Snowball Metrics Landscape

This is a matrix of all research activities that Snowball Metrics aim to cover. It was agreed by the project partners. The landscape lends itself to the challenge of deriving meaningful information in social sciences and arts and humanities, as well as the more familiar approaches in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (“STEM”) disciplines. A set of “denominators” was also defined to:
  • Fractionalize (“slice and dice”) Snowball Metrics so that they can be read out at various levels of detail
  • Normalize Snowball Metrics across institutions to enable comparison between units of different sizes
