The Institute for Scientific Information Unveils First Global Research Report

The Institute for Scientific Information, part of Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science Group, has released the first of its Global Research Reports, a series of publications for researchers in academia, corporations, and other areas that aims to inform, generate debate, and show the information potential of research data.

The report, Profiles Not Metrics,draws attention to the information that is lost when data about researchers and their institutions are squeezed into simplified metrics or a league table. Research is not one-dimensional: the process is complex and no two projects are identical. Yet, to the dismay of many, the global research community is surrounded by analyses that claim to measure relative performance among people, publications and organizations, disregarding the counter arguments offered by informed analysts,” according to the press release. In addition, the report takes a look at four analysis types that can obscure research performance when used incorrectly and offers four alternatives.

For more information, read the press release.
