2013 (English)In: Translational Twists and Turns: Science as a Socio-economic Endeavor / [ed] Sybille Hinze & André Lottmann, Berlin, 2013, 96-103 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The argument presented in this study is that when the quality of the researchpapers being produced from two organizations is the same, researcher from one organization can still be seen as the higher performer in terms of citations.The differences are in their work productivity. This is defined as the number of produced units per unit of work. This study shows that there are differences in the work productivity among Swedish universities and that the ranking of universities changes when these differences are accounted for. I also demonstrate that researchers belonging to organizations with greater workproductivity are also more likely to produce highly cited papers.
