1 Introduction Scientometric analyses are often used in evaluating the scientific performance of journals, universities or institutes, countries, and sometimes even individual papers and authors. We refer to them as research/publication units at various levels. These research units are often ranked according to one or more indicators. In generating such rankings, often simple counting and statistics are used, for example, counting how many citations each paper received and from there to count how many citations other research units received in total or on average
1 Introduction Research Impact (RI) is a broad topic of scientometrics to support the progress of science and monitoring the influence of efforts made by the government, institutions, societies, programs, and individual researchers. There are several documented and popular RI assessment methods developed by individuals and organisations for evaluating the research of a particular programme or general-purpose. This intent has created the diversity in evaluation methods, frameworks and scope. Some approaches focus only on the impacts related to academic recognition
for the journals published in Armenia; importing and developing Scientometrics as a separate science sub-field in Armenia; developing the Armenian Science Citation Index. (CSIAM) was to raise the quality of the Armenian journals. Since its creation in 2010 CSIAM is disseminating international standards and requirements for national journals trying to form a necessary basis for their further inclusion in international scientific databases (ISD). CSIAM has imported the third tool—ArmJIF—for a more objective evaluation of national journals ArmJIF is being calculated
1 Introduction Author co-citation analysis (ACA) was first proposed by Drs.H. D. White and B. C. Griffith in 1981. As a significant branch of scientometrics, the main purpose of ACA is to map scientific domains by pointing out the relationship of co-cited authors ( McCain, 1990 ). The past decades have witnessed the growth and development of ACA, which has been applied extensively in various domains, such as library and information science ( Anegón et al., 1998 ), computer science ( Eom, 1998 ), management science ( Charve et al., 2008 ), psychology ( Bruer, 2010
’ to the category of highly cited ‘articles’. indicated by the Web of Science and A denotes all articles indexed by the Web of Science. The Web of Science presents the name of cities in the addresses reported by the authors of publications. Naturally, one can suggest that it is difficult, if not impossible, to compare scientometric data of cities with very different sizes and populations. For example, Beijing, the Chinese capital, with almost 22 million inhabitants and an area of 16,000 km 2 is obviously not on the same tier as Guilford, Surrey, a midsized
In recent years a debate has developed over the ties between Friedrich Nietzsche’s ideas and transhumanism. This article clarifies some issues at the meta-level of the discussion. Firstly, the author provides a scientometric analysis of research trends to show the relevance of the topic. Secondly, he distinguishes between two analytical perspectives, which he calls ‘noumenal’ and ‘phenomenal.’ Thirdly, by taking the phenomenal perspective, the author shows that transhumanism can be classified into four different categories, namely: quasi-Nietzschean, Nietzschean, a-Nietzschean, and anti-Nietzschean. Finally, he provides historical examples of each single type of transhumanism. This way, the article also contributes to the history of transhumanist thought.
This paper focuses on the recent neo-liberal transformation in the Romanian education system and analyzes the genealogy of a new form of academic governance that has been implemented in higher education institutions in the past decade. It examines the role quality indicators and supplementary funding have played in the gradual embedding and naturalization of neo-liberal disciplinary reforms in universities and the specific quality enhancement policies that aimed at increasing the productivity of academic workers by stimulating the competition among them. The main argument of the paper is that in order to understand the extensive academic management based on scientometrics and recurrent evaluation of academics we need to look at the structural mechanisms that have shaped higher education institutions in accordance with market rules and at the generalization of competitiveness throughout the system in the context of budget cuts and decreasing resources allocated to education.

1 Introduction This paper advances science overlay mapping processes. The intent is to provide the research communities using scientometrics with an improved methodology to generate overlay maps ( Rafols, Porter, & Leydesdorff, 2010 ). An overlay map is a global map of science over which a subset of publications is projected, thus allowing the visualization of disciplinary scope for the scientific production of a given organization, individuals, territory, etc. Such maps can help analysts and readers grasp the mix of disciplines engaging a given topic or the
