Publication and Dissemination Behaviour of Researchers and the Influence of Research Assessment


December 2008 – July 2009

This study, funded by the Research Information Network, was carried out in partnership with the Department of Information Science, Loughborough University, and CERLIM, Manchester Metropolitan University. The aim of the project was to investigate the publication and dissemination behaviour of researchers, and the influence of research assessment on this behaviour. The project involved desk research, consisting of a literature review and bibliometric analysis, prior to a series of focus groups that acted as the primary data‑gathering exercise. The findings were triangulated through a survey.
