Abstract

Universities in Japan are required to conduct self-analysis of own research activities, confronting the institutionalization of university evaluation, competitive organizational-level funding, and requirement for mission differentiation. In this article, we discuss what kind of self-analysis is required for university through explanation of the evaluation system of national universities in Japan. Then bibliometric analysis is conducted to explore the change of research performance and concentration of research activities after incorporation of national universities. The methods of self-analysis within universities are proposed from a case-study on diversity and priority of research.
