Overview
(1) Scholarly Communication in Economics
(2) About the Journal
(3) About Open Assessment
(4) About Open Citation Analysis
(5) Lessons Learned
www.economics-ejournal.org
(1) Scholarly Communication in Economics
• Globalized discipline (English as predominant language)
• Main research findings in peer-reviewed journals
• Increasing importance of journal rankings
• Top journals in the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI), which
also provides citation analysis and impact factors
• Preprint culture (Working/Discussion/Research Papers), mainly
freely available in open access
• For most articles in top journals there is also a preprint version
• Up to two years between preprint and article
• Growing use of research data
www.economics-ejournal.org
(2) About the Journal
www.economics-ejournal.org
Organisation
• Editor / Editorial Office: Kiel Institute (IfW)
• Technical services, archiving and dissemination:
German National Library of Economics (ZBW)
• Advisory Board: 19 international renowned economists
(including five Nobel prize winners)
• Associate Editors: 150 economists from all over the world
• Initial funding via German Research Foundation (DFG)
www.economics-ejournal.org
Concept
• Open access
• Covers all subfields of economics
• Two-Stage Publication Process:
=> Contributions are published as Discussion Papers and as
Journal Articles
• Double Peer-Review Process:
=> Traditional Peer-Review by referees is supplemented by
an “Open Assessment” of registered readers
• No author fees
• No issues, just single articles
• Special Issues on selected topics
www.economics-ejournal.org
Statistics
• Online since March 2007
• Almost 350 submissions
• 135 published discussion papers
• 84 published journal articles
• Very international author affiliation (USA, UK, Italy, Germany)
• 131,000 downloads (i.e. about 600 downloads per paper)
www.economics-ejournal.org

Statistics
• 1,992 registered readers
• 577 comments alongside the discussion papers
(on average 4.3 comments/paper)
• 32 comments alongside the articles
(on average 0.39 comments/articles)
• 67 ratings (0.79 ratings/article)
• 87 recommendations (1.2 recommendations/article)
www.economics-ejournal.org
(4) About Open Citation Analysis
www.economics-ejournal.org
Background Information
• Aim: providing information about the impact of the journal
(Which articles are cited? Who is citing?)
• Use of the CitEc tool (provided by RePEc) since January
2009
• Additional Information: Search in Google Scholar
• Plus: application for SSCI (Social Science Citation Index);
currently under review
www.economics-ejournal.org
Citation Analysis with CitEc
• All papers of the E-Journal are stored on ZBW-Repository
EconStor
• EconStor provides automatic RePEc-Input-Service
• RePec has implemented the citation analysis tool CiTEc
• CitEc uses about 220,000 free accessible RePEc sources
(primarily working papers) for citation analysis
• Monthly updates
• CitEc can be used by input providers for analysing purposes
www.economics-ejournal.org
Citation Analysis with CitEc: First Results
Journal Articles
• 21 articles cited (25% of all articles)
• Up to 12 citations per article
• 50 citations in total
• Newest cited article is from April 2009
Discussion Papers
• 27 papers cited (20% of all papers)
• Up to 12 citations per paper
• 55 citations in total
• Newest cited paper is from January 2009
=> 40% of all citations in the last 6 months!
www.economics-ejournal.org
(5) Lessons Learned
www.economics-ejournal.org
Open Assessment
• Positive response to the section “Comments and Questions”
– fast rising number of comments in the turn of this year
– especially steadily growing interest in uploading reader
comments
• Slow rise of ratings
• Steadily rising flow of recommendations
=> In consideration: discontinuing of the rating possibility
www.economics-ejournal.org
Open Citation Analysis
• CitEc-tool of RePEc is extremely helpful 
• Makes citations more transparent (->self-citations)
• So far mainly analysis of preprints: problem with licensed
material (journal articles)
• Google Scholar lists more citations, but:
– wrong links (e.g. citing document is older than cited
document)
– links lead to the same publication
=> no reliable source, but sometimes additive information

Thank you for your attention!

  • 1. 1 Open Assessment and Open Citation Analysis - Experiences with the Journal “Economics” Open Assessment and Open Citation Analyis – Experiences with the Journal “Economics” COASP Conference, September 14th –16th 2009, Lund Olaf Siegert Korinna Werner-Schwarz German National Library of Economics (ZBW) Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 2. Overview (1) Scholarly Communication in Economics (2) About the Journal (3) About Open Assessment (4) About Open Citation Analysis (5) Lessons Learned www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 3. (1) Scholarly Communication in Economics • Globalized discipline (English as predominant language) • Main research findings in peer-reviewed journals • Increasing importance of journal rankings • Top journals in the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI), which also provides citation analysis and impact factors • Preprint culture (Working/Discussion/Research Papers), mainly freely available in open access • For most articles in top journals there is also a preprint version • Up to two years between preprint and article • Growing use of research data www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 4. (2) About the Journal www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 5. Organisation • Editor / Editorial Office: Kiel Institute (IfW) • Technical services, archiving and dissemination: German National Library of Economics (ZBW) • Advisory Board: 19 international renowned economists (including five Nobel prize winners) • Associate Editors: 150 economists from all over the world • Initial funding via German Research Foundation (DFG) www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 6. Concept • Open access • Covers all subfields of economics • Two-Stage Publication Process: => Contributions are published as Discussion Papers and as Journal Articles • Double Peer-Review Process: => Traditional Peer-Review by referees is supplemented by an “Open Assessment” of registered readers • No author fees • No issues, just single articles • Special Issues on selected topics www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 7. Statistics • Online since March 2007 • Almost 350 submissions • 135 published discussion papers • 84 published journal articles • Very international author affiliation (USA, UK, Italy, Germany) • 131,000 downloads (i.e. about 600 downloads per paper) www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 8. (3) About Open Assessment www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 9. The Two-Stage Publication Process www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 13. Statistics • 1,992 registered readers • 577 comments alongside the discussion papers (on average 4.3 comments/paper) • 32 comments alongside the articles (on average 0.39 comments/articles) • 67 ratings (0.79 ratings/article) • 87 recommendations (1.2 recommendations/article) www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 14. (4) About Open Citation Analysis www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 15. Background Information • Aim: providing information about the impact of the journal (Which articles are cited? Who is citing?) • Use of the CitEc tool (provided by RePEc) since January 2009 • Additional Information: Search in Google Scholar • Plus: application for SSCI (Social Science Citation Index); currently under review www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 16. Citation Analysis with CitEc • All papers of the E-Journal are stored on ZBW-Repository EconStor • EconStor provides automatic RePEc-Input-Service • RePec has implemented the citation analysis tool CiTEc • CitEc uses about 220,000 free accessible RePEc sources (primarily working papers) for citation analysis • Monthly updates • CitEc can be used by input providers for analysing purposes www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 17.
  • 18.
  • 19. Citation Analysis with CitEc: First Results Journal Articles • 21 articles cited (25% of all articles) • Up to 12 citations per article • 50 citations in total • Newest cited article is from April 2009 Discussion Papers • 27 papers cited (20% of all papers) • Up to 12 citations per paper • 55 citations in total • Newest cited paper is from January 2009 => 40% of all citations in the last 6 months! www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 21. Open Assessment • Positive response to the section “Comments and Questions” – fast rising number of comments in the turn of this year – especially steadily growing interest in uploading reader comments • Slow rise of ratings • Steadily rising flow of recommendations => In consideration: discontinuing of the rating possibility www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 22. Open Citation Analysis • CitEc-tool of RePEc is extremely helpful  • Makes citations more transparent (->self-citations) • So far mainly analysis of preprints: problem with licensed material (journal articles) • Google Scholar lists more citations, but: – wrong links (e.g. citing document is older than cited document) – links lead to the same publication => no reliable source, but sometimes additive information www.economics-ejournal.org
  • 23. Thank you for your attention! Korinna Werner-Schwarz korinna.werner-schwarz@economics-ejournal.org Olaf Siegert o.siegert@zbw.eu
