Evaluating universities using simple
scientometric research-output metrics: total
citation counts per university for a retrospective
seven-year rolling sample
Bruce G Charlton and Peter Andras
We advocate a scientometric, top-down and institution-based research-assessment methodology that is
based on total citations accumulated from all publications associated with a specific university during
the survey period. The exercise could be done every year using a rolling seven-year retrospective
sample and should be performed by at least two independent auditors. Identification of elite
`revolutionary-science' institutions could be accomplished using a metric derived from the distribution
of science Nobel Prizes.
HE PURPOSE OF THE UK Research As-
sessment Exercise (RAE) is to measure the
quality of research in UK universities, with
the aim of providing central government funding to
support the long-term research capability of an insti-
tution (Higher Education Funding Councils, 2007).
