Analyse research

Much of the research communicated to the academic community and the public, such as journal articles, conference contributions, datasets, books, and computer code, leaves traces in the form of metadata. The analysis of these metadata is commonly referred to as scientometrics or, specifically concerning publications, bibliometrics.

Research information

Research information refers to information about KTH's research and the context in which it is carried out. This can include information about researchers and their organizational affiliation, subject matter, and assignments. Additionally, it may encompass intellectual outputs, such as publications and presentations, as well as information about projects, project members, funding, and collaborative partners.

At KTH, research information includes organizational structure such as department, research group, platform, and center formation. However, research data, underlying work materials and knowledge do not fall under the purview of research information. You can learn more about managing research data on our research data pages .
