International Conference and Trade Fair
"Bibliometric Standards in the Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities: Current State and Future Trends"
University of Regensburg
September 18 – 20, 2012
Measuring science qualitatively and quantitatively is anything but trivial. It is possible to quantitatively gather research output (i.e. publications and their perception), however, bibliometric procedures cannot arbitrarily be applied to the respective fields of expertise as both the publication process and management process of these proceedings differ immensely depending on the field.
Within the scope of this conference, the recent developments in bibliometric procedures in particular areas of research are to be discussed. The main focus will be on the opportunity to determine scientific publications in the humanities and their reception in research. This innovative field of activity will be compared to the “state of the art”- methods in the natural sciences as well.
The conference is addressed to bibliometricians, librarians, scientists from all fields, information providers and decision makers in science and research.
The presentations and conference workshops will be held in both German and English.
