journals, publishers, and organisations signed on.
Did the open-science practices of the signers and their associated researchers change as a result?
New paper on the link between interdisciplinarity, self-citation, and gender June 2022 A new paper by Science-Metrix scientists could help funders assess whether gender differences in interdisciplinary research are accurate and reliable. Given the rise of funding for interdisciplinary research (IDR), obtaining an accurate understanding of gender differences in IDR is highly relevant for funders, […]
Bibliometrics: a powerful tool for evaluating the quality of science 02 May 2022 Bibliometrics is often associated with publication counts and citation impact indicators, but bibliometric analysis can also be a powerful tool for monitoring and evaluating the quality of scientific research with research program-relevant breadth and depth. EvalForward, a community of practice on evaluation […]
