Abstract
To evaluate the capabilities of academic and scientific research and to support the optimal allocation of scientific research resources as well as the strategic decisions pertaining to science and technology policy, a scientific competitiveness evaluation model is established based on the value of scientific research papers. Using bibliometric and innovation network analysis, an evaluation index is constructed, including quantitative, influence , and frontier of scientific research innovation indicators. The quantitative indicator is based on the citation’s number of scientific research papers. By using between centrality, the influence indicator is calculated. Considering the hot spots and influence of scientific research papers, the frontier indicator is calculated by between centrality and burst detective algorithms. A comprehensive evaluation of academic competitiveness was completed in the scientific research field using the Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) algorithm. Empirical research was conducted on the academic competitiveness of countries in the field of graphene. Through the analysis of the scientific competitiveness of major countries, the results showed that the published papers and citations of China ranked in the world. The United Kingdom ranked first in the frontier, and Germany ranked first in influence. From the comprehensive evaluation perspective, the United States achieved good results in quantity, centrality, and hot spots, and ranked first in the world. Germany, Britain, China, and Spain were ranked from second to fifth place, respectively. The results of each index and comprehensive ranking evaluation of graphene were consistent with expert surveys.
