Particularly in technical sciences with interdisciplinary aspects, established publication collection systems are not well suited for the documentation of the research output of entire academic organization units, and even less for evaluation purposes. To support allocation of resources dependent on publication output, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technical University Vienna therefore decided to custom-design a publication database, which the entire university later adopted. This Web-based database supports a wide range of publication types and features simple extraction of lists and counts of publications based on a variety of query criteria. The database provides public search facilities and web services that dynamically create publication lists and records, and exports its contents to the university library system; furthermore, it supplies all publication-related evaluation results of our university, which also affect resource allocations. Therefore, the database serves both as research documentation and as evaluation tool.
