Evaluating universities using simple scientometric research-output metrics: Total citation counts per university for a retrospective seven-year rolling sample
AbstractWe advocate a scientometric, top-down and institution-based research-assessment methodology that is based on total citations accumulated from all publications associated with a specific university during the survey period. The exercise could be done every year using a rolling seven-year retrospective sample and should be performed by at least two independent auditors. Identification of elite ‘revolutionary-science’ institutions could be accomplished using a metric derived from the distribution of science Nobel Prizes. Copyright , Beech Tree Publishing.
