The need for publication analysis services is growing rapidly across a range
of academic, medical, and special libraries. Such services aim to provide
evidence-based applications to assist researchers in determining the nature
of their research influence, to support administrators in evaluating the
scientific research of laboratories and research groups, and to provide
insight into the structure and evolution of scientific research. 

This workshop will provide intellectual discussions and hands-on practice
related to publication analysis focusing on three subtopics: 

*        Overview: What is publication analysis? 

*        Benchmarking individuals and research groups: Citation impact

*        Analyzing and visualizing collaboration and topic networks.

The instructors will encourage discussion among attendees and lead them
through a range of exercises to build their knowledge and skills in this
area of study. 

Attendees will use the Web of Science, Science of Science
<>  (Sci2) (), and Gephi
<>  tools during this workshop.

Limited Seating, so please  <>
