There is a 20 to 25% overrepresentation of English-language journals in Thomson Scientific's databases compared to the list of journals presented in Ulrich, which means Thomson Scientific databases cannot be used in isolation to benchmark the output of countries in the SSH.

Using macrolevel bibliometric indicators to compare results obtained from the WoS and Scopus provides evidence that indicators of scientific production and citations at the country level are stable and largely independent of the database.

While several authors have argued that conference proceedings are an important source of scientific knowledge, the extent of their importance has not been measured in a systematic manner. This…
History of the journal impact factor: Contingencies and consequences
The paper shows how the various building blocks of the dominant JIF came into being and argues that these building blocks were all constructed fairly arbitrarily or for different purposes than those that govern the contemporary use of the JIF.
Long-term variations in the aging of scientific literature: From exponential growth to steady-state science (1900-2004)
The major finding of this article is that contrary to a widely held belief, the age of cited material has risen continuously since the mid1960s, and it is suggested that this phenomenon is a direct response to the steady-state dynamics of modern science that followed its exponential growth.
Canadian collaboration networks: A comparative analysis of the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities
Comparing collaboration patterns in the SSH to those in the NSE shows that, contrary to a widely held belief, researchers in the social sciences and the humanities do not form a homogeneous category.

The results show that journal literature is increasingly important in the natural and social sciences, but that its role in the humanities is stagnant and has even tended to diminish slightly in the 1990s.
The decline in the concentration of citations, 1900-2007
Changes in the concentration of citations received by papers published between 1900 and 2005 are analyzed and show that, contrary to what was reported by Evans, the dispersion of citations is actually increasing.
Bibliometrics as a Performance Measurement Tool for Research Evaluation: The Case of Research Funded by the National Cancer Institute of Canada
As bibliometric indicators are objective, reliable, and cost-effective measures of peer-reviewed research outputs, they are expected to play an increasingly important role in research…
