The paper explores the concept of Narrative Bibliometrics as a novel approach in academic evaluation. It presents a bridge between traditional metrics and the storytelling aspects of a researcher's contributions, offering more nuanced and contextualized evaluations. The paper identifies four types of narratives—Position, Context, Agents, and Audience—that provide practical applications of bibliometric indicators beyond mere "bean counting." It asserts that Narrative Bibliometrics aligns with Evaluative Bibliometrics and advocates for its systematic incorporation into narrative Curriculum Vitae (CV). The article not only adds transparency to academic evaluations but also suggests a methodology for the practical application of this concept.
