Exploring Bibliometric Mapping in NUS using BibExcel and VOSviewer

Citation analysis is a widely-used bibliometric method for evaluating research output. The Bibliometrics Team, a part of the Scholarly Communication Department in National University of Singapore (NUS) Libraries, has been supporting the NUS community with citation analysis since 2010, be it for Promotion and Tenure (P&T) or departmental benchmarking purposes. With the advancement of technology, bibliometrics can now be applied to other areas, for example, the mapping of the collaborations between institutions. A pilot project was initiated by the NUS Libraries Bibliometrics Team in collaboration with the NUS School of Business to map institutions which have collaborated with and which have cited the school’s publications for the past 5 years (2012 to 2017) using Web of Science data. The aims of this project were twofold; to explore the new applications of bibliometrics and to deepen our existing partnerships with the research community. In this paper, we will share about this project, starting from the community engagement, methodology, prototype created, as well as the limitations and future plans.
