Measuring Societal Impact Is as Complex as ABC



This paper describes an alternative way of assessing journals considering a broader perspective of its impact. The Area-based connectedness (ABC) to society of journals applied here contributes to the assessment of the dissemination task of journals but with more data it may also contribute to the assessment of other missions.


The ABC approach assesses the performance of research actors, in this case journals, considering the characteristics of the research areas in which they are active. Each paper in a journal inherits the characteristics of its area. These areas are defined by a publication-based classification. The characteristics of areas relate to 5 dimensions of connectedness to society (news, policy, industrial R&D, technology and local interest) and are calculated by bibliometric indicators and social media metrics.


In the paper, I illustrate the approach by showing the results for a few journals. They illustrate the diverse profiles that journals may have. We are able to provide a profile for each journal in the Web of Science database. The profiles we present show an appropriate view on the journals’ societal connectedness.

Research limitations

The classification I apply to perform the analyses is a CWTS in house classification based on Web of Science data. As such the application depends on the (updates of) that system. The classification is available at

Practical implications

The dimensions of connectedness discussed in this paper relate to the dissemination task of journals but further development of this method may provide more options to monitor the tasks/mission of journals.


The ABC approach is a unique way to assess performance or impact of research actors considering the characteristics of the areas in which output is published and as such less prone to manipulation or gaming.

Practice and Challenge of International Peer Review: A Case Study of Research Evaluation of CAS Centers for Excellence

1 Introduction At present, China is a front-runner in the number of scientific outputs, but the quality remains to be improved. In order to respond to international competition and to satisfy domestic development needs, the orientation of China’s science and technology evaluation has changed from encouraging international publications to pursuing excellence and encouraging science and technology for promoting development. One of the policies is the introduction of international experts in science and technology evaluation when conditions permit. For instance

Reflections on Tools and Methods for Differentiated Assessments of Individual Scientists, Groups of Scientists and Scientific Journals

evaluations for researchers or institutions at different career or development stages. Typical reasons for this type of evaluations include promotion and funding. Universities and scientific institutions may have a legal obligation to perform regular assessments of their research work. Types of research or performance: basic or applied research in the natural sciences, basic or applied research in the social sciences and humanities, contributing to interdisciplinary research, advancing clinical medicine, patenting, technique & product development, policy research, social

Methods and Practices for Institutional Benchmarking based on Research Impact and Competitiveness: A Case Study of ShanghaiTech University

1 Introduction University benchmarking and assessment has long been a heated area of research and practices with many approaches and rankings. However, there exist different types of universities with different missions and sizes, resulting in varied emphases on research, teaching, or industrial/regional development. Even within research-oriented universities, some are more focused on basic research, while other ones aim more at applications. Most general ranking systems cannot show the degree to which ShanghaiTech University (hereafter: ShanghaiTech) as a
