Bibliometric Services

The NIH Library's Bibliometric Services Program provides publication analysis services to NIH staff. We use analytics to help you understand and evaluate the publications produced by scientists, grant programs, and institutions at NIH and around the world. We provide consultations on designing and using bibliometric analyses, training on bibliometric theory and techniques, and customized analysis designed to meet your specific needs.

What We Do

Measure productivity

We identify publications by scientists, laboratories, and grant programs to help you understand how much research they have produced and how that may have changed over time.

Detect Collaboration

Detect Collaboration

We generate publication based co-authorship and co-funding networks at various scales to help you understand which scientists and institutions are, or are not, working together to produce research publications.

Identify Research Topics

Identify Research Topics

We analyze the topical and structural links among publications to help you understand what papers by a laboratory, program, or discipline are about, how they are related, and how they have changed over time.

Assess Citation Impact

Assess Citation Impact

We calculate citation impact scores using the latest bibliometric techniques and put those scores into context to help you understand how useful your laboratory's or program's publications have been to other scientists.
