A scientometric support tool to help grant reviewers


Still following a previous post (link above) about a presentation by Vladlen Koltun, Distinguished Scientist at Apple, (formerly Chief scientist at Intel and prior to that was Professor at Stanford University) check the paper recently published in Plos One, which analyzes a scientometric support tool used in Hungary since 2020, to help grant reviewers:

“Comparing the scientific output of different researchers applying for a grant is a tedious work. In Hungary, to help reviewers to rapidly rank the scientific productivity of a researcher, a grant decision support tool was established and is available at http://www.scientometrics.org. In the present study, our goal was to assess the impact of this decision support tool on grant review procedures https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0280480
