Abstract

Die Einschätzung der Qualität von wissenschaftlicher Forschung ist sowohl für die Forschungsgemeinde als auch für die Öffentlichkeit wichtig. Trotz der Kritik ist eine quantitative Beurteilung notwendig. In der Wissenschaft spielen die Zitate und die daraus abgeleiteten Impaktfaktoren eine wichtige Rolle. Dieser Artikel stellt drei Zitationsdatenbanken und ihre Funktionsweise vor: das Web of Science, welches den Social Science Citation Index enthält, Google Scholar und RePEc. Darüber hinaus werden die Vor- und Nachteile des Impaktfaktors, einer der wichtigsten Kennzahlen für wissenschaftliche Zeitschriften, herausgearbeitet. Mit Fokus auf die Wirtschaftswissenschaften ist sicherlich das RePEc-Netzwerk das am besten geeignete Forum zur Beurteilung von (quantitativen) Maßzahlen sowohl für Zeitschriften als auch für Working-Paper-Reihen. Jedoch ist die tatsächliche Erfassung der Zitate noch unvollständig, so dass alle Kennzahlen noch als experimentell betrachtet werden sollten.
