Evaluation Review, 1994, vol. 18, issue 1, 65-76

Abstract: This article presents the theory behind modern evaluative bibliometric techniques at three levels. Policy applications, which characterizes the scientific and technological output of nations or regions; strategic analyses, which deals with articles and patents at the level of a university or company; and tactical analyses, which addresses questions concerning a single subject. The article explains the newer techniques that have been developed at each level, as well as the more important limitations.
