Abstract—The objective of this paper is to design and implement a web based information system for monitoring and disseminating the research activities of an institution. Our system purpose is to provide the capabilities of searching and to retrieve and present qualitative and quantitative data about the research activities. We consider as a case study the School of Engineering at the University of Thessaly. Each department may categorize and manage its continuous flow of raw data in order to a) produce information that leads to specific qualitative and quantitative evaluation metrics b) present both the raw data and the added valuable data and information in an intelligent and effective way adapted to the background and the interests of the viewer.

Index Terms—Bibliometric analysis, scientometrics, data visualization.
