7 Trends Biblio/sciento/informetrics as big data science More (Large) datasets electronically available Combination of large datasets More interest in research assessment, metrics Multi-dimensional approaches, integral views Linking components within a system Comparing, benchmarking Emphasis on accountability, productivity, societal impact

8 Important topics in research assessment 1. Institutional performance and rankings 2. Societal and technological impact 3. National/regional scientific development 4. From data to models

9 UNESCO Report on HE in SE Asia PRE- DEVELOPMENT Low research activity without clear policy or structural funding of research. A bibliometric model for capturing the state of scientific development BUILDING- UP Collaborations with developed countries are established. National researchers enter international scientific networks. CONSOLIDATION AND EXPANSION The country develops its own scientific infrastructure. The amount of funds available for research increases. INTERNATIONALISATI ON Research institutions in the country start functioning as fully fledged partners, and increasingly take the lead in international collaborations.

10 Publications & Doctoral Enrollment The number of publications generated within a country increases in almost linear fashion with doctoral enrolment. This suggests that doctoral students play a key role in the production of a country s publication output. # Publications (Scopus) # Doctoral enrolments

16 Standards? 1 Mapping techniques: towards a winner like the Mercator projection? (with Felix Moya) 2 Indicators: depend upon object, aspect and objective of assessment 3 Need for user-oriented state-of-the-art reports on practices and methods, their pros and cons 4 Need for concordance tables and consistency of classification systems (C.
