We performed a critical analysis of the South African scientific serials literature, including ‘internationaljournals indexed by international bibliographical databases, such as Thomson Scientific's Web of Science and other citation indices, as well as ‘local’ journals that are processed for these sources. A ‘composite extended journal impact factor’ was applied in order to compute robust measures of international citation impact that can cope w...

The Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers (NSECs) operate in the context of a National Science Foundation (NSF) program that represents one of the key instruments of nanotechnology policy in the USA. In this article, we report on a study aimed at understanding the mechanisms by which this collection of centers contributes to the realization of the goals of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). The study is focused on the program level so we are not considering th...

Research that integrates the social and natural sciences is vital to address many societal challenges, yet is difficult to arrange, conduct, and disseminate. This article analyses the cross-disciplinary character of the research supported by a unique US National Science Foundation program on Human and Social Dynamics (HSD). It presents evidence that research publications deriving from this support chiefly pertain to the Social and Behavioral Sciences, bu...

This paper seeks to establish the degree of presence and potential impact of ethnic minority scientists on UK science. It does this by examining their published outputs (present in SCI). Ethnic minority researchers were identified and classed within seven distinct groups based on their surname. A fractional count of their papers was used to establish which fields they research into, what types of research they conduct (from basic to applied) and what is the potential ...

This study focuses on the development of disciplinary structure in China’s top research universities. Using the science structures of Mainland China, the world, and the world’s top 10 universities as three reference standards, we measure the disciplinary structure ‘distance’ between the Chinese ‘985 universities’ and the references, and analyze whether the 985 universities are moving toward or away from the reference groups (RG) in terms of disciplinary structure. The results show ...

The capacity to recognize the contribution of individual researchers and their organizational unit is likely to be at odds with the purpose of a national research assessment, due to the broader approach to identifying research strengths and its classification at disciplinary levels. The Australian research assessment exercise, Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), is devised to determine research quality in this wider context. To explore the impact...

This paper presents the experience of the Ibero-American Network on Science and Technology Indicators (RICYT) with an original strategy for producing S&T indicators on a regional scale. This strategy has proved adequate to cope with the complexities and heterogeneity of Latin American countries. Furthermore, it allows data comparability. In terms of the difficulties posed in achieving a balance between the involvement in processes requiring international comparability and the need ...

This article describes findings from an evaluation of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) International Research Fellowship Program (IRFP), which supports postdoctoral research fellowships of 9–24 months in locations outside the USA. The evaluation assessed the role of IRFP in seeding productive international research collaborations for researchers early in their careers. Data used in the evaluation included the NSF program data and survey dat...

A bibliometric evaluation was made of research performance in modern language and linguistics research. Separate analyses were made for language and linguistics and for literature components of each language in the study. The study covered both publications directed at a national or international scholarly output and publications destined for the general public. The latter accounted for 8–73% of the output, and were particularly important in literature output. Publication an...

This study found that the majority of the publications by researchers at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in Nigeria are either journal articles or conference / workshop proceedings and English is the predominant language used. About 37% of the publications are single-authored while about 49% are written by two or three authors. The citation counts for a sample of the journal articles were traced using the Science Citation Index. The r...
