    research links through the output ratio that has been produced in collaboration with foreign institutions The values are computed by analyzing the institution s output whose affiliations include more than one country address Normalized Impact NI Normalized Impact scores indicate the scientific impact that institutions have over the scientific community In order to obtain a fair measurement of such impact its calculation removes the influence due to institutions size and research profile making it ideal for comparing research performance Normalized Impact values show the ratio between the average scientific impact of an institution and the world average impact of publications of the same time frame document type and subject category The values are expressed in percentages and show the relationship of the institution s average impact to the world average which is 1 i e a score of 0 8 means the institution is cited 20 below world average and 1 3 means the institution is cited 30 above world average Normalized Impact is computed using the methodology established by the Karolinska Intitutet in Sweden where it is named Item oriented field normalized citation score average The long name used is because the normalization of the citation values is done on an individual article level Further information on the methodology at Bibliometric Handbook for Karolinska Institutet High Quality Publications Q1 Ratio of publications an institution publishes in the world most influential scholarly journals Journals considered for this indicator are those ranked in the first quartile 25 in their categories as ordered by SCImago Journal Rank SJR indicator Félix de Moya Anegón is Research Professor at the Institute of Public Goods and Policies IPP from the Spanish National Research Council CSIC his academic interests include scientometrics bibliometrics research evaluation and science policy he has published around 100 papers in these fields He is SCImago Research Group s main researcher where he has led renowned bibliometic projects including Scimago Journal Country Rank Scimago Institution Rankings and The Atlas of Science Prof De Moya is also advisor for Science Policy issues for national organizations of science and technology and research institutions around the world 6 Responses CSIC researcher says June 21 2011 at 9 06 pm Bibliometric studies always present the same problem they are one dimensional They only observe the publications activity It is an important indicator to measure the research activity but it is not the only one For instance what is the matter with patents CSIC is the first patenting institution in Spain it has a strong applied science activity The Instituto de Tecnología Química ITQ is the most important institue of the CSIC in patents and transfer technology as IQAC and IETCC What are their ranks This is the same if we talk about books competitive funds thesis etc Remember all these indicators are the real performance indicators and the bibliometrics ones are just a representative part of these indicators Talking about rankings you say Output values are affected by institution sizes and research profiles among others factors so

    scientific collaboration between researchers or Bornmann Waltman s geographical density maps There are many more examples However I will be posting on a different kind of map a Scientific Collaboration Map that overtakes issues regarding the topographical rigidity exhibited by the former The proposed maps represent the nearly 3 000 Research Institutions which account for about 80 of the world scientific output In the picture institutions are linked one another based on Research Collaboration as stated on paper affiliations the list of institutions in the chart is exactly the same to the one used to elaborate the Scimago Institutions Rankings World Report 2010 According to the algorithm used to make the picture collaboration links act as gravitational forces in such a way that the closeness between nodes and clusters represents collaboration strength each node represents an institution and colors symbolize world regions Scientific collaboration tends to take place among neighbors preferably but not exclusively so one might expect that a graph illustrating collaboration links among Research Institutions should group them into regions as in the figure This regional cluster formations besides highlighting intra regional vs inter regional collaboration strength helps us analyze the degree of centrality reached by the different regions of the world within the global network of Research Institutions You can observe not only size differences in regional sub networks but also how central are different regions within scientific knowledge generation and communication processes Reputed vs Emerging Science In these kind of representations centered positions tends to reflect higher reputation levels while peripheral ones imply larger local collaboration patterns As a consequence researchers belonging to centered institutions are requested to collaborate by researchers from all around the world As it was to be expected Research Institutions from Northern America USA and Canada and Europe compete for central positions These regions have intense research collaboration links as the wide contact front between institutions from both regions highlights Meanwhile the self organizational system of World Science keeps on pushing outwards to traditionally peripheral regions Asia Latin America Middle East and Africa despite these regions currently exhibit larger Growth Rates than central ones In fact despite the impressive increasingly important role played by Asia in Global Research Outputs mainly due to Chinese Science grown their institutions are still far from reaching the reputation levels achieved by some European and Northern American s Research Institutions hence the outlying position showed by the Asian Cluster It is so even though Asia and Northern America have strong collaborations links affecting many Asiatic Countries Latin America Oceania and Middle East These regions maintain priority collaboration links at a regional scale with at least two regions each Latin America with Europe mainly Spain and Portugal and Northern America in this case the picture shows that Latin America Europe collaboration links are so intense that the boundary between both regions is not well defined in the map Similarly the deep links that Australian and New Zeeland Research Institution has with Northern American counterparts lead to the blurred

    reaching NI scores higher than the world average values higher than 1 are concentrated in North America Western Europe and Australia New Zeeland we must conclude that if the geographic bias in Scientific Outputs is high it is even higher the bias affecting the Scientific Impact Impact can be considered to reflect the use researchers make of the scientific knowledge previously generated With this in mind the map suggests that those regions that produce the most Western Europe and North America firstly use the knowledge being generated in their area justifying this way the concentration of large impacts in highly productive regions and implying that Research Institutions in the most productive regions worldwide accumulate a reputational capital which is due to the geographical context where they are and on the other hand that is unattainable for institutions located in less productive regions It is still to be seen what will happen with China a newcomer to the elite of more productive scientific countries in the world Put another way the neighborhood of a Research Institution affects the scientific reputation it can achieve in global terms unless it can go beyond its neighborhood through inter regional alliances with reputed institutions from highly productive regions Scientific Dependence To developing countries an unintended consequence of the need to collaborate with researchers from highly productive regions is what it could be called scientific dependence Even though it is difficult to measure the role played by researchers in scientific works by just studying the affiliation fields what we really know is that certain Research Institutions show extremely high rates of International Collaboration IC which indeed can be associated to situations of scientific dependence I e when an Institution s IC reaches or exceeds 80 of its total output in such a way that its exclusive
