Science of Science Policy has become a global agenda for academia and government. It is expected to offer intellectual and evidential basis for decision making about science and industrial policy. In this contribution, capability and competence of research on science of science policy is evaluated with bibliometric indicators. Scientific publications in models and tools for science of science policy, including econometrics, simulation, infometrics, data science, which was published by Japanese researchers, are analyzed. The capability and competence of Japanese think tanks are also evaluated and compared with those by U.S. think tanks. The results identified much room to be developed in a variety of sectors in academic research, public think tank, government, and education. Functions of each sector and collaborative approaches among them are also discussed.
