Database & collection‘It is the collection from the database that determines your citationmetrics’• the database is to register your publication• the database is to register the publication that cites yours• the citation report should contain the relevant publications• the citation report should contain the relevant filters (years)
Notes• “Combining citations from a largely unregulated space witha tightly regulated space is not just problematic, it corruptsthe citation as an evaluative metric.”http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2012/12/12/gaming-google-scholar-citations-made-simple-and-easy/• “This is not about competition, this is about providing anopen platform for academic research,“http://www.nature.com/news/2011/110803/full/476018a.html• “However, the h-index will vary considerablydepending on a persons number of creditedpublications and the length of time theyve been active”http://www.lib.utexas.edu/chem/info/cited.html
Choose between RID - GSC• At NIOO we go for purely scientific = RIDfor official reports, Web of Science isleading• At NIOO we care for our public image,therefore we encourage GSC as outreachtool
Citation reports for others“ResearcherID and Google Scholar Citations can only befound if the author has activated them and made thempublic”• ResearcherID’s database is Web of Science, only to besearched with subscription• Google Scholar Citations’ database is Google Scholarand gives no metrics for other authors except via Publish or Perish software tool
Other citation reportsPayed services:• Scifinder Scholar (CAS-chemical),• Scopus (Elsevier - general)Free services:• Microsoft Academic Search http://academic.research.microsoft.com• Altmetrics (non scientific), tools like total-impact,sciencecard, readmeter http://altmetrics.org/tools/
Conclusion (1)‘Bottom-line: Web of Science has the cleanest database, but is missing big chunks of scientific literature. Google Scholar is the most complete, but has not merged slightly erroneous citations, and is cluttered with bogus information.’ http://gasstationwithoutpumps.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/google-scholar-vs-web-of-science/
Conclusion (2)‘Overall, I trust Web of Science more, which is why I have been using it to compile citations to the 2003 NAR paper. However, I use Google Scholar more frequently for quick reference simply because it is free and easy to access.’ http://xiang-jun.blogspot.nl/2011/07/tracking-3dna-citations-google-scholar.html
