Looking for a better shape: societal demand and scientific research supply on obesity

AbstractAs science policy shifts towards an increasing emphasis in societal problems or grand challenges, new scientometric tools are required to inform decision-makers. However, while traditional bibliometrics could focus on the knowledge production side (the science supply), grand challenges also demand to investigate the articulation of societal needs. in this papaer, we present an exploratory investigation of the grand challenge of obesity -an emerging health problem with enormous social costs. We illustrate a potential apprroach, showing: (a) how scientific publication can be used to describe existing science supply by using topic modelling based on publication abstracts; (b) how question records in the French parliaments can be used as an instance of social demand; and (c) how the comparison between the two may show (mis)alignments between societal concerns and scientific outputs.
