Journal Evaluation – some challenges:
9
• I’m a publishing author in a niche area, how can I compare with
researchers in another scientific field?
• How can I get a value that reflects citation behaviour in my research
area?
• It’s 2010 – why can I only get a ranking relevant to 2008?
• Where can I find the data that have been used to generate this
number?
• The Impact Factor does not cover the journal I’m publishing in. What
now?
Summary:
Difficult to compare
Not recent enough
Lack of clarity of data origin
Lack of coverage

Spotlight
WHAT IS SPOTLIGHT ?
16
1. Definition:
• Spotlight is a web based solution to identify the
institutional research strengths. With the aim to assess
the institutional strategy of research management
• It is NOT an evaluation tool for authors or papers
2. What we define as a research strength
(competency)?
• Areas of research (multi- or single-discipline) where our
institution has a significant quantity of papers (from one
or more authors) published during the last 5 years
• So some highly cited authors may not be shown...
WHAT IS SPOTLIGHT ?
17
3. How we define the areas of research?
• Not by: disciplines, key words or journals.
• By the CO-CITATION ANALYSIS and the yearly creation of the
map of science (Klavans & Boyack).

4. What is the base of co-citation analysis?
•
•
•
We group all the papers indexed in SCOPUS during the last 5
years in clusters (approx 90.000) based on their references.
We select the clusters in which our institution has a significant
number of papers (compared with the largest competitor world
wide - RAS).
We group the selected clusters in competencies based on the
references of the papers published by our institution
SAME CLUSTERS; DIFFERENT GROUPINGS = DISTINCTIVE
COMPETENCIES

Comparing the years?
62
The reasons comparison of maps year-to-year has some limitations, is because the
algorithm that drives Spotlight goes back to five years of prior articles as an analytic
window. When a new year map is created, roughly 20% of the articles (i.e. from 2004)
are dropped and a new full year of data (2009) is added. In future releases, we are
committed to making it easier to compare maps year-to-year by introducing time-series
analysis capabilities into Spotlight.
