Abstract

Scholarly publishing lives on traditioned terminology that gives meaning to subjects such as authors, inhouse editors and external guest editors, artifacts such as articles, journals, special issues, and collected editions, or practices of acquisition, selection, and review. These subjects, artifacts, and practices ground the constitution of scholarly discourse. And yet, the meaning ascribed to each of these terms shifts, blurs, or is disguised as publishing culture shifts, which becomes manifest in new digital publishing technology, new forms of publishing management, and new forms of scholarly knowledge production. As a result, we may come to over- or underestimate changes in scholarly communication based on traditioned [...]

Hochschulen als Partner – Strategien für den Feldzugang einer Längsschnittstudie über Promovierende und Promovierte.

Hochschulen als Partner – Strategien für den Feldzugang einer Längsschnittstudie über Promovierende und Promovierte. Das Hochschulwesen, 2021(5+6), 164-170.
Abstract

Recent years show an increasing demand for reliable data about Early Career Researchers expressed by Higher Education Institutions as well as political decision makers. At the same time it has become more difficult for empirical higher education researchers who produce such data to get access to the field. For many of these studies the support of HEI´s is needed to systematically reach the target groups. However, HEI´s often react reluctantly to corresponding inquiries by researchers, because of the effort involved and diverging expectations regarding the studies’ thematic priorities and the presentation of results. The article outlines and assesses in this context the strategic approach of the National Academics Panel Study (Nacaps).

Standard-relevant publications: Evidence, processes and influencing factors.

Blind, K., & Fenton, A. (2021).
Standard-relevant publications: Evidence, processes and influencing factors. Scientometrics. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11192-021-04210-8
Abstract

This paper introduces the concept of standard-relevant publications, complementary to standard-essential patents and framed by the concept of knowledge utilization. By analyzing the reference lists of the around 20,000 standards released by ISO, authors of scientific papers cited in standards who are working at German institutions were identified. The institutions include universities, independent research societies, ministerial research institutes and companies. Almost thirty interviews were conducted with the most-cited of these authors. The interviews addressed the processes by which scientific publications come to be referenced in standards, and the motivations, the barriers and the effects of this.

Citation analysis of Ph.D. theses with data from Scopus and Google Books.

Citation analysis of Ph.D. theses with data from Scopus and Google Books. Scientometrics, 126, 9431-9456 (online first). https://doi.org/10.1007/s11192-021-04173-w
Abstract

This study investigates the potential of citation analysis of Ph.D. theses to obtain valid and useful early career performance indicators at the level of university departments. For German theses from 1996 to 2018 the suitability of citation data from Scopus and Google Books is studied and found to be sufficient to obtain quantitative estimates of early career researchers’ performance at departmental level in terms of scientific recognition and use of their dissertations as reflected in citations. Scopus and Google Books citations complement each other and have little overlap. Individual theses’ citation counts are much higher for those awarded a dissertation award than others. Departmental level estimates of citation impact agree ...

Identifying constitutive articles of cumulative dissertation theses by bilingual text similarity. Evaluation of similarity methods on a new short text task.

Donner, P. (2021).
Identifying constitutive articles of cumulative dissertation theses by bilingual text similarity. Evaluation of similarity methods on a new short text task. Quantitative Science Studies, 2(3). https://doi.org/10.1162/qss_a_00152
Abstract

Cumulative dissertations are doctoral theses comprised of multiple published articles. For studies of publication activity and citation impact of early career researchers it is important to identify these articles and link them to their associated theses. Using a new benchmark data set, this paper reports on experiments of measuring the bilingual textual similarity between, on the one hand, titles and keywords of doctoral theses, and, on the other hand, articles’ titles and abstracts. The tested methods are cosine similarity and L1 distance in the Vector Space Model (VSM) as baselines, the language-indifferent methods Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) and trigram similarity, and the language-aware methods fastText and Random Indexing (RI)...

Editors between support and control by the digital infrastructure — Tracing the peer review process with data from an editorial management system.

Abstract

Many journals now rely on editorial management systems, which are supposed to support the administration and decision making of editors, while aiming at making the process of communication faster and more transparent to both reviewers and authors. Yet, little is known about how these infrastructures support, stabilize, transform or change existing editorial practices. By exploring process generated data from a publisher’s editorial management system, we investigate the ways by which the digital infrastructure is used and how it represents the different realms of the process of peer review. How does the infrastructure support, strengthen or restrain editorial agency for administrating the process?
