In the framework of the workshop Yves Gingras considered ways of using bibliometric data in studies of new and emerging areas of knowledge and Foresight research. The professor talked about methods for detecting research and technology fronts by the means of two approaches: qualitative, based on expert assessments, and quantitative, which presumes measuring changes in a given indicator.
The main sources of data for the evaluation of scientific activities are research papers, citations, keywords, etc. The analysis of technological innovation is based upon statistics of patents and their citations, inter-patent citations and keywords.
The lecturer provided an overview of existing bibliometric databases and analysed limitations inherent to them.
