Новая формула расчета CiteScore

CiteScore is a new metric standard that helps scientists measure the impact of citing journals, book series, and conference proceedings. These metrics are comprehensive, transparent, relevant, and free, greatly helping scientists around the world to analyse where to publish their research results.

In scientometrics, there are two golden rules for research metrics

1. Always use both qualitative and quantitative analysis in your decisions;

2. Always use more than one research metric from the list of metrics for each analysis.

CiteScore indicators comprise eight metrics

  • CiteScore
  • CiteScore Tracker
  • CiteScore Percentage
  • CiteScore Quartiles
  • CiteScore Rating
  • Number of links
  • Number of documents
  • Percentage of citations
