The reports are:
- “International Arctic Research: Analyzing Global Funding Trends”, aims to analyze the current state of Arctic research using international funding information and relate this to both activities of the Arctic Council Member and Observer states, as well as international research activity generally.
- “Arctic Research Publications based on Russian Science Citation Index”, looks at national level publications in all subject areas of broader Arctic research published in the Russian language in journals hosted by RSCI and eLibrary.
- “Arctic Altmetrics”, analyzes different aspects of Arctic research via an investigation of publications data and alternative metrics.
- “The Landscape of Climate Research Funding”, looks at the growth and content of climate research investment and notes its deep impact on monitoring, regulatory and policy organizations across the world.
These reports make extensive use of data from the Dimensions database of competitive research grants, which indexes more than $1 trillion peer-reviewed research funding across more than 3.5 million individual grants and awards, linked to principal investigators and their institutions.
Marina Kalinina, University of the Arctic Vice-President for Interregional Cooperation said:
“Editorial and publication of science data analytics reports in the Russian language is timely and addresses current information needs of the research community. These reports might be important tools to construct institutional politics in the field of science and research, as well as in understanding global trends and approaches to build up research collaboration networks for our institutions.”
“Digital Science is committed to the research community by creatively looking at alternative ways of assessing and analyzing science trends through big data, –
said Igor Osipov, CEO Digital Science Russia and VP A&G EMEA.
Funding and patent data provide unique early indicators to the most current research that has not yet resulted in publications or citations, which allows advancing analysis into the 3-7 year knowledge gaps. Communication impact seen via altmetrics is another source of insight into institutional and research visibility in the wider media and social sphere. We are happy to collaborate with the 5top100 Excellence Project as well as NArFU and UArctic to provide these new insights to the research community in Russia and globally.”
Elena Kudryashova, Rector of Arctic Federal University noted:
“There are more than 50 UArctic member institutions located in Russia. During 2016-2017 NARFU also launched National Arctic Science and Education Consortium (NANOK, http://arctic-union.ru), with the aim of uniting all Arctic research-intensive institutions and organizations nationally. Alternative perspective on the impact of Arctic research expands the frames of information sources to evaluate societal impact, especially today, when we see the rise of the digitalization era.”
