The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Social science
  • Statistics
  • Database

His scientific interests lie mostly in Data science, Citation analysis, Bibliometrics, Altmetrics and Public relations. Rodrigo Costas undertakes multidisciplinary investigations into Data science and Research evaluation in his work. His work deals with themes such as Honesty and Research ethics, which intersect with Bibliometrics.

His Altmetrics research includes elements of Social media, Media studies and Citation. His Social media study is related to the wider topic of World Wide Web. His Citation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Value and Multidisciplinary approach.

His most cited work include:

  • Do “altmetrics” correlate with citations? Extensive comparison of altmetric indicators with citations from a multidisciplinary perspective (395 citations)
  • The h-index: Advantages, limitations and its relation with other bibliometric indicators at the micro level (325 citations)
  • How well developed are altmetrics? A cross-disciplinary analysis of the presence of `alternative metrics' in scientific publications (276 citations)

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

His main research concerns Data science, Altmetrics, Citation, Social media and World Wide Web. His Data science study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bibliometrics and Open data. The study incorporates disciplines such as Science policy and Scientometrics in addition to Bibliometrics.

His Citation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Audience measurement, Information retrieval, Field and Subject. His study in Social media is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Public relations and Media studies. Rodrigo Costas interconnects Matching and Data collection in the investigation of issues within World Wide Web.
