This paper reports on one aspect of a project which investigated the publication and dissemination behaviour of UK researchers and the effect of research assessment on this behaviour. 1 Using a bibliometric method
We outline the tasks of the UK Advisory Board for the Research Councils in the context of the country's science policy, and describe a programme of science policy studies developed by the Board in response to a growing need to take a strategic view in science policy decisions. The outcomes of the studies which have used bibliometric techniques are briefly described, and the paper suggests how such techniques might be of use to policy-makers in future.

Scientometric predictors of research performance need to be validated by showing that they have a high correlation with the
external criterion they are trying to predict. The UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) — together with the growing movement
toward making the full-texts of research articles freely available on the web — offer a unique opportunity to test and validate
a wealth of old and new scientometric predictors, through multiple regression analysis: Publications, journal impact factors,
citations, co-citations, citation chronometrics (age, growth, latency to peak, decay rate), hub/authority scores, h-index,
prior funding, student counts, co-authorship scores, endogamy/exogamy, textual proximity, download/co-downloads and their
chronometrics, etc. can all be tested and validated jointly, discipline by discipline, against their RAE panel rankings in
the forthcoming parallel panel-based and metric RAE in 2008. The weights of each predictor can be calibrated to maximize the
joint correlation with the rankings. Open Access Scientometrics will provide powerful new means of navigating, evaluating,
predicting and analyzing the growing Open Access database, as well as powerful incentives for making it grow faster.

The prevalence rate of out-of-control sexual behavior and its consequences among females in the UK and elsewhere is unknown at this time ( Hall, 2013 ). In order to increase awareness, provide treatment options for
