Added by Sarah on 18 June 2009 15:39

A new RIN report highlights important issues both for those who produce bibliometric analyses of research performance and for those who commission and make use of such work.

The data sources and methods of analysis for measuring the UK?s share of the global production of scientific publications are complex and can lead to big differences in the figures.

The UK?s share of world research output: an investigation of different data sources and time trendsexplains how these difference arise and reflects on the implications for the measurement of UK scientific performance.
