Elsevier releases 2017 CiteScore values
- 04 Jun 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has released the 2017 CiteScore values, its latest assessment of thousands of serial scholarly publications, and is now freely available for Scopus subscribers as well as non-subscribers.

More than 23,350 source titles covering 330 disciplines are ranked across eight indicators which are all part of CiteScore Metrics. These include: CiteScore, CiteScore Tracker, CiteScore Percentile, CiteScore Quartiles, CiteScore Rank, Citation Count, Document Count, and Percentage Cited. All calculations are transparent and reproducible.

With free access to CiteScore Metrics' underlying data, values can be recalculated by anyone, offering transparency to researchers, publishers and the wider academic community. In addition, and acknowledging the potential of every document type to cite and be cited, all document types in Scopus are counted in the calculation of the CiteScore Metrics.

CiteScore Metrics are part of a collection of research metrics, Elsevier's 'basket of metrics', available on or through Scopus. Other metrics include journal, author, institutional, and article-level metrics captured in PlumX Metrics (covering citations, social media mentions and coverage in mainstream media), supporting a holistic view of research performance.

CiteScore Metrics also allow for monitoring journals' performance throughout the year (via CiteScore Tracker), lessening the need to wait until mid-year to see how a journal performed the prior year.

Clarivate Analytics and the Egyptian Knowledge Bank partner to power the first Arabic Citation Index
- 29 May 2018

Clarivate Analytics has partnered with the Egyptian Knowledge Bank (EKB), the Egyptian government's digital library and online knowledge hub to launch the first Arabic Citation Index (ARCI). This index will launch in 2020 as part of Egypt's 2030 Vision to transform Egypt into a 'knowledge economy' and will be the first ever mapping of Arabic scholarly literature in a citation index. The ARCI will be powered by the Web of Science - the world's most trusted and only publisher - neutral citation index for researchers in Egypt and across the 22 member states of the Arab League.

Funded by the EKB, the new citation index will introduce an Arabic interface for the Web of Science, providing access to bibliographic information and citations to scholarly articles from expertly curated Arabic journals and other Web of Science content. The creation of a comprehensive bibliographic/citation database of Arabic scholarly publishing will make Arabic scholarly content more accessible, connecting it to more than 1.4 billion cited research references (dating back to 1900) and the highest quality, peer-reviewed scholarly content from across the globe.

Pioneered by the late Dr. Eugene Garfield, the concept of citation indexing for research has revolutionised the way people search for information. Citation indexes track bibliographic references added by authors of published papers and provide an enriched way to search and analyse literature by gathering data on journal assessment and areas of research activity. This analysis that's not possible with simple keyword or topical searching.

The primary aim of ARCI will be to evaluate the quality and research output of Arabic researchers, universities and research organisations. By measuring these outputs, the ARCI will enhance the Arabic academic footprint, identify critical Arabic research, and improve funding opportunities for researchers. The ARCI will be the fifth regional citation index developed by the Web of Science. Other citation indexes powered by Web of Science include: Chinese Science Citation Database, SciELO Citation Index, Russian Science Citation Index and KCI-Korean Journal Database.

The ARCI journals will be selected by a newly established editorial board. Members of the board will provide regional insights and subject knowledge. The board will oversee the establishment of journal selection criteria, benchmarks and reporting methodologies, which will be based on the Web of Science Citation selection process. Later in 2018 Clarivate Analytics will provide consultation on this process and participate as a member of the ARCI Editorial Board.

Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications journal accepted in the Clarivate Analytics Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)
- 13 Feb 2018

The editorial and publishing teams of the Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications journal have announced that the journal has been accepted in the Clarivate Analytics Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).

The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) was launched late 2015 as a new database within Clarivate Analytics' Web of Science Core Collection, in order to complement the existing Web of Science databases (the Science Citation Index Expanded, the Social Science Citation Index, and the Arts&Humanities Citation Index).

Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications has been accepted in the ESCI for its high-quality peer reviewed content of regional importance. As well as providing a mark of quality for the journal, inclusion in the ESCI will allow papers published in the journal to be searchable, discoverable and citable via the Web of Science.

The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology now included in Clarivate Analytics' Emerging Sources Citation Index
- 12 Jan 2018

The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology (JNMT) has been selected by Clarivate Analytics for inclusion in its Emerging Sources Citation Index. This coverage begins with 2017.

The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) covers all areas of the scholarly literature of the sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities. To be accepted for coverage in ESCI, a journal must be peer reviewed, follow ethical publishing practices, meet certain technical requirements, and be recommended or requested by a scholarly audience of Web of Science users. Journals in the ESCI are discoverable via the Web of Science with an identical indexing process to any other indexed journal, with full citation counts, author information, etc.

Published by the technologist section of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), the JNMT focuses entirely on the technology crucial to nuclear medicine. In peer-reviewed articles, every quarter the journal offers recent technically centered articles on imaging and instrumentation, radiopharmacy, quality assurance, radiation safety, and more.

SNMMI also publishes The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, which is listed in Clarivate's Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). JNMT's selection for the Emerging Sources Citation Index could possibly lead to future inclusion in SCIE.

Invitation to Tender: Citation Capture for Unique and Distinctive Collections
- 12 Dec 2017

Research Libraries UK, The National Archives and Jisc will be working together to commission a significant piece of research into the use and presentation of unique and distinctive collections in academic publications as recorded through citations.

Unique and distinctive collections (UDCs) is a term used to encompass the very varied collections held by archives, special collections, libraries and museums throughout the UK and further afield. UDCs are held throughout the archive, library and wider heritage sectors, whether in county record offices and publically funded archives, university archives and special collections, businesses, and national libraries and archives. They are also held within museums and a broader range of heritage and cultural organisations.

Citation Capture aims to furnish the archivist, special collections librarian, and information professional with a better understanding of how academics cite UDC repositories, the nature and volume of the published outputs produced based on UDC research, and how (and what) UDC material is referenced within these. The continued development of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) places a premium on original and high-visibility research by academics, whereas there is a need for more robust measurements of user engagement and output from within the archives, library, and information sectors.

This first phase of Citation Capture will establish current academic practice in the citation of UDC repositories and the possibilities of introducing greater standardisation in citation practice. As leaders in their respective fields, Research Libraries UK, The National Archives, and Jisc are well positioned to undertake this work.

The project will seek to test the viability of establishing a national UDC referencing system. Details on submitting to this 'Invitation to Tender' is available online at http://www.rluk.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Citation-Capture-Joint-RLUK-TNA-Jisc-ITT-.pdf. The deadline for proposals is 17:00 on January 15, 2018.
