For each paper, InCites calculates two numbers: the actual citations received and the expected citations. The expected citations are defined as the mean number of citations received by all Web of Science papers published in the same subject field, the same year and are the same document type, e.g. Review or Article. Then for each author, we calculate the total number of actual citations received and divide it by the total number of expected citations. This is what we term the Category Actual versus Expected Cites, or CXC for short.Now we really can make a valid comparison between the biologists and the economists.

Agenda Web of Science – Life Demonstration EndNote Web – Life Demonstration ResearcherID Questions 2
Web of Science® : STANDARD for Research Evaluation “Multidisciplinary” coverage enable to analyze the whole context of scientific research “Multiyear” coverage enable to analyze the history and development of sciences “Cover to Cover” policy enable to follow the flow of a topic regardless of communication type “ALL Authors, ALL Addresses” enable to analyze by author name, by institution “ALL Cited References” enable to perform analyses on literature that is not indexed The CONSISTENCY enables large-scale counting and reliable analyses

WEB OF SCIENCE JOURNAL SELECTION POLICY Why do we select journals?
THOMSON REUTERSJOURNAL CITATION REPORTS 40% of the journals:
COMPARE LIKE WITH LIKEWHAT IS THE VALUE OF A CITATION? Why do people cite? Pay homage / give credit to pioneer Identifying a methodology Provide background reading Quotations Authenticating data, reproducing work etc Corrections Criticizing/Disclaiming someone's work/opinions Citations are an indicator of an article’s impact and usefulness to the research community; they are the mode by which peers acknowledge each other’s research. The value of a citation is only as important as its source. Clearly a citation from a prestigious peer review journal has more value than a citation from non-scholarly material. How can you be sure that the citing source is reputable? “When to Cite”, E. Garfield, Library Quarterly, v66, p449-458, 1996
