Measuring Science with Meaningful Metrics

Organizers: Koen Frenken (UU), Paul Wouters (UL)

This session aims to further the discussion about the use of bibliometrics in evaluative practices. Following the Science-in-Transition and other debates, the use of bibliometrics to assess and evaluate research, researchers and the institutions they work for is highly contested. One the one hand there is an increasing number of critics per se. On the other hand, there are calls for broadening bibliometrics to measure not only scientific output and impact, but also societal output and impact. This session brings together researchers working in this area from Utrecht University, Leiden University and the Rathenau Institute. I
