Heuristics as conceptual lens for understanding and studying the usage of bibliometrics in research evaluation

Lutz Bornmann, Julian N. Marewski
2019 Scientometrics  
Relying on heuristics does not mean trading off accuracy against effort: while reducing complexity, heuristics can yield better decisions than more information-greedy procedures in many decision environments  ...  We outline the fast-and-frugal heuristics research program, provide examples of past empirical work on heuristics outside the field of bibliometrics, explain why heuristics may be especially suitable for  ...  distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided you give appropriate credit to the original author(s) and the source, provide a link to the Creative Commons license, and indicate if changes were  ...

Creativity in Science and the Link to Cited References: Is the Creative Potential of Papers Reflected in their Cited References? [article]

Iman Tahamtan, Lutz Bornmann
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Several authors have proposed that a large number of unusual combinations of cited references in a paper point to its high creative potential (or novelty).  ...  The current study addresses this question on the basis of several case studies from the field of scientometrics. We identified some landmark papers in this field.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank all authors of the landmark papers in scientometrics for their time and efforts in supporting our study.  ...

Do all citations value the same? Valuing citations by the value of the citing items [article]

Cristiano Giuffrida, Giovanni Abramo, Ciriaco Andrea D'Angelo
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Bibliometricians have long recurred to citation counts to measure the impact of publications on the advancement of science.  ...  This work takes an alternate approach to resolving the underlying problem: the proposal is to value citations by the impact of the citing articles.  ...  On the chance to become highly cited only beyond the standard bibliometric time horizon.

New publication cultures in the humanities: exploring the paradigm shift

2015 ChoiceReviews  
In the Humanities, the lifecycle of research is much longer than in hard sciences since earlier findings are often reinterpreted rather than superseded and standard works may never become outdated.  ...  A specialist may work on them and publish them much faster and much better than anyone else.  ...  That is why in the f inal phase of the DobeS funding initiative, researchers were not only invited to submit documentation projects, but also projects which use the DobeS archive for scientific purposes  ...
