Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: str.Other title: Evaluation of scientific work in information sciences through conference and journal as a medium of scientific communication [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 5.04 | information sciences; citation anaylsis | information sciences; citation anaylsis In: 7th Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference (QQML2015) Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference, QQML (7 ; 2015 ; Paris)2015)Summary: The problem of evaluation of scientific work can be investigated from different perspectives. The most common method of evaluation is based on the peer review and comparison of scientist, institution, science fields, country etc. Although being recently critiqued for its inadequacies due to the changes in the scientific communication still the quantitative method or scientometrics approach is considered as the most appropriate method. Paper presents the results of research based on analysis of the QQML conference proceedings and journal as a medium of scientific communication. The goal of the research was to answer the question of the relevance of the conference and its impact to scientific work. Using the scientometrics approach and the data gathered author analyses: the number and type of the work published, authorship (taking into account the collaboration as a foundation to understanding scientific communication inside the community), impact (based on citation or download, presuming that downloaded documents are considered as relevant) as well as the citation analysis. The results add to the research of different paths and specificities of the scientific communication under the QQML umbrella and impact of publishing authors and their research as well as the QQML conference as a communication media.
