Filters in the search box
Articles: Articles from scholarly journals. Using the peer-review facet in the left menu you will limit to articles reviewed by experts in the field.
E-books and printed books: Online books in full text as well as print books. Please note that theses are not found using this filter.
Printed books: Make a request if the book is currently on loan or if you want to collect it at a different branch library.
E-journals: Enter words from the title of the journal to get to the list of e-journals.
Databases: Enter words from the database title or subject area to get to the list of List of databases. Use English terms. Databases often cover large areas and the search terms therefore need to be broad, for example Physics.

Bibliometrics, the use of statistical and mathematical methods to publications, is an important complement to peer review in evaluation of research output. It gives information about publication volumes, the dissemination of research, scientific impact as well as collaboration patterns.
Bibliometric work is performed within two timeframes; (i) analysing research output (post publishing), and (ii) assisting in creation of strategies for future research (prior to publishing). Here we deal with the former.
The bibliometrics team provide annual bibliometric analyses and follow-ups used in strategic dialogues, as performance parameters for distribution of funding in the Chalmers faculty model (Fakultetsmodellen), as KPIs for research to the upper management and Chalmers board, and in Chalmers annual report to the government.
On a national level the Swedish government uses bibliometrics as an indicator in the allocation of parts of faculty funding for research and graduate education to the universities. The Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) calculates a bibliometric index for each university based on the number of articles published by the researchers in a 4-year period and how many times the publications have been cited. The numbers are normalised for differences between research fields.
On demand services from the bibliometrics team
These pages describe on-demand services offered by the Bibliometrics team to Chalmers’ line managers, directors of Areas of Advance (AoAs) and centres, and individual researchers. The aim is to inspire use of our services and resources to promote quality of research output as well as visibility of publications, researchers, and Chalmers as a whole. When receiving many requests, we prioritise them in the following order:
- Chalmers leadership team (CLG)
- Areas of advance
- Individual researchers
