Our research group carries out a project entitled Contemporary Polish Humanities in the face of the Challenges of Scientometric at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. The project is financed by the National Programme for the Development of Humanities in Poland (decision number 0057/NPHR3/H11/82/2014) and has been scheduled for four years: we started in September 2014 and will finish the work by the end of 2018.
The aim of the project is to investigate how the social sciences and humanities are defined within the science policy and the scientometric indicators in Poland. Moreover, we will develop a model of the Polish humanities promotion. We will investigate whether the humanities can be evaluated through the bibliometrics indicators and how scholars in of the Social Sciences and Humanities in Poland adapt to the bibliometrics assessment.
