Bibliometric analyses at 19 departments at AU to be carried out by CFA
Nineteen departments at Aarhus University have entered into an agreement with the Danish Centre for Studies in Research and Research Policy (CFA) on carrying out a number of bibliometric analyses over the next three years. The analyses can, for example, focus on citation patterns, internationalisation, interdisciplinarity and the effects of cooperation between research groups within and across departments and subject areas to the extent that they are covered by the databases.

The STAGES Guidelines are one of the results of four years of efforts and experiences of the European FP7 funded project STAGES - Structural Transformation to Achieve Gender Equality in Science. The overall purpose of STAGES was to launch strategies for structural change in research organisations addressing the many and interconnected layers of the persistent problem of gender inequality in science. The Guidelines comprise contextual information about the action plans implemented in five European research organisations and offer a set of experience-based recommendations in six broad fields of action, exemplified by a selection of relevant practices. The Danish Centre for Studies in Research and Research Policy, Department of Political Science at Aarhus University has been the Danish partner in the project. Learn more about the STAGES project and download the Guidelines. (15.12.15)
