    Research collaboration between Stockholm University and other Swedish academic institutions: a bibliometric study to support decisions on library collaborationIn: Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries, QQML, ISSN 2241-1925, E-ISSN 2241-1925Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Academic libraries collaborate in several ways. For instance, collaboration can concern standards for indexing and statistics, technical solutions or collection development. A question that a given academic library might ask is with which other academic libraries the library should principally collaborate. In this study, we show how bibliometric methods can be used to generate information that can support decision making with regard to the question at stake. We evaluate the amount of research collaboration between Stockholm University and other Swedish academic institutions across five publishing years, and for the whole considered time period, where research collaboration is operationalized as co-publishing. A dataset of publications obtained from Web of Science, where each publication has at least one Stockholm University address, is used in the study. Co-publishing rates, non-fractionalized and fractionalized, across the publishing years and for the whole for period, for Stockholm University and other Swedish academic institutions, are reported. Further, parts of the outcome of the study are visualized in terms of co-publishing networks.

    Abstract [en]

    KB (Kungliga biblioteket, The Royal Library), The National Library of Sweden, was founded in the 1500s. Since 1661, when the first Legal Deposit Law was introduced, it has functioned as the kingdom's national memory. Today KB receives everything printed that is distributed to the public in the form of books, journals, posters, maps, advertisements, catalogues and so on. Since 1994, following the latest version of the Legal Deposit Law, KB has also stored electronic publications ‘in fixed form’, i.e. published on CD-ROM, tape or diskette. The total growth at KB is about 1.5 shelf-kilometres per year. At that rate, KB's underground storage will be completely full by the year 2050.

    Towards Organizational Transformation in Developing Countries: Enterprise Content Management in Rwanda2016In: Electronic Government and Electronic Participation, Amsterdam: IOS Press, 2016, p. 305-312Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    E-government development is more advanced in developed countries compared to developing countries. Organizational transformation by e-government in developing countries is still at infancy stage. Incremental or radical changes seem to be a subsequent stage in settings where technological implementations are still fresh like in developing countries. In a journey towards organizational transformation, this research work, using design science research, aims 1) to find critical factors influencing implementation of enterprise content management (ECM) in Rwanda as one of the developing countries, 2) to carry out an investigation on how these factors are related to literature in order to detect e-government development stage and 3) to eventually propose a next step towards organizational transformation. Preliminarily results show that implementation of ECM in Rwanda has been focusing on deploying a technical tool in government organizations and this implies that work processes re-design and change management are imperative. The overall contribution of this entire study in progress is two-fold: 1) to suggest a practical way in solving some issues related to efficiency in administrative activities for practitioners towards organizational transformation in a developing country and 2) to create new knowledge for e-government researchers on organization matters especially in developing countries.

    E-Government Implementation in Developing Countries: Enterprise Content Management in Rwanda2016In: Electronic Government and Electronic Participation, Amsterdam: IOS Press, 2016, p. 251-259Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    E-Government is now on the rise in developing countries. While developing countries can "leapfrog" technology generations, the necessary organizational change is another matter. In industrialized countries technical systems have been developed over long time in parallel with institutional development; developing countries hope to make that journey faster. Most of the e-Government implementation research focuses on developed countries. It is important to explore the relation between the literature and the findings in the context of developing countries as to come up with a gap to reduce. An interview study with 56 people in 10 government organizations involved in implementing a government-wide enterprise content management system was conducted to find out how critical success factors found in literature on implementation of information management systems relate to the situation in the Rwanda public sector to discover the step forward in Rwanda. We find a large gap between expectations and results due to a strong focus on the technical tool and little concerns about issues related to organizational change.

    An empirical examination of users’ adoption of mobile advertising in China2016In: Information Development, ISSN 0266-6669, E-ISSN 1741-6469, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 203-215Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the development of mobile technology, mobile advertising has become popular worldwide. It seems that almost every user who owns a mobile device receives mobile advertisements from various service providers. However, most consumers hold negative attitudes towards mobile advertising. This research aims to investigate the factors which influence consumers’ adoption of mobile advertising. Based on a literature review from previous research, a research model is proposed. This research model is empirically evaluated using survey data collected from 302 receivers of mobile advertising in China. Consumers’ attitudes toward mobile advertising and incentives explain about 80 percent of consumers’ intention to receive mobile advertisements. In addition, entertainment, credibility, personalization and irritation all have direct effects on consumers’ attitudes toward mobile advertising; the effect of entertainment is quite strong. Both theoretical and practical implications of this research are discussed.

    Evaluation for Improving eGovernment in Least Developed Countries2016In: Electronic Government and Electronic Participation, Amsterdam: IOS Press, 2016, p. 344-351Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    E-government evaluation is challenging. However, it is important to design evaluations that support development towards the grand though often distant goal of better government. Although developing countries now have the same technology with developed ones, they still need to "leapfrog" in terms of administrative maturity. This is difficult as it requires changes not only in processes but also policies and organizational culture. The objective of this research is to contribute to finding ways of using evaluation effectively to support e-government development as a whole, including not just technology but also organizational maturity for least developed countries. Design science research methodology is used to investigate the problems involved, propose and develop an artifact to solve at least parts of the problems, and to test and evaluate the artifacts effectiveness. This research will also help to increase awareness among the e-government practitioners in Rwanda on how to achieve the ambitious e-government's goals.

    Evaluating eGovernment Evaluation: Trend and Issues2016In: Electronic Government and Electronic Participation, Amsterdam: IOS Press, 2016, p. 123-134Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Evaluating e-government has proven difficult. Reasons include the complex nature of e-government, difficulties in measuring outcomes and impact, and the evolving nature of the phenomenon itself. Practical and effective evaluation methods would be useful to guide the development. To gauge the state of the art in the field, a review of contemporary literature investigated the status of research on e-government evaluation. We found the issues involved to be described by five critical factors: maturity levels, evaluation object, type of indicators, evaluation timing, and stakeholder involvement. The review suggests that there is no best model but rather that e-government evaluation must be situated and take a formative approach to guide the next step. However in doing so there is a need for a clear perspective on where e-government development is going. On this point research is more in agreement, and we provide a model to conceptualize this development.

    Open and Big Data Partnerships for Public Good: Interactive Live Polling of Influential Factors2016In: Electronic Government and Electronic Participation, Amsterdam: IOS Press, 2016, p. 405-406Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is much potential for open and big data to be used for addressing societal challenges of today. This drives a new kind of partnership called "data collaborative" emphasizing the value of data for public good. Data collaboratives stand for cross-sector partnerships, whereby organizations in the private or public sector disclose their data, as an act of good will, in order to contribute to a societal cause (such as e.g. healthcare, humanitarian, or other policy issues). In this workshop we focus on this emerging topic which so far has deserved little attention in research. In our previous research an initial framework of influential factors for data collaboratives was introduced. The workshop objective is to validate and refine this initial framework by inviting participants to take part in an interactive live polling exercise and assess a number of propositions about influential factors.

    Early career grants, performance, and careers: A study on predictive validity of grant decisions2015In: Journal of Informetrics, ISSN 1751-1577, E-ISSN 1875-5879, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 826-838Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main rationale behind career grants is helping top talent to develop into the next generation leading scientists. Does career grant competition result in the selection of the best young talents? In this paper we investigate whether the selected applicants are indeed performing at the expected excellent level something that is hardly investigated in the research literature.

    We investigate the predictive validity of grant decision-making, using a sample of 260 early career grant applications in three social science fields. We measure output and impact of the applicants about ten years after the application to find out whether the selected researchers perform ex post better than the non-successful ones. Overall, we find that predictive validity is low to moderate when comparing grantees with all non-successful applicants. Comparing grantees with the best performing non-successful applicants, predictive validity is absent. This implies that the common belief that peers in selection panels are good in recognizing outstanding talents is incorrect. We also investigate the effects of the grants on careers and show that recipients of the grants do have a better career than the non-granted applicants. This makes the observed lack of predictive validity even more problematic.

    Gender differences in research performance and its impact on careers: a longitudinal case study2016In: Scientometrics, ISSN 0138-9130, E-ISSN 1588-2861, Vol. 106, no 1, p. 143-162Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We take up the issue of performance differences between male and female researchers, and investigate the change of performance differences during the early career. In a previous paper it was shown that among starting researchers gendered performance differences seem small to non-existent (Van Arensbergen et al. 2012). If the differences do not occur in the early career anymore, they may emerge in a later period, or may remain absent. In this paper we use the same sample of male and female researchers, but now compare performance levels about 10 years later. We use various performance indicators: full/fractional counted productivity, citation impact, and relative citation impact in terms of the share of papers in the top 10 % highly cited papers. After the 10 years period, productivity of male researchers has grown faster than of female researcher, but the field normalized (relative) citation impact indicators of male and female researchers remain about equal. Furthermore, performance data do explain to a certain extent why male careers in our sample develop much faster than female researchers' careers; but controlling for performance differences, we find that gender is an important determinant too. Consequently, the process of hiring academic staff still remains biased.

    Defining the role of cognitive distance in the peer review process with an explorative study of a grant scheme in infection biology2015In: Research Evaluation, ISSN 0958-2029, E-ISSN 1471-5449, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 271-281Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is twofold: (1) to provide a methodology for measurement of cognitive distance between researchers and (2) to explore the role of cognitive distance on the results of peer review processes. Cited references and the content of articles are used to represent their respective scientific knowledge bases. Based on the two different approaches-Author-Bibliographic Coupling analysis and Author-Topic analysis-we apply the methodology on a recent competition for grants from the Swedish Strategic Foundation. Results indicate that cognitive distances between applicants and reviewers might influence peer review results, but that the impact is to some extent at the unexpected end. The main contribution of this article is the elaboration on the relevance of the concept of cognitive distance to the issue of research evaluation in general, and especially in relation to peer review as a model used in grant decisions.

    Understanding the rise of e-participation in non-democracies: domestic and international factors2012In: Government Information Quarterly, ISSN 0740-624X, E-ISSN 1872-9517, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 142-150Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While it has often been suggested that information and communication technologies (ICTs) provide an important means of increasing citizen participation (which is at the core of democratic government), few commentators have expected non-democracies to create online environments in which citizens can take an active part in political processes. In recent years, however, some non-democracies have begun to outperform countries with long-standing democratic traditions in terms of e-participation development. According to the 2010 United Nations (UN) e-government survey, Bahrain outranks France, Kazakhstan beats Sweden and Malaysia ranks higher than Germany. This article sets out to understand the recent rise of e-participation initiatives in non-democracies. Drawing on comparative longitudinal data from the UN e-government surveys, we tested the assertion that international drivers of change are competing with the dominant focus on domestic factors, especially in the non-democratic world, and are influencing the patterns of reform. The empirical analysis demonstrated important differences between the drivers of change in democratic and non-democratic countries and found economic globalization to be the strongest predictor of e-participation initiatives in non-democratic countries. In conclusion, we argue that economic globalization alters the context of e-participation and necessitates a re-examination of many of its premises and tenets.
