Using Research Indicators

This guide provides information about indicators that can be used as a measure of research performance

Collaboration metrics

Collaboration metrics provide information on the research partnerships of academic entities. An entity can be an institution, a research group or an individual researcher.

The academic collaboration metrics use publication and citation data to record scholarly activity at three levels of geographic criteria: same institution, national and international.

The academic-corporate collaboration metrics use publication and citation data to record scholarly activity between a researcher and other sectors such as private industry, government and NGOs.

Collaboration metrics start to become meaningful with more than 20 views. Percentage comparisons should be used to enable comparison between fields.
