Abstract
Bibliometric methods are used in many evaluation procedures. They have been developed in the so-called Science, Technology, Engineering and Medicine (STEM) disciplines but are increasingly applied generally, thus also in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS). However, the bibliometric methods do not reflect research practices in the HASS disciplines and their use is therefore challenged. This chapter gives an overview on the issues of the use of evaluative bibliometrics in the HASS disciplines, outlines the value of bibliometric analysis for the HASS disciplines and discusses the potential of bibliometrics in informed peer review.
