Bibliometric assessment of Research Activities Related to Microplastics Marine Pollution

“In addition to the comprehensive mapping of the existing marine research and programs relevant to JPI Oceans by WP3 and the resource demanding analysis of CSA Oceans’ consultation questionnaires by WP3,4,5,6), there is a need for more targeted, flexible, and less resource consuming mapping methods.
Bibliometry provides one such tool, and should be used in conjunction with other mapping methods. Thus, a limited bibliometric study with relevance to the Microplastics Pilot Action was performed. It gives a good illustration of the usefulness of this tool for CSA Oceans and JPI Oceans when exploring new fields and evaluating potential new activities. It is also a tool for monitoring and evaluation of research fields, activities and actors.”
