Academic Spectra: A Visualization Method for Research Assessment
Fred Y. Y.
Cybermetrics, 14 (2010): Issue 1. Paper 1

A new visualization method for research assessment, called the academic 
spectrum, is introduced. Two types of academic spectra are 
distinguished: field spectra and time spectra. Using appropriate scaling 
factors these spectra facilitate comparisons between scientometric 
indicators such as the h-index, the total number of citations received 
and the impact. Academic spectra can be calculated for journals, 
countries, research institutes, whole universities and single 
researchers alike. They are meant to help the scientometric practitioner 
to get a first impression of the data.
