Prof. Dr. Peter van den Besselaar studierte Maschinenbau, Mathematik und Philosophie an den Universitäten von Eindhoven, Utrecht und Amsterdam. Er begann seine berufliche Laufbahn als wissenschaftlicher Assistent und Professor am Institut für soziale Informatik der Universität Amsterdam. Im Jahr 2002 wechselte er an die Akademie der Wissenschaften (KNAW), wo er Direktor des Niederländischen Datenarchivs für Sozialwissenschaften wurde. In 2005 gründete Peter die Abteilung für Wissenschaftsforschung des Rathenau Instituut (ebenfalls KNAW). Von 2004 bis 2010 war er Professor für Kommunikationswissenschaften an der Universität von Amsterdam und danach Professor für Organisationswissenschaften an der Freien Universität Amsterdam. Peter hat zahlreiche Publikationen zu einem breiten Spektrum von Themen der soziale Informatik und der Wissenschaftsforschung veröffentlicht. Seit Oktober 2020 ist er im Auftrag des DZHW als kommissarischer Leiter der Abteilung Forschungssystem und Wissenschaftsdynamik tätig.

The Costs of Competition in Distributing Scarce Research Funds.

Schweiger, G., Barnett, A., van den Besselaar, P., Bornmann, L., De Block, A., ... & Conix, S. (2024).
The Costs of Competition in Distributing Scarce Research Funds. Arxiv Preprint. Ithaca, NY: Arxiv.
Abstract

Research funding systems are not isolated systems - but embedded in a larger scientific system with an enormous influence on the system. This paper aims to analyze the allocation of competitive research funding from different perspectives: How reliable are decision processes for funding? What are the economic costs of competitive funding? How does competition for funds affect doing risky research? How do competitive funding environments affect scientists themselves, and which ethical issues must be considered? We attempt to identify gaps in our knowledge and propose recommendations for policymakers and funding agencies, including empirical experiments of decision processes and collection of data on these processes.

What is research funding, how does it influence research, and how is it recorded? Key dimensions of variation.

Thelwall, M., Simrick, S., Viney, I., & van den Besselaar, P. (2023).
What is research funding, how does it influence research, and how is it recorded? Key dimensions of variation. Scientometrics , 128, 6085-6106.
Abstract

Evaluating the effects of some or all academic research funding is difficult because of the many different and overlapping sources, types, and scopes. It is therefore important to identify the key aspects of research funding so that funders and others assessing its value do not overlook them. This article outlines 18 dimensions through which funding varies substantially, as well as three funding records facets.

Evidence and consequences of academic drift in the field of dental research: A bibliometric analysis 2000-2015.

van der Wouden, P., Van der Heijden, G., Shemesh, H., & van den Besselaar, P. (2022).
Evidence and consequences of academic drift in the field of dental research: A bibliometric analysis 2000-2015. BDJ Open, 8(3).
Abstract

The mission of academic excellence has resulted in a science system that incentivises publications within high impact, often basic science journals, and less in application-oriented journals. For the dental research field this so-called academic drift can result in a research portfolio that moves away from research that serves dental healthcare. Using bibliometric data, our findings suggest that the dental research portfolio is influenced by academic drift. This academic drift has increased the disbalance towards basic science, and away from care oriented research. It presents a challenge for the scientific progress in dental healthcare services.
