Online systems are presented as new tools in the hands of scientific policy makers. When new research proposals require comparative assessment, these systems provide an objective criterion for evaluating both the previous work of a given group and the timeliness and originality of a proposed project. Three examples are presented: (i) evaluation of a determinate project taking into account geographic, disciplinary and historical areas and the results and applications up to the present, (ii) evaluation of a Spanish research team in Physics and (iii) evaluation of a Spanish periodical connected with food research.
