Using publication activity for evaluation of scientific research attracted recently widespread attention by media and even general public. Understandably, both positive and negative attitudes and responses could be noticed. The key question is, of course, how completely information resources available cover publication activity of a given university for only on such coverage the true evaluation could be realize. Availability of more information resources, which could be used for this purpose, opens question of their appropriateness and understanding results obtained. There are bibliographic databases with very wide coverage on one side and specialized databases on the other side and there is a question if results from specialized databases are comparable with results from general ones. We tried to clear up at least some from above questions using case study evaluation of university with strong orientation on almost all chemistry disciplines when comparison between general bibliographic databases and specialized databases could be studied.
After graduation from the Prague Institute of Chemical Technology he obtained his PhD in organic technology from the same institution in 1968. Starting carrier as an organic chemist mostly in areas of pesticides and organic sulphur compounds chemistry he has been steadily engaged in the fields of chemical information and particularly in its electronic forms. He wrote a couple of teaching text on this subject and he is lecturing courses on Chemical Informatics on the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague. He has about 70 papers, patents and review papers in local and international journals and gave a couple of plenary lectures on Online Meeting in London (1997, 1999) as well as at the largest chemical congress Achema in Frankfurt am Main on the subject of management of chemical information and searching problems. He is also author of a couple of projects on promotion of widespread access to the most important chemical databases for all chemical or natural science faculties in the Czech Republic.
