Bibliometrics is the quantitative study of formal scientific communication.
Its main object of study consists primarily of research publications. Today, bibliometric methods are used mainly to describe research structures on national, regional or institutional levels, and compare different publishing units with regard to their impact on research.
The University Library offers basic help and guidance regarding publication strategy, elementary bibliometric analyses. Contact the Library if you want us to arrange a lecture on bibliometrics and bibliometric tools for subject and journal analyses, or if you want individual guidance concerning these matters.
