Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Law
  • World War II

Lutz Bornmann mainly focuses on Citation, Bibliometrics, Data science, Citation analysis and Statistics. Citation is a subfield of Library science that Lutz Bornmann tackles. His studies in Bibliometrics integrate themes in fields like Information science, Test, Percentile rank, Citation impact and Set.

His Altmetrics study in the realm of Data science connects with subjects such as Research evaluation. His Citation analysis study incorporates themes from Social research, Social science, Standardization, Epistemology and Operations research. His work on Ranking as part of general Statistics research is often related to Statistical analysis, Rank and Extensive data, thus linking different fields of science.

His most cited work include:

  • What do citation counts measure? A review of studies on citing behavior (850 citations)
  • Growth rates of modern science: A bibliometric analysis based on the number of publications and cited references (551 citations)
  • What do we know about the h index (396 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Citation, Bibliometrics, Data science, Statistics and Citation impact. His work in Citation covers topics such as Web of science which are related to areas like World Wide Web. His Bibliometrics study deals with Altmetrics intersecting with Social media.

Scopus is closely connected to Excellence in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Data science. His Percentile study, which is part of a larger body of work in Statistics, is frequently linked to Convergent validity and Set, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research on Percentile focuses in particular on Percentile rank.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Citation (31.64%)

  • Citation (31.64%)
  • Citation impact (15.40%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Bibliometrics, Citation, Citation impact, Data science and Scientometrics. His Bibliometrics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Heuristics and Subject. His study in the fields of Citation analysis under the domain of Citation overlaps with other disciplines such as Set.

His research in Citation impact intersects with topics in Productivity, Actuarial science, Confounding and Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory. In the subject of general Data science, his work in Altmetrics is often linked to Order, thereby combining diverse domains of study. The concepts of his Scientometrics study are interwoven with issues in Institution, Data envelopment analysis and Accounting.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Do altmetrics assess societal impact in a comparable way to case studies? An empirical test of the convergent validity of altmetrics based on data from the UK research excellence framework (REF) (33 citations)
  • What do citation counts measure? An updated review of studies on citations in scientific documents published between 2006 and 2018 (31 citations)
  • Interdisciplinarity as diversity in citation patterns among journals: Rao-Stirling diversity, relative variety, and the Gini coefficient (26 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Law
  • World War II

Lutz Bornmann mostly deals with Bibliometrics, Citation, Data science, Citation analysis and Citation impact. His Bibliometrics study which covers Novelty that intersects with Window, Field and Standard deviation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epistemology, Sociology of scientific knowledge, Scientometrics and Measure.

In general Data science study, his work on Altmetrics often relates to the realm of Societal impact of nanotechnology, thereby connecting several areas of interest. He combines subjects such as Percentile, Statistics and Critical rationalism with his study of Citation analysis. His Citation impact study also includes fields such as

  • Actuarial science that connect with fields like Multilevel model, Point, Publishing and Social science,
  • Scopus that connect with fields like Subject, Productivity and Identification.
