Abstract

The evaluation of scientific endeavour is ultimately a learning process. Objective data containing bibliographic information can be visualized as bibliometric graphs. However, understanding the contents of this representation requires tools that support an intersubjective interpretation process. This paper presents an additional tool for bibliometric evaluative purposes. This tool is useful for both research managers and scientists. The first advantage of this tool is that it is an easier way of accessing the contents of bibliometric maps. Additionally, the introduction of a qualitative map in the bibliometric analysis allows for more advanced usage, like expressing socio-economic problems in qualitative terms and then applying these expressions to the bibliometric data by the way of the bibliometric map.
