    • Research Workshop Melissa Badenhorst WorldWide Information Services Agent: Thomson Reuters
    • Trends in scholarly research • Challenges faced by research community are multiple and complex • Competition for government research funding increasing • Accountability: – Research spending – Demonstrating return on investment (ROI) • PR Personnel responsible: – Advertisements – Publish journals – Recruitment events and community outreach programmes • Require variety of statistics to support their message Result: Institutions seek objective data on research performance, for data-based decision making
    • The Research Assessment “Need”: Objective Information for both Institution and Individual to Reveal Influence/Success and Support Decision-making  Communicating the “success” of research can be complicated, multi-faceted, with subjective factors included.  Therefore reliable, objective information is extremely valuable in research evaluation exercises. Citation Metrics Funding data Peer review . Awards and Honors  We know that a “Citation” to published work is an acknowledgement of an intellectual debt to that work, evidence of it’s influence.  “Bibliometrics” or “citation metrics” have become a critical piece of research assessment exercises.
    • Thomson Reuters Web of Science(formerly ISI) has been the authority on citation data for over 100 years. Science Citation Index 1960 1965 Social Sciences Citation Index 1970 WOK 4.0 Arts & Humanities Citation Index 1975 1980 InCites ISI Web of Knowledge 1985 1990 1995 2000 2005 2007 2008 2009 2011 SciSearch PC-based citation sets Custom citation projects and national indicators mainframe PC-based Indicators for journals, nations, institutions Essential Science Indicators Century of Science TS Innovation WOK 5.0 4
    • WHERE TO PUBLISH
    • WHERE TO PUBLISH? THOMSON REUTERS JOURNAL CITATION REPORTS • DHET (Dept of Higher Education & Training) uses 3 lists for accreditation purposes: Web of Science (ISI), IBSS & South African Journal list • Ranking agencies uses Web of Science data to calculate the ranking of institutions such as: Times Higher Education, Leiden University Ranking, Shanghai ranking agency, etc • JCR uses Web of Science data to calculate the impact factor
    • Accessing the JCR from Web of Knowledge
    • JCR Home Page Science and Social Science editions must be searched separately Before starting, click on Information for New Users and read “Using the JCR Wisely.” The “Notices” link will include useful information about titles changes and title suppressions in this years’ edition.
    • View a group of journals – Subject Category Select one or more categories of journals to view.
    • Journal Summary List Use the drop down to select how you would like the journals arranged, then click “Sort Again”
    • Full Journal Record
    • Calculating the Journal Impact Factor The journal’s Impact Factor is calculated by dividing the number of citations made in 2011 to items published in the previous two years (2009 & 2010) by the total number of articles & reviews published in the previous two years 2011 cites to items published in 2009 and 2010 # of articles/reviews published in 2009 and 2010

    • Evaluating Citation Impact of Individual Paper • Many factors play a role: year of publication, document type, subject area and journal • Normalised indicators are needed to level playing field and compare researchers with one another. • Types of Metrics: Journal actual/expected citation rate Category actual/ expected citation rate Relative Impact/ Bench-marking Percentile in category and mean percentile % papers in top 10% of their field % papers in top 1% of their field Aggregate Performance Indicator Productivity # papers Total influence # citations Efficiency Avg. citation rate Percent of papers cited
    • ARTICLE LEVEL INDICATORS Articles published in this journal from 2005 have been cited 21.48 times This paper has received 45/21.48 = 2.09 times the expected citations for this journal This paper has received 45/16.74 = 2.69 times the expected citations for this subject category Integrative & Complementary Medicine articles from 2005 have been cited 16.74 times Source: Thomson Reuters InCites 36
    • RESEARCHERID
    • What is ResearcherID • www.researcherid.com • Online registry for creating a unique researcher ID number • Build a publication list identifying your work • Make your profile public or private – Public profiles can be searched and viewed by others • Generate citation metrics including: • • • • H-index Citation distribution per year Total Times Cited count Average Times Cited Global research community where researchers connect
