Bibliometrics Classes at the NIH Library

If you are interested in analyzing scientific publication output to identify productivity, collaboration, research topics, and citation impact, join us for a special Introduction to Bibliometrics training series this September! The NIH Library, in collaboration with Fogarty International Center (FIC), is offering a series of three online bibliometrics classes:

  • Introduction to Bibliometrics
    September 6, 11:00 am ‒ 12:30 pm
    This introductory 1.5-hour class will cover key bibliometric theories and concepts, providing an overview of different types of metrics (including alternative metrics), and a closer look at the limitations and potential misuse of bibliometrics.
  • Bibliometrics Data Sources and Tools
    September 7, 11:00 am ‒ 12:30 pm
    This introductory 1.5-hour class will compare data sources for bibliometric analyses, including Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, and Dimensions. The class will also introduce a toolkit of online resources for network analysis and dashboard creation and provide an overview of tools for bibliometric analysis from the NIH Office of Portfolio Analysis (OPA) and subscription tools from Clarivate.
  • Bibliometrics Use Case Walkthrough
    September 8, 11:00 am ‒ 12:30 pm
    During this 1.5-hour class, Ezinne A. Akudinobi, MPH, from FIC, will provide an overview of a bibliometric analysis conducted to evaluate U.S. and Sub-Saharan African authorship in FIC-funded research about Sub-Saharan Africa between 2008–2020. Joelle Mornini of the NIH Library will provide a demonstration on locating FIC-funded publications in Web of Science, analyzing the data in Web of Science and InCites to locate country-specific metrics and first/last authorship data, and visualization of co-authorship data in VoSViewer.

The NIH Library's Bibliometric Service offers publication analysis services to NIH staff, including creation of customized reports, tutorials on bibliometrics tools and databases, and group trainings. Contact Joelle Mornini, Joelle.Mornini@nih.gov, for more information.
