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.

Clarivate Analytics releases 2017 Highly Cited Researchers List
- 15 Nov 2017

Clarivate Analytics, a leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, has released its annual Highly Cited Researchers list. The citation analysis identifies the most frequently cited researchers as determined by the extent to which their papers have supported, influenced, inspired and challenged other researchers around the globe. It identifies authors who have consistently won peer approval from international researchers in the form of high citation counts.

For more than two decades the Web of Science has served as the basis for regular listings of researchers whose work is cited at a level markedly higher than average for their fields. Clarivate Analytics now presents the latest updates to these listings: the extensive roster of 2017's Highly Cited Researchers, based on work published and cited over the last decade.

Key findings show that more than 3,300 Highly Cited Researchers in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences. 130,000 papers aligned to 900 institutions were selected this year; the USA fields the highest number of authors, at 1,661, a 13% increase on the 2016 listing. The UK ranks second with almost 350 entries; China is gaining fast, in third place, with the highest increase of any nation, showing a 34% jump to 237 authors; several authors -147 in fact - are credited for Highly Cited Papers in more than one field of research. Twenty authors appear in three fields; Finland (25%)&Singapore (21%), while their respective overall totals of authors listed are less than 30, also posted notable percentage increases since 2016.

The two-part study also spotlights a ranking of Hot Papers that quickly accumulate a high number of citations soon after publication. The list of emerging research trends features 21 researchers who, since 2014, have each published at least 14 Hot Papers, according to citations tallied as of December 2016.

The methodology that determines the who's who of researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from Clarivate Analytics. It uses Essential Science Indicators, a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data from the Web of Science, the premier web-based environment of scientific and scholarly research literature totalling over 33,000 journals.

2017 Highly Cited Researchers report, featuring the Hottest Papers and the researchers behind them is available at http://bit.ly/2hs7nzp.

Clarivate Analytics to be exclusive provider of Web of Science citation data to Australian Research Council for ERA 2018
- 22 Aug 2017

Clarivate Analytics, the global provider of trusted insights and analytics to enable the research ecosystem to accelerate discovery, will provide citation data to the Australian Research Council (ARC), a Commonwealth entity within the Australian Government that provides advice on research matters, administers the National Competitive Grants Program and administers Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).

Web of Science will be the exclusive source of citation data for the ARC to use when assessing the quality of research at Australian higher education institutions in the 2018 round of ERA. This exercise includes evaluations informed by a range of indicators including citation metrics and peer review, with a focus on those relating most clearly to the quality of research outputs.

Through ERA, the ARC identifies excellence in research by comparing Australia's university research outputs against international benchmarks, creating incentives to improve the quality of research and identifying emerging research areas and opportunities for further development. Using Web of Science data, the ARC exercise will be supported with high quality and accurate data as well as coverage of key relevant journals to identify and promote Australian research excellence.

As the country's national research evaluation framework, ERA identifies and promotes excellence across the full spectrum of research activity in Australia's 42 higher education institutions. The ARC has responsibility for ERA, which provides the government, universities, industry and prospective students with valuable information about academic research performance in Australia, nationally and internationally, for all discipline areas.

ERA promotes high-quality research to benefit Australian society and drive the country's innovation and economic growth. For more information about ERA and ERA 2018, visit: http://www.arc.gov.au/excellence-research-australia.
