Here now The new Analyze Results tool is different from the existing View Citation Overview , which analyzes selected results based on their citations. The new tool looks at numbers of documents rather than citations of those documents.
Launched May 2011 - Export Refine for Analysis was part 1, Analyze Results is part 2 Here now
On all document results pages, there will be a new Analyze Results link in the query box. This link opens a new analysis tool.
The default tab, charts Document Count by Year . This is helpful for visualizing trends in total output related to your query. This example shows fast growth in publications on our query.
The Source Title tab, charts Document Count by Journal per Year . This can be used to help decide the best journal to submit a manuscript to. This example shows steady growth in publications on our query in Bioresource Technology .
This is only showing growth in publications, it says nothing about quality. Clicking Compare in Journal Analyzer connects this to our existing tool for comparing journal quality.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) shows steady growth for Bioresource technology , though it isn’t the highest impact by SJR.
Source-Normalized Impact Per Paper (SNIP) shows fast growth for Bioresource technology , assigning it the highest impact . Since SNIP is designed to normalize between disciplines , this might be the best measure for our example. Note : You can learn more about these journal metrics and download them for free at http://journalmetrics.com/
Clicking any point on the chart opens a contextual information box. Since Bioresource Technology shows both the highest growth in publications on our topic and in normalized impact, let’s double check if its documents are on topic. Looks like they are, so this will be the best place to publish.
The Author tab graphs number of documents per author . It is easy to add or remove authors to compare. Simply select or deselect a checkbox. This tab could be helpful for analyzing collaborators and competitors.
Like in the Source Title Tab, the Author tab compares quantity rather than quality. However, the contextual information box for each author enables linking to our existing analysis tools for that author .
The Affiliation tab graphs number of documents per Affiliation .
The Country tab graphs number of documents per Country .
The Document Type tab graphs number of documents by Document Type .
The Subject Area tab graphs number of documents by Subject Area .
