T. O. Kolesnykova, O. V. Matveyeva

Abstract


Purpose. Key performance indicators of the research are bibliometric ones which are a powerful informative tool to support the development of science. Therefore, nowadays in the world they are related to the obligatory elements in reporting of scientific institutions, universities, research groups and individual scientists. Based on the above stated, the purpose of the article is: 1) disclosure of concepts in bibliometrics; 2) definition the role of university libraries in the processes of University research measuring; 3) description the program Bibexel methodology for the analysis of the scientific articles metadata. Methodology. The theoretical base of the research is publications covering contemporary developments in bibliometrics and scientometrics. Practical foundation – the metadata of articles posted in: 1) Scopus database, authors are the scientists of the Dnipropetrovsk National University of Railway Transport named after Academician V. Lazaryan, 2) ScienceDirect database, dedicated to the development of railway transport. Findings. In the course of the study authors have disclosed principal bibliometric concepts. A Bibexel program method for analyzing metadata, namely analysis of the links between co-authors and keyword was described. With its help it was determined that the most «top» topics for researchers all over the world, in the field of railway transport in 2015 year are: planning a high-speed movement, the critical speed definition, computer calculation of railway bridges. It was proved that today the work of University libraries in the world with bibliometric indicators as an indicators of the science development, becomes one of the leading direction of their activity. Originality. The authors substantiated and realized the bibliometric researchability, using Bibexel program in the conditions of limited access at the university libraries in Ukraine to international full-text databases and Science Citation one. Vision about the University library as a structure that moves up from the management by scientific collections to the management by scientific processes was broadened. Practical value. The results of this study can be used: 1) in making the optimal decision upon managing the information resources in order to improve the processes of information application and services, including scientific impact assessment of scientists publications and scientific journals of the Universities; 2) in the organization of training seminars, training courses, workshops, informetrics lectures.
