Cutting-edge bibliometric analysis and indicator development to inform your complex S&T policymaking and activity assessments

Science-Metrix is an internationally recognized leader in the assessment of S&T policy and activities using bibliometric methods. We work for government, educational, non-profit or private organizations that perform scientific research or are involved with research funding and management.

What we do

We provide analytical and practical expertise to support performance measurement efforts for all types of S&T, R&D and innovation activities. We pair bibliometric data with advanced analytical solutions and complementary data sources, such as program and funding data and data from national statistical offices and intergovernmental organizations. We specialize in crafting tailored studies and bibliometric indicators in close consultation with our partners and clients.

Since 2002, we have successfully completed more than 500 bibliometric, research and evaluation contracts for dozens of organizations worldwide. In the course of these contracts, our team has done groundbreaking work in measuring and assessing the prevalence of open access publications, women’s participation in science, and the policy implications of researcher collaboration across borders, sectors and disciplines. We have also developed a world-renowned classification of scientific fields, which can be mapped to many other classifications, depending on client needs. We are also actively expanding the range of data sources underlying our work to better capture the longer-term socio-economic impacts of research.

How can we help you?

By drawing on our knowledge base, we can work to address your study’s established specifications or help you to develop customized metrics and studies to assess and demonstrate S&T impacts and trends—including resolving the difficult question of attribution. We can also design and implement mixed-methods evaluations of science-based programs and initiatives, which we typically undertake in partnership with organizations with complementary strengths. Our services can inform your evidence-based decision-making, strategic planning, and outcome and impact assessments.
