Productivity ratings of institutions based on publication in Scientometrics, Informetrics, and Bibliometrics, 1981-2000

Uzun, A
The author surveyed a set of ten scholarly journals that publish the mainstream of papers in the field of Scientometrics, Informetrics, and Bibliometrics (SIB). The survey is limited only to the research articles published in the field for the two decades period 1981-2000. Each journal was examined issue by issue for the institutional affiliations of contributing authors. Institutional rankings for the total period and the two decade periods; 1981-1990 and 1991-2000 were determined by awarding credit to the authors' institutions based on authorship. In the composite of ten journals, the University Sheffield (England), the University of North Carolina (USA), the University of Leiden (Netherlands), the City University of London (England), the National Institute of Science, Technology and Development Studies (India), the University of Sussex (England), the University of Illinois (USA), the University of Michigan (USA), the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Library (Hungary), and Indiana University (USA) emerged as the ten most productive institutions for the period 1981-2000.


Assessing internationality of scholarly journals through foreign authorship patterns: the case of major journals in information science, and scientometrics
Uzun, A (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-01-01)
This article reports findings from a study of patterns of foreign authorship of articles, and international composition of journal editorial boards in five leading journals in the field of information science, and scientometrics. The study covers an American journal and four European journals. Bibliographic data about foreign authors and their national affiliation from five selected years of publication were analyzed for all journals. The foreign input of articles were extremely high in Information Processi...
Provincial Growth in Turkey: A Spatial Econometric Analysis
Akcagun, Pelin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-06-01)
This study investigates the conditional income convergence hypotheses among provinces of Turkey over 1991-2009 period using a comprehensive set of spatial econometric models and two alternative definitions of spatial weights matrices. Particular attention is given to the alterations of the political and economic structures in the two sub-periods 1991-2001 and 2002-2009. We first consider non-spatial specification estimated by ordinary least squares and conduct tests to detect the evidence of spatiality in t...
Multilevel analysis of the relationship between school-level variables and student achievement
Oldac, Yusuf Ikbal; Kondakçı, Yaşar (SAGE Publications, 2020-07-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between student achievement and a set of school-level variables, including distributed leadership, academic optimism, teacher collaboration and enabling school structure. The study was designed as correlational research. A Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) analysis was conducted with a data set collected from 23,053 students and 426 teachers from 40 randomly selected public schools in Turkey. The data were collected using previously developed sc...
Investigation of undergraduate students' mental models about the quantization of physical observables
Didiş, Nilüfer; Eryılmaz, Ali; Erkoç, Şakir; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2012)
The purpose of this research is to investigate undergraduate students’ mental models about the quantization of physical observables. The research was guided by ethnography, case study, and content analysis integrated to each other. It focused on second-year physics and physics education students, who were taking the Modern Physics course at the Department of Physics, at Middle East Technical University. Wide range of data was collected by interview, observation, test, diary, and other documents during 2008-...
Prediction of organizational effectiveness in construction companies
Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2005-02-01)
Investigation of literature on organizational effectiveness (OE) reveals that the researchers have been in consensus for the difficulty of defining, modeling, and measuring OE, which is important for attaining high performance. Major focuses of this paper are, therefore, to construct a conceptual framework to model OE, to derive major determinants of OE from this framework, and to measure OE by constructing prediction models based on artificial neural network (ANN) and multiple regression (MR) techniques. B...
