Call for Posters and Invitation

From September 18 - 20, 2012, the University of Regensburg is holding the first international bibliometrics conference and trade fair “Bibliometrics 2012” with a special focus on the humanities and social sciences.

Bibliometrics and rankings have become central topics in every scientific community. Scientists, heads of institutes, rectors, presidents, chancellors and decision-makers rely on key quantitative figures for successfully executing their tasks. Therefore, the quantification of scientific output has become a crucial question within the field of scientific management. Whereas a myriad of useful indicators have already been developed in sciences and medicine, and a reliable corpus of data is available in these fields, the situation in the humanities and social sciences is completely different. Due to a heterogeneous publication culture and a lack of data base, bibliometrics is still at its very beginning in these disciplines.


Topics of the Conference

Please submit contributions on the following key topics of the conference:

  • Suitable data bases for different disciplines
  • Bibliometics for monographs
  • Availability of data in particular fields in the sciences, humanities and social sciences
  • New indicators and methods of measuring impacts and methods: The second generation of bibliometric indicators
  • The application of bibliometrics for evaluations - possibilities and limits of multidisciplinary evaluations: Emphasis on the humanities and social sciences.
  • Bibliometrics in the arts
  • The interplay of bibliometric indicators and other key figures
  • The development of bibliometrics: a compilation and monitoring of trends and latest topics of research
  • Bibliometrics in the Internet age, electronic publishing and Open Access
  • Text-  and data mining in bibliometrics
  • The necessity of standards in bibliometrics
