  • Citations are used to recognise and acknowledge the intellectual property rights of authors.
    They are a matter of ethics and a defence against plagiarism.
    Citations are used to show respect to previous scholars. They recognise the history of the field by acknowledging previous achievements.
    Citations operate as a kind of mutual reward system. Rather than pay other authors money for their contributions, writers pay them in citations.
    Citations are a tool of persuasion; writers use citations to give their statements greater authority.
    Citations are used to create a research space for the citing author. By describing what has been done, citations point the way to what has not been done and so prepare a space for new research.

    • 6. Citation QualityCitation Quality  Good citation data is a sign of good scholarship  Good citation data - has all relevant papers cited to show that the authors are aware of related literature - citation has to conform to journal style  But citation styles vary a lot for disciplines  Citations in the hard sciences are a lot more formal
    • 7.  Coverage - More than 8000 journals & conference proceedings - Over 20,000 new items added each week to the citation databases - Letters, articles, editorials etc  Web interface to : - Science Citation Index – 5,300 Titles - Social Sciences Citation Index – 1,700 Titles - Arts & Humanities Citation Index – 1,700 Titles - ISI Proceedings (included since January 2000) Web of ScienceWeb of Science

    • 10.  Unique Resource tool for journal evaluation & comparison - Based on the collection and analysis of citation data  JCR can be used top examine citation data - Relating to a particular journal or group of journals - The service shows the relationship between cited and citing journals in a clear, easy-to-use framework  Each Journal-indexed for five full consecutive years - Updated annually in August/September  Separate product and searched separately - Uses athens authentication service - Print option but no emailing Journal Citation ReportsJournal Citation Reports
    • 11.  Total Cites - Total number of times that each journal has been cited in a given year  Impact factor - Measures the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited within a given year  Immediacy Index - Measure of how quickly the average article in a specific journal is cited  Articles - The number of articles published in a journal in a given year  Cited Half-life - The number of publication years from the current year which account for 50% of current citations received JCR : Five Primary DataJCR : Five Primary Data
    • 12.  Finding the most cited journals: journals that received the highest number of citations in a given year  Finding the largest journals: journals that published the greatest number of articles in a given year  High Impact journals: journals with the highest average citations per recent article  ‘Hottest’ journals: journals which received most cites per current article  Identify Review journals Uses of JCRUses of JCR
    • 13. Identify journals in which to publish, confirm status of journals in which they are published, identify journals relevant to their research JCR for AuthorsJCR for Authors
    • 14. The Impact Factor: What is It?The Impact Factor: What is It?  An index of scientific impact or significance  Chief quantitative measure of the quality of a journal, its research papers, the researchers who wrote those papers, and even the institution they work in  one of three measures which index the way a journal receives citations to its published articles over time

    • 16. The Impact Factor: How it is calculated?The Impact Factor: How it is calculated?  Impact Factor is the measure of the relative size of the citation curve in years 2 and 3  Calculated by dividing the number of current citations a journal receives to the articles published in the two previous years by the number of articles published in those same years
