Presently his focus of interest is directed towards evaluation of societal relevance such as professional impact, i.e., citation performance in clinical guidelines.


Dorte Henriksen is research librarian at the University of Southern Denmark, where she works with bibliometric analysis and consulting. Her research focuses on scholarly communication, research evaluations, and researchers’ collaboration and publishing behavior. She recently handed in her doctoral dissertation with the title “Research collaboration and co-authorship in the social sciences” at Aarhus university.
