Bibliometric services

Topics illustrated by means of bibliometric analysis include:

  • the number of publications per year
  • the quality of publications, i.e. their Finnish Publication Forum classification
  • the visibility of publications, i.e. the number of publications in citation databases (Scopus and Web of Science)
  • the impact of publications, i.e. the number of citations they have received
  • researcher's cooperation network, i.e. the number of co-authors and affiliated organizations in publications.

The library's information services conduct bibliometric analyses free of charge to support decision-making at faculties, departments and research groups.

You can order publication analyses from bibliometriikka@oulu.fi

You should reserve 1-3 weeks for the analysis to be completed.
