Abstract:   (4945 Views)

Introduction: In the universities and academic institutes, most of the research activities are performed in departments and research centers, which are evaluated by measurement of indices such as number of academics and students, number of publications and patents, citation analysis, journals in which their reports have been published, the amount of grants etc.

 Methods: Academic department is considered as the evaluation unit of researcher’s activities. Two important parameters of departments’ “research focus” and number of academics who are active in the “field of focus” have not been considered in any evaluation systems yet.

Results: In this article, two new indices entitled “subject h-index” (hs-index) and “researcher for subject h-index” (hrs-index) are proposed for measurement of these parameters.

Conclusion: Both of suggested indices make the assessing and monitoring of research focus and active scientists feasible.
