Scientometrics is for science policy studies what econometrics is for economics. This sub-specialty is concerned with measurement and evaluation of scientific and technological productivity in terms of S&T input, output and impact indicators and statistics within certain conceptual frameworks and tools drawn from social and natural sciences. Insights from scientometric based research studies are now widely used to understand the status and `health' of science and technology; relating S&T to social, economic and human development indices; evaluating and assessing the contribution of R&D laboratories; and foresight studies which utilize indicators developed through scientometrics. It is also envisaged to extend and relate the scientometrics data and techniques with other tools and methods such as GIS, econometrics etc.
