Bibliometric analysis of HRB-supported publications 2000-12
This report was commissioned by the Health Research Board (HRB) which contracted Thomson Reuters (Evidence) to conduct a bibliometric analysis of HRB-supported publications between 2000 and 2012.
HRB-supported publications were matched to the Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge and supplemented with data from the funding acknowledgement text, and then linked with HRB funding schemes and grant types.
This report analyses trends in research output and citation impact (Section 4) using HRB-supported journal papers. These are articles, reviews and some peer-reviewed proceedings papers used in citation analyses. It analyses the performance of HRB-supported papers by HRB strategic pillar areas and funding schemes (Section 5) and Web of Science journal categories (Section 6). It also analyses patterns of domestic and international co-authorship (Section 7) by volume and citation impact.
