STIP Note: Handbook of Science and Technology Indicators


For those in science, technology and innovation policy interested in, or curious about, indicators of science and technology, see this new Springer Handbook of Science and Technology Indicators, 2019, edited by Wolfgang Glänzel, Henk F. Moed, Ulrich Schmoch, and Mike Thelwall.

This is a book to dip in and out of – a wide set of topics related to S&T indicators is covered! I have already been reading some of the chapters (too many to read in one go). This handbook will surely prove to be an invaluable reference handbook, with excellent discussions from an international array of contributing experts on concepts, methods, histories, and debates on the application of quantitative indicators to assessing science, technology and innovation.
