Subject: [ISSI] Call for Web Indicators for Innovation Systems papers

Web Indicators for Innovation Systems

This is a call for papers by the WISER project (http://www.wiserweb.org/)
for Web Indicators for Innovation Systems to be published in a special
issue of Research Evaluation in August 2006.

Research Evaluation is a peer-reviewed, international journal. Papers in
this journal range from the evaluation of individual research project to
inter-country comparisons of research performance. Research projects,
researchers, research centres, and the types of research output are all
relevant. It includes public and private sectors, natural and social
sciences. The term 'evaluation' applies to all stages from priorities and
proposals, through the monitoring of on-going projects and programmes, to
the use of the results of research.

The focus of this special issue will be on the use of web based methods to
construct indicators that may assist analysts and policy makers to evaluate
research activities, structures and performance of e-science and innovation

Examples of areas of interest:

- Evaluation of the size, visibility, linkages, etc of academic and
research organization web sites
- Co-link analysis of a research area (biotechnology, public policy, etc.)
- Uses and abuses of search engines in evaluation processes
- Content analysis of web pages
- Downloads from digital libraries and open access research publication as
an indicator of the future impact of research publications
