La place de la citation dans l'écriture scientifique et son statut d'indicateur de reconnaissance professionnelle

Abstract : This lecture will be divided into two parts. The first part will address the formative issues of the use of quotations and indexation in reports and files for the evaluation of students (both bachelor's and master's or doctoral students). We will try to show how training in writing and the use of quotations enables students to be guided towards greater rigour and mastery of content, while encouraging certain vocations for the research professions. This focus on quotation also transforms the way in which teaching and evaluation are carried out. In the second part, we will focus more specifically on the analysis of the practice of citation in research publications, among researchers and in scientific institutions. It will be based on critical work on bibliometric indices (impact factor, h-index). The aim of this text is to describe the importance of the dual definition of the concept of citation: "to cite sources in a professional manner", in order to correctly master the writing of the state of the art of a research topic, on the one hand, and "to be cited and benefit from it in one's career", on the other hand. A characterisation of the profession of researcher in the human sciences will be proposed in addition.
