  • Research interest:The Antwerp group of the Centre for R&D Monitoring (ECOOM) maintains the Flemish Academic Bibliographic Database for the Social Sciences and Humanities (VABB-SHW). We carry out research into publication patterns and impact of social sciences and humanities, with special attention to the international dimension. By measuring cognitive distance between publication portfolios, it becomes possible to relate this aspect to the study of interdisciplinarity.
