AMSTERDAM, June 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Elsevier, a global information analytics company specializing in scienceand health, today releases CiteScore 2016 annual values and a number of improvements to its set of simple, reproducible serial metrics that cover all journals, book series, conference proceedings and trade publications in Scopus.
A number of improvements have been made to CiteScore metrics based on user feedback. Most significantly, complete transparency has been added to the metrics so that users can validate any CiteScore value by clicking into the numerator (citations) and denominator (documents) to view the underlying documents used for the calculation. Scopus subscribers and non-subscribers are able to access CiteScore metrics and their underlying data. Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books, conference proceedings and trade publications.
"Since its release, we've seen other publishers start to adopt CiteScore. Like them, CiteScore allows my team to monitor our journal's performance throughout the year, lessening the need to wait until mid-year to see how a journal performed the prior year. No debate is required about the underlying numbers: the number of citations and the number of articles are transparent numbers. Good things are sometimes simple. Journal metrics are important for our authors when they consider submitting an article. We continue to advocate using journal metrics only for the assessment of journals - not individual researchers," said Philippe Terheggen, Elsevier's Managing Director of Science, Technical and Medical Journals.
CiteScore metrics were launched in December 2016 in response to academia's call for metrics that provide a broader, more transparent view of an academic journal's citation impact. CiteScore metrics are part of a basket of metrics available on Scopus (including journal, author, institutional, and article-level metrics), supporting a holistic view of research performance.
CiteScore metrics have been developed as a tool to help researchers in deciding where to publish, what to read and with whom to collaborate; for librarians and information specialists in managing their collections and enriching researcher services around metrics; for institutional leaders in showcasing the research being published and evaluating research strategy; and for publishers in measuring the performance of their titles and portfolios.
CiteScore metrics are comprehensive, current, transparent and free:
