To analyze the scientific output of Wageningen researchers, the Wageningen UR Library did several bibliometric analyses in 2009. For these analyses, the research registration system Metis, the repository WaY (with the publication output of the university and institutes of Wageningen UR) and the bibliographic databases with citation information were used. It is essential to the analyses that these databases be linked to obtain a complete overview of the publication-output and citation information of all researchers within a specified Wageningen UR unit for which the analysis is being done.

The experiences with linking the three different databases and the added value of using the repository and the research registration system for the bibliometric analyses were explained in several presentations in both a national and international context in 2009. As a result of these congress contributions, two short publications in the form of conference proceedings and a book chapter will appear in 2010.
