In a previous article (Rahman, Guns, Rousseau, and Engels, 2015) we described several approaches to determine the cognitive distance between two units. One of these approaches was based on what we called barycenters in N dimensions. The present note corrects this terminology and introduces the more adequate term ‘similarity-adapted publication vectors’.(More)
When research groups are evaluated by an expert panel, it is an open question how one can determine the match between panel and research groups. In this paper, we outline two quantitative approaches that determine the cognitive distance between evaluators and evaluees, based on the journals they have published in. We use example data from four research(More)
This paper examines the digital information literacy (DIL) of public library professionals in Norway and explores the ways to improve their skills as well as identify barriers to improvement.

There are no available methods to measure overlap in expertise between a panel of experts and evaluated research groups in discipline-specific research evaluation. This paper explores a bibliometric approach to determining the overlap of expertise, using the 2009 and 2011 research evaluations of ten Pharmaceutical Sciences and nine Biology research groups(More)
