  1. 1. Prof Keivan Navi The Secret of writing a highly cited paper
  2. 2. Citation a citation is an abbreviated alphanumeric expression embedded in the body of an intellectual work that denotes an entry in the bibliographic references section of the work for the purpose of acknowledging the relevance of the works of others to the topic of discussion at the spot where the citation appears. 17/02/1394 2 The A to Z of Getting Published & Maximising Your Research Impact
  3. 3. Citation • a quotation from or reference to a book, paper, or author, especially in a scholarly work. • a reference to a previous case, used as guidance in the trying of comparable cases or in support of an argument. • a mention of a praiseworthy act in an official report, especially that of a member of the armed forces in wartime. 17/02/1394 3 The A to Z of Getting Published & Maximising Your Research Impact
  4. 4. Self Citation • It refers to the practice of a researcher citing his own papers in later publications. For instance, a scientist might write one paper, and then write a second paper citing the first one. • Sometimes there is nothing wrong with self-citation. A lot of scientists often do legitimate follow-up work in the same field, where their own papers are perfectly valid to cite. However, some researchers inappropriately self-cite to try and improve their citation count. 17/02/1394 4 The A to Z of Getting Published & Maximising Your Research Impact
  5. 5. Highly Cited Highly Cited Papers are defined as those that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year indexed in the Web of Science, which is generally but not always year of publication. These data derive from Essential Science Indicators℠ (ESI). ESI is one of ISI/Thomson's Web of Knowledge databases that provides more aggregate citation analysis than do the citation indices. 17/02/1394 5 The A to Z of Getting Published & Maximising Your Research Impact
  6. 6. Hot Papers • Hot Papers are papers that receive citations soon after publication, relative to other papers of the same field and age. • The magazine The Scientist defines it by the number of citations a paper receives in a short amount of time: hot = over 100 citations within about two years after it is published. • In other cases, a hot paper might be a new development in an exciting field even before it can get cited much. Perhaps a technical leap forward in stem cells would be hot these days. • Other times, it might just be a personal opinion as to whether a paper is hot, i.e. if it is a cool development in your field even if your field isn't so competitive. 17/02/1394 6 The A to Z of Getting Published & Maximising Your Research Impact
