2 Assoc. prof. J.P. van Dijk Our scientific environment: competition & how to survive Sociální determinanty zdraví u sociálně a zdravotně znevýhodněných a jiných skupin populace (CZ.1.07/2.3.00/ )

3 Our scientific environment: competition & how to survive Assoc. Prof. JP van Dijk MD PhD Department of Social Medicine University Medical Centre Groningen University of Groningen The Netherlands

4 Our scientific environment: competition & how to survive Assoc. Prof. Jitse P. van Dijk MD PhD Scientific Director Graduate School Kosice Institute for Society and Health Medical Faculty P. J. Šafárik University, Košice

5 Outline 1Rankings 2How to become competitive? concentrate on certain research topics publish internationally reorganise the PhD structure educate PhD students research skills systematically selection promising students at an early stage of their studies find international partners 3The role of governmental financing 4Summary

6 Rankings increasingly important universities are compared SCI, SSCI and A&HCI output

7 Criteria Academic Ranking World Universities (Shanghai) * Alumni institutions winning a Nobel prize10% * Staff institutions winning a Nobel prize20% * Frequently cited researchers in 21 broad subject categories20% * Articles published in Nature and Science20% * Articles in the Science Citation Index-expanded and 20% the Social Science Citation Index * Per capita academic performance per institution10%

10 Criticisms very different universities are compared always: absolute scores of SCI, SSCI and A&HCI local discipline vs. world average in a particular discipline ARWU has recently tried to address these: by using 5 fields Scopus: SCImago

11 CZ and SK Universities – Normalized Impact (SCImago 2011) NI%Q1 NL - Univ Groningen CZ - University of South Bohemia CZ - Palacky University Olomouc CZ - Charles University Prague CZ - University of Pardubice CZ - Masaryk University Brno SK - Safarik University Kosice SK - Comenius University Bratislava

12 Effect of comparison increasingly important possibilities for successful applications for grants money from the government

13 University: Quo Vadis? just local significance or fight for a high ranking

14 University of Groningen Working at the frontiers of science

18 concentrate on certain research topics publish internationally reorganise the PhD structure educate PhD students research skills systematically select promising students early during their studies find international partners How to reach such a position?

19 concentrate on certain research topics publish internationally reorganise the PhD structure: replace monographs with articles educate PhD students research skills systematically select promising students early during their studies find international partners How to reach such a position?

20 concentrate on certain research topics publish internationally reorganise the PhD structure educate PhD students research skills systematically: Graduate School select promising students early during their studies find international partners How to reach such a position?

21 concentrate on certain research topics publish internationally reorganise the PhD structure educate PhD students research skills systematically select promising students early during their studies: junior scientific master class (extra program) find international partners How to reach such a position?

26 R&D expenditures (% GDP) in CZ, SK, NL and EU-27 over

27 Scientific output & R&D expenditures

28 just local significance or fight for a high ranking Scientific output (IF): 3 CZ, 2 SK, 1 NL from

29 1)a PhD thesis should consist of articles (SCI, SSCI or A&HCI) 2) systematic education for PhD students / researchers Suggestions for U Olomouc

30 just local significance or fight for a high ranking University: Quo Vadis?

31 data collection how to write an article? basic descriptive statistics how to cope with reviewers comments? Graduate School

32 Means: a structural education for researchers Aim: the Universitys output increases – quantitatively and qualitatively Means & Aim
