National research assessment exercises: A comparison of peer review and bibliometrics rankings

by Giovanni Abramo, Ciriaco Andrea D'Angelo, Flavia Di Costa
Scientometrics ()


Development of bibliometric techniques has reached such a level as to suggest their integration or total substitution for classic peer review in the national research assessment exercises, as far as the hard sciences are concerned. In this work we compare rankings lists of universities captured by the first Italian evaluation exercise, through peer review, with the results of bibliometric simulations. The comparison shows the great differences between peer review and bibliometric rankings for excellence and productivity. TS - CrossRef
