Just pimping the CV? The feasibility of ready-to-use bibliometric indicators to enrich cirriculum vitae

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearchpeer-review


This poster investigates if ready-to-use bibliometric indicators can be used by individual scholars to enrich their curriculum vitae. Selected indicators were tested in four different fields and across 5 different academic seniorities. The results show performance in bibliometric evaluation is highly individual and using indicators as “benchmarks” unwise. Further the simple calculation of cites per publication per years-since-first-publication is a more informative indicator than the ready-to-use ones and can also be used to estimate if it is at all worth the scholar’s time to apply indicators to their CV.
