The mission of the Center for Scientific Information Analysis and Monitoring is to elaborate a system to analyze the Armenian scientific potential as well as to integrate theArmenian scienceinto the world science market.
Study and monitoring of science in Armenia
Import and development of Scientometrics as a separate science sub-field in Armenia
Calculate Impact Factors for the Journals published in Armenia
Develop the Armenian Science Citation Index
Provide statistical, methodological and analytical information about science in the Republic of Armenia to the State Committee of Science, RA Ministries, National Academy of Sciences, as well as other concerned organizations and scientific community
Elaborate methodology for statistics in the field of science, assessment, analysis and forecasting of scientific potential
One of the challenges that Armenia has faced since independence was (and continues to be) the disintegration of the scientific community, which manifests itself in brain drain. This process is expressed in two main ways: 1․ withdrawal from science; 2․ emigration from Armenia. As a result of the second process, the Armenian scientific diaspora has significantly increased at the expense of many researchers from Armenia. From the point of view of RA national security and development, it is very important to preserve the Armenian scientific community and then find a model for its development. One way to do that is to develop a flexible, effective and realistic model for cooperation between Armenia and the Armenian scientific diaspora, which will enable, on the one hand, to develop Armenian science and, on the other hand, create mutually beneficial conditions for cooperation and offer them to Armenian researchers abroad. This research project aims to conduct an inventory of Armenian researchers abroad, assess the current state of cooperation between Armenia and the Armenian scientific diaspora, as well as develop a flexible, effective and realistic model for cooperation between Armenia and the Armenian scientific diaspora based on international experience.
Today it is nearly impossible to conduct high-quality research and gain competitive results in science by fencing off from the international scientific community. From this point of view one of the main challenges for the Armenian scientific community is the issue of internationalization. One of the ways to achieve this goal is by joining the Open science movement (OSM) which could not only help to...Read more
