Madrid, February 21st, 2011 We are pleased to announce the recent release of the Scimago Lab’s Blog which using an informative approach aims at promoting research analytics trend topics to the media worldwide. Our idea is to make this blog become an interface between outstanding stories and voices from Bibliometrics, Scientometrics, Visualization Techniques, Usability and Research Analytics as well as any area in which Scimago Lab is involved and Mass Media / Public Opinion.
The blog is available at: http://www.scimagolab.com/blog
The list below shows an incomplete list of themes of interest to Scimago Lab to give you a sense of what you can expect to find along the blog’s posts: Research Career Advancement, University Rankings, Scientific Impact, Information Visualization, Research Fronts, Sociology of Science, Science Technology and Innovation Knowledge, Research & Development, Scientific Visibility, Journal Metrics, Information Systems, Information Management, etc...
We intend to provide a place for informed discussion so you are invited to participate either through comments or if you want to write a post send us an email to the address below.
The blog starts up with an interesting post by Prof. Félix de Moya Anegón who analyzes the Normalized Impact Indicator as a tool to evaluate the research performance of universities and other research-devoted institutions.
