The Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator (BFI) is part of the performance-based model for the distribution of a special pool of baseline funding for universities and public research institutions in Denmark. BFI rewards the research publications published in the most recognized scientific journals, and gives a bonus for publications done through inter-institutionary collaboration.

Credits given to universities are fractionalized between the participating universities. So far credits are not assigned to the individual authors but only to their institutions.
However, it turns out that research collaboration is associated with a higher number of citations than single authorship which may present the author with two opposing incentives for research collaboration.
