BIBLIOMETRICS ON SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES
CLIENT: Terres Univia is an interbranch organisation which represents French oilseed and oil fruit sector and French legume seed sector interests.
CONTEXT: In order to identify research teams and emerging axis to support the sector, Terres Univia asked Orchidali to conduct a bibliometric analysis for six of its crops (soybean, lupin, pea, fababean, rapeseed, sunflower) and on four areas linked to human nutrition (nutrition and health, allergenicity, processing, sensory properties and consumer studies).
ORCHIDALI ACHIEVEMENT: Thanks to the use of a specific bibliometric software, we constructed the global overview of published articles during 16 years by highlighting the countries and teams that published the more on each of the four subjects and for each species. Our gathering of concepts allowed to identify sub-theme elements studied by the research teams. These results were presented as a poster during the RFL2 congress in Toulouse in 2018.
