Research output evaluation of two University Departments in Greece with the use of bibliometric indicators

  • G. Zachos


The results of a study for evaluating research performance of two Greek University Departments of Mathematics are presented. In order to achieve this elements from the Sussex and Leiden methodologies of constructing and using bibliometric indicators were used. Comparison of the two groups were based on their similarities. The convergence of bibliometric indicators procedure as applied in Leiden methodology together with a number new bibliometric indicators were used. Results shown that bibliometric indicators if applied properly may give very interesting information on the research performance and nature of research carried out in University Departments.
