Evaluation of 50 Greek Science and Engineering University Departments using Google Scholar

by   Marina Pitsolanti, et al.

In this paper, the scientometric evaluation of faculty members of 50 Greek Science and Engineering University Departments is presented. 1978 academics were examined in total. The number of papers, citations, h-index and i10-index have been collected for each academic, department, school and university using Google Scholar and the citations analysis program Publish or Perish. Analysis of the collected data showed that departments of the same academic discipline are characterized by significant differences on the scientific outcome. In addition, in the majority of the evaluated departments a significant difference in h-index between academics who report scientific activity on the departments website and those who do not, was observed. Moreover, academics who earned their PhD title in the USA demonstrate higher indices in comparison to scholars who obtained their PhD title in Europe or in Greece. Finally, the correlation between the academic rank and the scholars h-index (or the number of their citations) is quite low in some departments, which, under specific circumstances, could be an indication of the lack of meritocracy.
