Established publication collection systems are not well suited for evaluation purposes, particularly for technical sciences with interdisciplinary aspects. To support allocation of resources dependent on publication output, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technical University Vienna decided to custom-design a publication database which later was adopted by the entire university. This Web-based database supports a wide range of publication types and features simple extraction of counts and lists of publications based on a variety of query criteria. The database allows that the institutes themselves enter the publication data; various algorithms and workflow procedures maintain data quality. Currently, the database supplies all publication-related evaluation results of our university, which also affect resource allocations. In addition, it provides public search facilities and web services that dynamically create publication lists and records, and exports its contents to the university library system. Therefore, the database also serves as an important research documentation tool.
Index Terms - Publications, Research documentation, Research evaluation, Web-based database.
